BIO

Grant Cooper is a science nerd. Not only does he really like science, but he’s good at it — as in, he graduated summa cum laude with a degree in chemistry. Pair that with a passion for helping others and Grant found himself drawn to a career in health care.

After exploring several fields, Grant settled on physical therapy. What appealed to him, compared to other medical fields, was the ability to address a variety of patient conditions, and the opportunity to spend a lot of time with each patient. Grant earned a Bachelor of Chemistry from the University of Nevada, Reno, then attended a Top 5 Physical Therapy School, the University of Iowa, Carver College of Medicine, where he earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy. After a year working at another orthopaedic practice, Grant joined Great Basin Orthopaedics (GBO).

At GBO, Grant works with both post-operative and non-operative patients, helping them return to health and mobility. He starts by listening to each patient and treating them according to their specific concerns and needs. He works to establish a rapport and strives to make each patient feel comfortable and encouraged throughout the recovery process. While he is an physical therapy generalist, Grant particularly enjoys working with lower extremities in post-operative patients.

Born and raised in Reno, Nevada, Grant is happy to be practicing in his hometown alongside his mentor and longtime friend Joel Peck, Director of Physical Therapy at GBO. Married since 2017, Grant and his wife are expecting their first child in spring of 2022. When he’s not helping his patients regain their mobility, he enjoys hiking and exploring Lake Tahoe with his family. Grant had been attending University of Nevada football and basketball games since he was a baby and looks forward to continuing the tradition with his own child.

I'm very pleased with everything they have done for me.

Gracias por toda la ayuda durante la visita.
the staff at Great Basin is excellent from the phone, front desk, nurses and x-ray tech. very pleasant to deal with.
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.

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!

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!!!
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.

This place is amazing! I am telling everyone I know!
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.

Our daughter broke her arm twice and was seen by Dr. Lilyquist. He is patient, kind, and explained things well to us.

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.

I have been a patient of both Dr. Fyda and Dr. Hayes. Both doctors were thorough and knowledgeable in all facets of my care. I felt very comfortable and confident knowing I was in well-trained hands.

The x-ray tech Kathy was a pleasure. I was crying from the pain and she even took the time out to hug me.
Great service. Nice staff. Would recommend to anyone needing knee replacement.

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.

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 a great visit. I felt heard and cared for, and left feeling very satisfied. I immediately texted a friend to recommend GBO.
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

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!
Austin Noriega
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!!
