Schedule an Appointment With an Orthopedic Specialist at Our Reno, NV, Office
If you’re living with chronic pain in your neck, back, or joints, you should schedule an appointment to meet with an orthopedic specialist at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic’s Reno, Nevada, office. We take a patient-centered approach to treatment, and we’ll do everything possible to help you achieve relief from your symptoms.
At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we focus on conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and nerves. In many cases, patients come to us for help with acute conditions (ones that occurred suddenly) such as:
- Torn ligaments
In other instances, our orthopedic specialists treat patients who are living with chronic conditions, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Degenerative spine conditions
We’re also proud to have a thriving sports medicine practice. Many of the orthopedic specialists on our team specialize in sports medicine, with some even having served as physicians for the U.S. Ski Team. Whether you were recently injured while participating in a sport, you’re in the midst of the recovery and rehabilitation process, or you’re simply looking for guidance on how to safely improve your performance, we can provide you with the care you need and deserve.
The Treatment Process
An orthopedic specialist on our team will be able to guide you through diagnosis and treatment, all the way to recovery.
The first step toward relief is diagnosis. When you meet with an orthopedic specialist at our Reno, NV, office, he or she will have a discussion with you about your condition and perform an examination to determine what is causing your symptoms. We’re pleased to offer state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, such as our open MRI machine, to help with this process.
An orthopedic specialist often recommends that patients pursue a course of conservative treatment before turning to surgery. Depending on your condition, this may include pain medication, corticosteroid injections, physical therapy, heat/cold therapy, exercise, and stretching. Fortunately, we have physical and occupational therapists on site who can guide you through any necessary exercises.
If it turns out that you do need surgery for your condition, you can rest easy knowing that our team includes surgeons who can assist you with the procedure. We regularly perform joint replacements (including shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle replacements), as well as a number of spine-related surgeries, and many other procedures.
One of the benefits of partnering with us for orthopedic treatment is that we’re able to perform many procedures using minimally invasive techniques. While traditional open surgery usually requires at least one large incision, minimally invasive surgery generally requires just a few small incisions. Minimally invasive surgery has many advantages over open surgery, including the fact that it lowers the risk of infection and other complications, requires a shorter recovery time, and causes less pain and stiffness during the recovery period.
After undergoing surgery, you’ll need to go through rehabilitation. The physical and occupational therapists on our team are specially trained to help you recover from surgery as efficiently and safely as possible.
