performed by a local orthopedic surgeon who is with you from beginning
to end. Our outcomes for joint replacement are best in class and our infection
control measures have resulted in one of the lowest infection rates in
the state. Supported by a high performing medical team of anesthesiologists
and internal medicine specialists, you can always expect safety, quality
Our Total Joint Program offers shoulder, hip and knee replacements with
cutting edge plastics, ceramics as well as titanium and improved metal
on metal technology. In addition, we are the only total joint replacement
program on the Western Slope to utilize CT and MRI imaging to form a more
customized joint. That customization helps better align the new joint
to your body's natural geometry.
For most patients, total joint replacements are outpatient procedures,
but some people prefer to stay overnight and receive extra support. At
Gunnison Valley Health we can accommodate both without transporting you
outside of the valley.
After a joint replacement, painful and debilitating joint injuries can
be a thing of the past. Our skilled multidisciplinary team of surgeons,
nurses, rehabilitation experts and others will help you on the road to
a new lifestyle of increased activity and mobility.
