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.

I will follow Amy wherever she goes. I relate to her because of her approach, and I trust her judgment and treatment plan(s) without hesitation.

Amazing professional! She made a custom splint for our son (who lost the tip of his thumb) so he could get back to playing sports. She squeezed him in without an appointment. Thank you!

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.

If you live in the Reno area, you just can't do better than Great Basin Orthopaedic. I'm someone with knee problems going way back decades, as well as other orthopedic issues, so I think I know what I'm talking about. Don't settle, get the best, go to Great Basin, or, as they call it GBO. I promise you will be glad you did.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

I was amazed that when making the appointment that they were able to see me in two days.

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.

Doctor Timothy Dooley is the 'ideal' doctor, someone who validates my pain, listens to my problem and treats me with respect and courtesy and he laughed at my silly jokes. Smile and personality that put me at ease! Thank you for being you.

Totally AWESOME STAFF!! You will be glad you used them—you owe it to yourself to check them out, rather than only the HUGE “other” Ortho guys. I tried them both and I am BLESSED that I ended up with GBO. They are passionate about improving your life and helping you fully recover! Six stars out of five, 11 stars out of ten!!
