Since 1966, men, women, and children throughout Carson City, Nevada, and the surrounding communities have turned to Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic for their various orthopedic needs. We are a multi-disciplinary team of board-certified physicians that specializes in various orthopedic services, ranging from conservative treatment and physical therapy to technologically advanced joint replacement and reconstruction and spine surgery. Whether you have recently suffered an injury or you have unexplained pain that won’t go away on its own, we’ll be glad to work with you to determine the best course of orthopedic treatment and offer care in a convenient location close to home.
When you visit Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, you can be certain that you’ll work with an orthopedic specialist who has dedicated his or her career to their area of expertise. The first step in the treatment process is to accurately diagnose the origin of your problem, and our orthopedic physicians will conduct an extensive physical examination in our office, often with the assistance of Carson City’s only open MRI imaging technology, as well as digital X-rays and other medical imagery technology. With this information in hand, we’ll be able to walk you through your condition, explain the treatment options available for you, and answer any questions that you might have. No matter if you have a sports-related shoulder injury, a degenerative spine condition causing neck or back pain, or an overuse injury in your knee, we can provide you with the personalized care that you require. Our advanced orthopedic surgeons are ready to perform a knee, hip, or other joint replacement, spine surgery, or other procedure to help you relieve your pain, restore your function and mobility, and return your life.
Joint Replacement, Spine Surgery, Physical Treatment and Rehabilitation & Other Treatments from Experienced Orthopedists Serving Carson City, NV & All Surrounding Cities
At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Care, we provide the best possible care to our patients. In many cases, orthopedic injuries can be effectively managed with a personalized, conservative treatment plan that may incorporate physical therapy, pain management techniques and other non-surgical methods. If, however, several weeks of conservative treatment fails to deliver the results that you expect, or your orthopedic specialist indicates that surgery is your best option for dealing with your injury, one of our highly regarded orthopedic surgeons will be available to handle the procedure in an ambulatory surgery center in Carson City, NV, or a surrounding community.
A few examples of the types of injuries that we can help treat include MCL/ACL/UCL tears, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative spine conditions like herniated discs and spinal stenosis, and a number of hand, finger, and wrist injuries. Whether the injury just happened, your symptoms have developed seemingly overnight, or you’ve never quite gotten over an old sports injury, our team will diagnose the problem and walk you through the treatment options that are available to you. We offer joint replacement and reconstruction for the knee, hip, shoulder and elbow, minimally invasive spine surgery to alleviate neck and back pain, and many other advanced treatments.
