About the Joint Replacement Center
The Joint Replacement Center at Montrose Regional Health is the only one of its kind on the Western Slope and is designed to provide a detailed clinical pathway throughout the preoperative, surgical, and postoperative phases of orthopaedic care. All elective joint replacement patients are enrolled in this innovative program.
Patients receive a personal notebook at their orthopaedic surgeon’s office the day their surgery is scheduled. This notebook gives patients all the information they need from pre-op education and questionnaires to home care details after surgery.
High-Quality Orthopaedic Care in Montrose
The orthopaedic surgeons perform all elective joint surgeries at MRH on Monday and Tuesday, and patients attend a pre-operative education class prior to their surgery and hospitalization. Patients in the Joint Replacement Center are cared for and encouraged by the same staff members throughout their stay.
Staff also provides the preoperative education class for these patients and their support person. If the patient chooses, these therapists will continue to work with the patient throughout their outpatient therapy.
