Recovery & Rehabilitation

Your hip or knee replacement will reduce your joint pain, but healing takes time. Stay on the path to recovery by taking advantage of the comprehensive rehabilitation program at Parkview Medical Center’s Joint Center. Designed exclusively for your specific needs as you recover in the hospital and at home, it’s the longest-running program of its kind in Pueblo. That means you benefit from the most-experienced orthopedic professionals in the area.

Recover with Support

You heal best with help and encouragement from a team. That’s why nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists specially trained in joint care offer you personalized treatment throughout the weeks after your surgery. You’ll take part in group activities with peers who support you in your journey toward recovery. Your family and friends will learn how to help care for you and your new joint, too.
