Total Shoulder Surgery Minden NVHave you been told that you need total shoulder surgery?

Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, a full-service practice, is pleased to offer total shoulder surgery to patients in this area. We have offices close to Minden, located in Gardnerville and Carson City.

What is Total Shoulder Surgery?

The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint where the head of the humerus (the “ball”) rotates within the glenoid cavity of the scapula (the “socket”). During total shoulder surgery, the surgeon replaces both the ball and the socket with prosthetics. This is different than partial shoulder surgery, where only the ball is replaced, and the socket remains in place. There’s also a third type of shoulder replacement surgery referred to as “reverse shoulder surgery,” usually reserved for patients with a severe rotator cuff tear, where the surgeon essentially switches the placement of the ball and socket within the shoulder joint.

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!"
