The team of orthopedic specialists at Carson Valley Health offers a full range of care, surgical repair, and digital imaging services.

What Is Orthopedics?

People rely on healthy bones and joints to remain active and mobile, especially in the event of an injury accident or some other disability that affects the musculoskeletal system – that includes the bones, tissues, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues. Our orthopedic services include the latest, top-of-the-line treatments geared to preserving or restoring your quality of life by improving your mobility, strength, and stamina.

You should see an orthopedic specialist if you are experiencing joint pain, swelling, or stiffness, or you have difficulty moving during daily activities. If you have difficulty moving or limited mobility because of an injury to the musculoskeletal system. Treatment is available that provides significant pain relief and help improve your quality of life either through conservative, noninvasive treatment like physical therapy, or more aggressive treatments such as minimally invasive surgery. Some of the minimally invasive surgeries we offer at Carson Valley Health include total joint replacement, tendon repairs such as carpal tunnel release surgery, and fracture repairs.

What Do Orthopedic Doctors Treat?

Whether you need emergency care for a sports injury or care for a chronic condition, our orthopedic physicians and highly trained support staff can help. We offer preventative care measures you can take to help avoid future injury, as well.

Orthopedics involves treatment of:

  • Ankles: The ankles can sustain sprains, fractures, or chronic instability.
  • Rotator cuffs: The rotator cuff is a group of tissues and muscles surrounding that help keep the head of your upper arm bone within the ball-and-socket joint. Rotator cuff injuries can cause a dull ache in the shoulder which worsens with the use of an arm away from the body.
  • Hands: The hands are a highly complex anatomical area of the body. Our orthopedic physicians treat hand fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains, muscle tears, ligament tears, tendon injuries, and hand numbness or weakness. We also specialize in carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Joints: We treat arthritis, contractures, or swelling and inflammation of the joints.
  • Knees: As one of the primary weight-bearing joints, the knees are prone to ligament and tendon injuries. We treat meniscus injuries, ACL injuries, and provide total knee replacement surgical procedures for patients with chronic knee pain or instability.
  • Elbows: The elbow joints can be injured through conditions such as tennis elbow or tendonitis. We also perform total elbow replacement surgery.
  • Hips: The hips are a crucial weight-bearing joint and are prone to injury in the aging process. We offer total hip replacement surgery and hip fracture treatment.
  • Sports injuries: There is a vast array of sports injuries that are treated by orthopedic doctors. Sports injuries are usually best treated by orthopedic physicians because most sports injuries affect the bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and connective tissues, and that is orthopedic medicine.
