Orthopedic Surgeons Available to Help Reno, NV, Patients
A qualified orthopedic surgeon can sometimes make the difference between a life of pain and a life of comfort. If you have an orthopedic condition or injury, you can turn with confidence to Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. Each orthopedic surgeon at our Reno, Nevada, facility is knowledgeable, experienced, and capable of handling a wide range of orthopedic needs.
What Conditions Do We Treat?
At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we focus on musculoskeletal conditions, which include those affecting the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. The orthopedic surgeons in our practice specialize in various disciplines, including shoulder, spine, hip, elbow, hand, knee, ankle, and foot surgery, helping to ensure that there will be someone available to work with you who has extensive experience treating your condition. Our orthopedic surgeons also work closely with our in-house specialists to provide physical therapy and pain management services at our Reno location.
Our orthopedic surgeons perform a wide array of shoulder surgeries, including shoulder replacements and rotator cuff repairs. We also provide surgical and nonsurgical treatments for arthritis and shoulder dislocations.
If you’re experiencing chronic back pain that hasn’t responded to conservative treatments, we may be able to provide relief using a spinal decompression, discectomy, artificial disc replacement, corpectomy, kyphoplasty, laminectomy, laminotomy, or spinal fusion. In some cases, we may be able to perform surgery using minimally invasive techniques, which can lead to a shorter recovery time.
We offer total and partial hip replacements, which may be appropriate for patients whose chronic hip pain significantly affects their quality of life. The determination to replace all or part of the hip joint is based on factors that vary according to individual patients. But generally, a total hip replacement is appropriate for individuals who are experiencing a degenerative condition like arthritis, which typically affects both the ball and socket of the hip joint. A partial hip replacement is more likely to be an option for patients who sustained a sudden injury that damaged only part of the joint.
Elbow & Hand Surgery
Our elbow and hand surgeons perform various procedures, including elbow replacements, UCL reconstructions (also known as “Tommy John surgery”), wrist replacements, carpal tunnel procedures, fasciotomies, and subtotal palmar fasciectomies.
You depend on your knee joints for a multitude of daily activities that you never give a second thought to—until an injury or years of wear and tear lead to chronic pain that threatens to put you on the sidelines. Knee pain is a common ailment that affects people of all ages. If you’re experiencing knee pain that hasn’t gotten better, even after pursuing conservative treatments like physical therapy, we may be able to get you back on track by performing a knee replacement or an ACL/MCL reconstruction or repair.
Ankle & Foot Surgery
We perform a number of ankle and foot procedures, including ankle replacements and Achilles tendon rupture repairs.
Our Approach to Treatment
In many cases, our patients can achieve sufficient relief from their symptoms without surgery. For this reason, we typically recommend that our patients begin with a course of conservative treatments, such as targeted exercises, hot or cold compresses, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and corticosteroid injections. If these methods prove to be ineffective, however, surgery may be necessary.
When you schedule an appointment at our Reno, NV, office, you’ll meet with an orthopedic specialist who will examine you and help determine whether you’re a candidate for one of our procedures. You’ll be glad to know that we’re able to perform many surgeries arthroscopically, which can reduce your risk of infection and significantly cut down on your recovery time.
