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.

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.

Tina is knowledgeable, compassionate and has me on my way to recovery!
Elizabeth Korinek

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!

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.

After my great success with Grant after my knee surgery, requested him once again for arthritis issues on both shoulders. While there are still improvements to be made, I feel I have made progress in a very short time, because of Grant’s knowledge & skills in his field! Most important, he cares about his patients & listens to their needs! In addition, Grant makes sure his staff follows through with his instructions & gives the same great care! Many thanks & appreciation to Grant & his staff at GBO!!

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.

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.

Vitals
Fixed my sons Right Clubfoot with very mininal treatment compared to other doctors recommendations. Minimal serial casting, No surgery, minimal bracing time. And over a year now with No treatment, and His foot looks perfect. Although I felt rushed along, and sometimes dismissed. I cant complain much, as I also felt the doctor did an excellent job, and wasnt there to screw around or put me through the ringer with extra treatments or procedures. Too many doctors out there seem to try and treat Clubfoot, and do more damage than good. Dont go anywhere else for clubfoot treatment.

The check-in process was efficient. All the staff members were professional and cordial.

I hurt my foot playing softball last summer. My friend referred me to Great Basin Orthopaedics. The doctors were super nice, and the employees were super nice, too. I hope to be back on the softball field this summer.
Kelly M.
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.
James Tiner
It's been a few years since I went here with a broken arm and I can't thank them enough for the excellent care I got!!! I was able to avoid surgery and avoid my arm getting to stiff since he didn't put me in a full cast. The staff was super friendly throughout the whole building from the receptionist, the nurses, the x-ray techs and the dr. Literally everyone had a smile and that's rarer these days
Carissa Byram
It was a great visit. I felt heard and cared for, and left feeling very satisfied. I immediately texted a friend to recommend GBO.

I love how smoothly everything runs here. My doctor is amazing the nurse is great too. From checking in, to follow ups to my surgery (ACL) everything went so smoothly and even my post op care. I wish all my doctors outside ortho would go so smoothly! Great job guys!
