Performing a Wide Array of Upper Extremity Surgeries

Upper Extremity Surgery Carson City NVDo you need surgery performed on your shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist, or hand? If so, you can receive the care you need at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. We’re proud to have been serving patients in Reno, NV, Carson City, and surrounding areas since 1966. Although we generally recommend that patients first attempt to relieve their symptoms using conservative methods, we also offer a variety of upper extremity procedures for when surgery is necessary.

What surgeries do we offer?

The skilled orthopedic surgeons on our team have experience performing a wide array of surgical procedures on the upper extremities. Some of the surgeries we most commonly perform include:

  • Rotator cuff surgery – If you’ve torn your rotator cuff, we can perform surgery to repair the tear and reattach the tendon to the humerus (your upper arm bone). And in less severe cases, we may be able to provide relief by simply smoothing or trimming the tendon.
  • Shoulder replacement surgery – We most often perform traditional shoulder replacement surgery, which involves replacing the top of the humerus with a prosthetic ball and the shoulder socket with a prosthetic cup. For patients with an irreparably torn rotator cuff or cuff tear arthropathy, however, we also offer reverse shoulder replacement surgery, during which we replace the top of the humerus with a prosthetic cup and the shoulder socket with a prosthetic ball.
  • Carpal tunnel release surgery – In order to relieve pressure on the median nerve, we divide the transverse carpal ligament and increase the size of the carpal tunnel.

At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we take the time to get to know each patient so that we can develop a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to his or her specific needs, lifestyle, and goals.

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!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

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."
