The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval – Orthopedic Care
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Certification for Total Hip, Total Shoulder and Total Knee Replacement
recognizes Longmont United Hospital’s exceptional orthopedic care.
This advanced certification demonstrates the hospital’s compliance
with advanced disease-specific care standards and total hip and total
knee replacement requirements, including orthopedic consultation, and
pre-operative, intraoperative and post-surgical orthopedic surgeon follow-up care.
In partnership with Front Range Orthopedics and Spine, Longmont United
Hospital's team of orthopedic specialists possess expertise in the
areas of total joint replacement, often resulting from late-stage osteoarthritis
or rheumatoid arthritis; sports medicine, where injuries often result
from overuse or fractures; hand surgery, and joint and bone injuries caused
by trauma. We work closely with the radiology and physical therapy departments
to provide you full service and seamless orthopedic care.
Our department utilizes advances in minimally invasive and arthroscopic
technologies, allowing you to recover from procedures more quickly. Our
imaging capabilities, including routine X-rays, ultra-sound tests, CT
Scans, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), allow our orthopedic surgeons
