North Colorado Medical Center provides various support and education resources for orthopedic patients including counseling services and assistance from case managers in identifying community-based resources.
To ensure patients are comfortable with both their diagnosis and proposed treatment, the hospital offers a free Total Joint Education class for patients preparing to undergo total knee and/or total hip replacement surgery.
Total Joint Education: Instructors will cover everything from what equipment a patient will need after surgery to how much pain to expect. Classes are held on Tuesdays 9:30-11 a.m. and on Thursdays from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Monfort Family Birth (MFB) classroom at NCMC.
