Devastating injury can be a real motivator. For Allie Janas, seeing patients with serious orthopaedic injuries heal and transition home was the inspiration for her career path. More than a decade ago, when she began her nursing career as a trauma ICU nurse, she witnessed firsthand how an efficient and evidence-based orthopaedic team could change the course of a patient’s future.

Throughout her well-rounded career, Allie has seen and treated a variety of acute and chronic injuries. She has diverse experience in all orthopaedic subspecialties – including conditions and injuries of the shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, knee, foot and ankle – and is passionate about constantly developing her skills to improve patient outcomes.

Allie’s approach to patient care is rooted in compassion. Sensitive to the emotional, financial and physical toll an injury may have on a patient, she is dedicated to providing high quality, patient-centered care. At Great Basin Orthopaedics, this includes keeping her patients informed so they can be at the forefront of decision-making, as well as collaborating with the surgical team to develop high quality health care plans with an emphasis on the patient experience.

Allie was born and raised in Carson City, Nevada, where she developed an appreciation for all the activities our beautiful area has to offer. When Allie and her husband aren’t exploring the outdoors, they can be found spending time with family and friends, or proudly supporting their daughter – a multi-sport enthusiast who participates in hockey, gymnastics, soccer, dance and basketball – from the stands.

Thorough, knowledgeable and professional

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!!
Great care from all levels!!! Excellent care from the emergency room to rehab! Follow-up care will be excellent, also!!! Excellent care, excellent recovery, makes healing much faster, perfect recipe!!!
I have been going to GBO for many years and the staff and doctors are amazing and easy to talk to about your conditions , as well as, procedures if needed.

Sandy Jennings
the staff at Great Basin is excellent from the phone, front desk, nurses and x-ray tech. very pleasant to deal with.
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.

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.
Trisha R
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!
Sharon B.

I can not thank Dr. Dickens enough!!!! He got my daughter in the following Monday after her injury and then surgery the next day!!! So great full and thankful for him! He did awesome job as well with the surgery! Hardly don't see the scar!
