Our Recovery Center
Post-Operative Recovery with 24-Hour Skilled Nursing Care
Not all surgeries at The Orthopaedic and Spine Center of Southern Colorado will require an overnight stay, but for those that do, we have a state-of-the-art recovery center with skilled nursing staff. Our Colorado Springs recovery center is a modern facility where patients can recover comfortably and privately with 24-hour nursing care.
We have nine private suites available to care for patients who need to stay overnight after their procedure. Family and friends are welcome to visit patients in our recovery center.
Recovery Center FAQ:
How will my pain be managed?
Pain management is an important part of your recovery. During your stay at the facility, we will ask you to rate your pain using a numerical scale (1-10) as shown below. We will use this rating to determine the best treatment for your pain. We will use a combination of different pain management options. Prior to your procedure, the management of your pain will be discussed with your anesthesiologist as they are experts in pain management. Please feel free to bring up any concerns or fears you may have.
Will I work with Physical Therapy?
Yes. Our therapy team will work with you while you are at the Orthopaedic and Spine Center to promote your full recovery.
Can friends or family visit me during my stay?
Yes. Your support system is an important part of your recovery. Our visiting hours are between 7:00 am and 8:00 pm. Please note that while your family or friends may stay until 8:00 pm, the entrance is locked at 5 pm and all visitors will no longer be able to enter after that time. Please note that with Covid-19, we do ask that you have one visitor while you are here, and we prefer that it is someone that you cohabitate with. We encourage your family or friend to be present for physical therapy, which allows them to learn how they can best assist you at home.
Will meals be provided to me during my stay?
Yes. Three meals per day will be provided to you. A continental breakfast is provided with a variety of options including coffee, teas, juices, milk, yogurt, toast and cereal. Lunch and dinner are provided through a hot meal delivery from a local restaurant with options that are suitable for post-operative recovery. You are encouraged to bring snacks from home, as our snack options are limited. If you have special dietary restrictions, please provide your own meal options.
