Kaylee Nelson, PA-C

I received my Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Indiana State University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from University of Nevada, Reno. While attending these programs, I participated in research about neuropathic signaling and neurologic deformities during both undergraduate and graduate school. My graduate research was published in the International Journal of Health Sciences. I was trained in orthopedic surgery at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Denver, Colorado and at the Reno Orthopedic Clinic. Before I went to PA school, I worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant at a local skilled nursing facility and at Renown.

Originally I was born in Reno, but grew up in San Diego. My family comes from Elko and most of them still reside in Reno. My hobbies include snowboarding, swimming, hunting, yoga, and reading science fiction. In the summer before PA school, I lived in Costa Rica for 6 months, where I studied Spanish.

I am particularly honored to treat chronic pain patients, because I suffer from chronic knee pain myself. I have undergone multiple surgeries and attempts at conservative treatment to manage my pain. My experience helps me understand the psychological and physical effects that chronic pain imposes on a patient’s life. Using a multi-modality treatment approach, I hope to improve the quality of life of each patient I see.

Patient Reviews

See What Our Patients Have To Say

At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we take the time to get to know each patient so that we can develop a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to his or her specific needs, lifestyle, and goals.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"

I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life.

"Dr. Jones and his staff through the surgical procedures and other methods they have performed over the years have enhanced my daily living experience dramatically. I am leading a more productive life without the daily pain I dealt with in the past. I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life."
