We also have physical and occupational therapists on staff who are qualified to assist you with any necessary therapy or rehabilitation.

Conditions Treated

Some of the conditions that our athletic specialists commonly treat include the following:

  • ACL/MCL/UCL tears – The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) are located within the knee joint, while the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) is located within the elbow joint. Tears like these can often be treated conservatively, although surgery to repair or replace the damaged ligament may be necessary under certain circumstances.
  • Arthritis – Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis (there are more than 100 different types and related conditions), is often treated conservatively. However, joint repair or replacement surgery is sometimes required.
  • Bursitis – Bursitis, which refers to the irritation or inflammation of a bursa sac, is generally treated with conservative techniques but sometimes requires the removal of fluid using a needle (surgery is rarely necessary).
  • Dislocations – Dislocations generally require closed reduction, which involves manually easing the bones back into place. If the affected bones need to be realigned, or if the surrounding ligaments and tendons need to be tightened, surgery may be required.
  • Fractures – Although many fractures can be treated with just a cast, surgically inserting plates, pins, rods, or screws is sometimes necessary.
  • Frozen shoulder – While surgery is rarely needed to treat frozen shoulder, in the event that it is necessary, it can typically be performed arthroscopically.
  • Rotator cuff tears – If conservative treatments fail to provide sufficient relief, surgery for a rotator cuff tear may involve smoothing or trimming the rotator cuff tendon (in less severe cases), or repairing the tear and reattaching the tendon to the humerus (in more severe cases).
  • Runner’s knee – The majority of runner’s knee cases are treated without surgery, but in rare cases a lateral release may need to be performed.
  • Sprains and strains – Surgery is generally indicated only when the ligament (in the case of a sprain) or the muscle (in the case of a strain) is completely torn.
  • Tennis elbow – Also known as “tendinitis,” tennis elbow can typically be treated without the need for surgery. However, it’s important to promptly and properly treat tennis elbow, since failing to do so could lead to a more serious condition that requires surgical intervention.

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!"
