Joint replacement and orthopedic surgery

If you need surgery, you’ll be surrounded by a team of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists and others with expertise in orthopedic surgery, pain management and rehabilitation. Our orthopedic surgeons are skilled in minimally invasive techniques that lead to faster healing.

Our orthopedic care coordinator gives you a single point of contact for all your questions and needs. This person is your advocate, coordinating pre-op appointments and tests, making sure post-surgery pain is managed effectively and supporting you as you plan to return home.

The tranquil environment at St. Mary’s plays a part in the healing process. Eighth-floor patient rooms offer sweeping views of the valley and Grand Mesa. We’ve made space for family members to settle in on comfortable sleeper sofas. We offer an area where you can safely practice skills like getting in and out of a car or managing stairs.
