What Is an Orthopedic Specialist?

Many people throw around the term “orthopedic doctor” without knowing what that person actually does. Some people assume that orthopedists specialize in conditions affecting the bones, but it’s actually more than that. Orthopedic specialists focus on conditions affecting the entire musculoskeletal system, which includes the:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles
  • Tendons
  • Nerves

There are countless conditions—both chronic and acute—that can affect the musculoskeletal system, some of the most common being:

  • Arthritis – This is an umbrella term used to refer to more than 100 different conditions involving joint inflammation, the most common being a degenerative condition known as osteoarthritis.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome – When the tissues surrounding the carpal tunnel swell, often as a result of repetitive hand and wrist motion, it can place undue pressure on the median nerve and lead to pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and a burning sensation.
  • Degenerative spine disorders – This is another umbrella term used to describe spine conditions that progress over time as part of the normal aging process.
  • Dislocations – When a sudden impact forces the bones in a joint out of place, it can cause severe pain, swelling, bruising, an inability to move the joint, and even a visible deformity.
  • Fractures – There are numerous types of fractures, including comminuted fractures (where the bone shatters into at least three pieces), compound fractures (where the bone tears through the adjacent skin), and greenstick fractures (where the bone breaks on only one side).
  • Sprains – A sprain refers to a stretched or torn ligament (note that this is different than a strain, which refers to a stretched or torn muscle or tendon).
  • Tendinitis – When a tendon becomes irritated or inflamed, often due to repetitive motion, it can cause a dull, aching pain, as well as swelling, tenderness, heat, redness, and a crackling or grating sensation.

Although all orthopedic doctors focus their practice on the musculoskeletal system, some narrow their focus even further to subspecialties like joint replacement, oncology, pediatrics, and sports medicine.

Our Approach to Treatment

At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we take a patient-centered approach to treatment. This involves creating a customized treatment plan that satisfies a patient’s needs, preferences, and goals. Our orthopedic doctors typically recommend that patients try to relieve their symptoms using conservative techniques before turning to surgery. A shoulder doctor, for example, might suggest icing the shoulder to reduce inflammation following an injury, or applying a warm compress to increase blood flow. A knee doctor may recommend attending physical therapy to learn rehabilitative knee exercises. Other conservative treatment methods include pain medication, corticosteroid injections, stretching, and periodic rest. In the event that conservative techniques like these don’t provide relief, we can also perform surgery.

Our Services

Because orthopedics is a broad field encompassing the entire musculoskeletal system (including the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves), you may be concerned that your orthopedic doctor will not have experience treating your specific problem. However, because each orthopedic doctor on our team focuses on a specific subarea of orthopedics, you can rest assured that any issue you might have can be addressed by someone with extensive knowledge on that specific topic. Our experts, including those at our Reno, NV, clinic, specialize in the following areas:

  • Ankle surgery
  • Arthroscopy
  • Elbow surgery
  • Electrodiagnostic medicine
  • Foot surgery
  • General orthopedics
  • Hand surgery
  • Joint replacement
  • Microscopic surgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Physical medicine
  • Podiatry
  • Rehabilitation
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Sports medicine

We also have numerous physician assistants and nurse practitioners on our staff to ensure you receive the best care possible.

And, for injuries requiring immediate attention, we also offer treatment through our urgent care clinic, Tahoe Fracture Quick Care. Our orthopedic urgent care doctors treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including but not limited to sprains, strains, and fractures. With affordable prices and short wait times, our urgent care clinic is a smart alternative to an emergency room for non-life-threatening injuries.

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!"

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."
