Rueben Nair, MD

I strive to provide top-quality care to all patients with respect, compassion, and attention to detail. As one of the former team physicians for the Denver Broncos and the Colorado Rockies, and as a current physician member of the US Ski and Snowboard Association, I am passionate about sports medicine and the prevention or management of sports-related injuries. I treat every patient as though they were a professional athlete, with a goal of optimal recovery. My approach is to educate and involve the patient in their clinical process, focusing on patient-directed care.

I utilize evidence-based medicine and my Steadman Hawkins Clinic Denver Sports Medicine fellowship training to treat injuries with state-of-the-art techniques. My surgical and medical interests include arthroscopy of the shoulder, knee and elbow, ACL reconstruction, cartilage restoration, meniscus repairs, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, rotator cuff repairs, shoulder stabilization, total knee arthroplasty, Tommy John elbow surgery and hip arthroscopy with labral repair/reconstruction.

Patient Reviews

See What Our Patients Have To Say

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."
