Inpatient Orthopedic Care

On October 9, BCH Orthopedic Services - except for rehabilitation - were totally relocated to Foothills Hospital, 4747 Arapahoe Avenue, in Boulder.  There were no changes in the range of services available, only the location. This was part of a consolidation of services at Foothills Hospital.  Click here for more information on this important change in local health care.

The full range of orthopedic surgeries are performed at Foothills Hospital. Operating rooms are equipped with the latest technology to support everything from outpatient orthoscopy to such complex procedures as total joint replacements. Some outpatient procedures are also performed at Boulder Community Musculoskeletal Surgery Center.

Patient safety is a high priority at Foothills Hospital. Our orthopedic acute care unit provides up-to-date quality services, using equipment that includes the latest Orthopat autotransfusion technology. Nurses keep abreast of the latest orthopedic procedures and techniques, and many have more than 10 years experience in their fields.

Patients are routinely seen by physical and occupational therapists during their stay. Nurses and therapists provide valuable care, counseling and teaching to assist patients with full recovery. Case managers (social workers), discharge planners, and patient representatives help insure the highest quality of care. Special visits from the following healing modalities are available to complement the standard care:

  • Pain management
  • Massage therapy
  • Pet visitation
  • Chiropractic services
  • Acupuncture services
