Orthopedic Surgery Offered to Reno, NV, Area Residents Through Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic
The thought of undergoing orthopedic surgery can be intimidating to patients. In many cases, if your surgeon has recommended that you pursue a course of surgical treatment, it’s because you’ve already exhausted their list of potential non-surgical remedies, to no avail. This can be a frustrating experience, and many patients become discouraged from pursuing any further treatment, instead resigning themselves to live with their symptoms.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re in the Reno, Nevada, area and you’ve been unable to find relief using various conservative methods, you may wish to consult with the specialists at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. The caring and extensively trained orthopedic specialists at our Reno facility can explain to you the potential benefits of orthopedic surgery and help you determine how to best move forward with treatment.

Why Choose Us for Orthopedic Surgery?
Whether you need shoulder surgery, knee surgery, spine surgery, or any other type of orthopedic surgery, there’s no one in the Reno area better equipped to handle the procedure than Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. Since our founding in 1966, we’ve treated tens of thousands of patients, earning the trust of individuals and respect from fellow practitioners throughout the community. The skilled providers on our team practice in a variety of different specialties, so you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be treated by someone with advanced knowledge about your specific ailment.
When you turn to Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic for orthopedic surgery, you can look forward to receiving a comprehensive care experience. Some clinics require their patients to visit third-party providers for certain services, such as diagnostic testing. This can often impose an excessive burden on patients, since they have to spend their time and energy arranging referrals, coordinating appointments, and traveling from office to office. We disagree with this approach, and instead do everything we can to make receiving treatment as easy and convenient as possible for our patients.
For example, we take pride in offering on-site open MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) technology. Orthopedic specialists consider MRI technology to be an invaluable tool in diagnosing many types of health conditions, but the traditional, enclosed MRI machines can be intensely uncomfortable for patients who are claustrophobic, obese, or susceptible to post-traumatic stress syndrome. Our open MRI machine allows patients to receive their scan while seated or lying down on a wide, rotating table.
We also have specialists on staff to provide a wide range of services. In addition to surgeons, our multidisciplinary team includes doctors who specialize in physical therapy, pain management, and physical medicine and rehabilitation, as well as compassionate and well-trained physician assistants and nurses. All of our team members work together to deliver exceptional care from a patient’s first appointment through the close of treatment.
