Orthopedic Medicine

The board-certified orthopedic surgeons at Gunnison Valley Hospital care for your musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, ligaments, nerves and tendons. They commonly treat injuries caused by sport or physical activity, and they can help manage arthritis or osteoporosis.

Often our orthopedic specialists will recommend nonsurgical treatments such as physical therapy or medications. But, when necessary, our skilled surgeons can replace your damaged joint with a state-of-the-art artificial joint, and get you back to hiking, biking, golf and all the other activities you’ve been unable to do.

Beyond the surgical procedure, our orthopedic specialists focus on your overall well-being and coordinate with your primary care physician to ensure you have all the tools you need to get back to a healthy lifestyle with increased mobility. This includes education, pain management, nutritional support, and physical and occupational therapy.
