Get back to doing what you love

Injuries happen. Life wears and tears on us. And sometimes we’re dealt a less-than-perfect hand when it comes to our bones and joints. But that doesn’t mean we throw in the towel on doing the things we love to do. And it doesn’t mean we have to live in pain.

The orthopaedic specialists at Great Basin Orthopaedics treat the whole spectrum of bone and joint injury, from diagnosis through rehabilitation. With sports medicine doctors, fellowship-trained specialists in foot & ankle, hand, knee, shoulder and trauma, on-site physical therapy and medical imaging, we have the technical expertise, experience, resources and skill to get you back to the life you’re missing.

What hurts?

Knee

Knee

As the largest and one of the most used joints in the body, the knee is highly susceptible to injury. From sprains and strains to dislocation and arthritis, there are many causes of knee pain, and just as many treatment options. 

Hand & Wrist

Hand & Wrist

Brushing your hair, pouring milk, opening a door — hand and wrist function are essential to our daily lives. When injury causes pain or inhibits motion or function, it's time to see an expert who can help.

Hip

Hip

When hip pain persists and prevents you from walking or standing comfortably, GBO can help. From total hip replacement to arthroscopic surgery and physical therapy, we have many options to reduce or eliminate pain and enhance mobility.

Elbow

Elbow

The elbow connects the radius and ulna to the humerus, connecting these parts through a system of ligaments and muscles. The elbow is a complicated joint, and despite its nickname, elbow injury is anything but funny.

Shoulder

Shoulder

Many people endure reduced function or pain in the shoulder unnecessarily. Patients benefit from GBO's board certified and board eligible surgeons who have specialty training in shoulder treatment, as well as onsite physical therapy.

Foot & Ankle

Foot & Ankle

GBO offers comprehensive foot and ankle care using both non-surgical and surgical methods. We work with you to restore function and alleviate pain resulting from injury or disease.

Dr. Kieckbusch showed me the x-rays and explained the problem and said when I was ready he would correct the problem. Very good personality and explained it so I understood it. Will definitely go back when I'm ready.

The referral to the Physical Therapy Specialists was great! I really appreciate the efficiency of this practice in terms of taking me back at my scheduled appointment time, efficiency through x-ray, and not having to wait for the doctor. These attributes really made the experience.

Always professional, courteous and compelling for me, the patient, to do exercises that enhance performance. I am challenged to exercise Amy's list of items so I can get better through each appointment. VG!

Dr. Dickens is a great surgeon he has done now over 4 surgeries after I was in a motorcycle accident when a car hit me. He has really been an advocate for me and for getting things taken care of. Plus his positive attitude and encouragement is second to none.

Great Basin Orthopedics repaired my elbow accident and recently performed a total hip replacement. The elbow outcome was excellent using GBO's Physical Therapy services and I am hopeful the hip will be better than new in a short while. Stephen Capel was my therapist for the elbow and is now for my hip. I have full confidence with him.

This place has truly been a godsend since my ACL surgery. Amy knows how and when to increase my activity levels. So lucky to have her helping with my recovery.

I was never a patient, but as an intern I enjoyed my time working here. The Doctors who run the practice are top notch. Work environment is structured organized and cheerful. I was offered a position but they couldn't get it approved but they gave me the help I needed to get my degree!

A very efficient run medical facility. Very professional staff who greeted you with a smile and introduced themselves in all interactions with the organization. A model for other medical groups to take notice.

The staff at Great Basin are the best I've ever encountered. I can't pick just one because they all work so well together and step in when needed to complete a task. I really thought it was amazing. AND all were so friendly and interested.

Dr Hayes helps me with my Plantar Fasciitis. He always offers alternative ways to mediate the pain and also takes care of my concerns. I've been going to him for years and he's amazing every time. Thank you!

The x-ray tech Kathy was a pleasure. I was crying from the pain and she even took the time out to hug me.

My son was seriously injured in a skateboarding accident. The hospital said nothing was broken and sent him home telling him to follow up with an orthopedic specialist. He did not have insurance but was in process of getting some as he just moved to Nevada and no long qualified on mine. I called all the orthopedic clinics I could find they all said they would not see him. Finally one said OK in Sept. Even though I told them he could not use his arm at all and was in incredible pain. Get some insurance and call back. I offered to self pay for him still no. I finally found Great Basin. They were the kindest most helpful people I had talked to anywhere. They got him in within 4 days. The cost was exactly what they said. They then counseled him on where and how to get some insurance. When I followed up with them the next day they explained how they had applied the payment I had sent and his situation regarding insurance. I understood he was going to need insurance for any major treatment. We just needed to have his arm examined and get a professional opinion and make sure letting it go, while we got insurance, was not going to cause more damage. Great Basin is the first medical facility I've had to deal with in the last two years that has actually treated us like living beings. I am so appreciative. Thank you for helping us.

It was super convenient having PT at the same place as my surgery because they worked together to help me focus on my goals, to know what I could and couldn’t do and what my limits were. They were available to answer my questions on the spot, which helped the entire process go faster.
