At Boulder Community Hospital, we use a patient-centered approach to medical care. Every patient receives a personalized care plan that guides the entire medical team to deliver the best possible care in a safe and comfortable environment. We’ll chaperon you through every step of the surgical process.
During the past 25 years, research has reliably revealed the effectiveness of pre-surgery educational programs in diminishing patients’ anxiety, improving recovery and contributing to positive patient outcomes.
Patients play a vital role in making surgery successful. You should actively participate in your care by taking all of the necessary steps to prepare for surgery. Our Hip Surgery ebook has important information about every step of the surgery process. Not only does it tell you how to get ready for your procedure, it also explains the recovery process and rehabilitation for your hip.
Ask family members and friends for assistance if you need help understanding anything in the ebook. You can also contact our Pre-surgical Testing Nurse Practitioner Leslie Glover at (303) 938-5258.
