The Total Joint Program at Gunnison Valley Health

The Choice is Simple

Gunnison Valley Health provides best in class outpatient total joint replacements 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 and excellence.

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.
