Amazing things happen here every day. Procedures performed by a highly trained, vastly experienced team of specialist surgeons. Motion restored. Pain relieved. Lives improved. And at the end of the day, our patients go home to rest and recover where they’re most comfortable.

As the area’s only Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC), we’re uniquely qualified and accredited to provide the perfect outpatient experience from the moment you arrive to the time of your discharge later that day.

Home to many firsts in Northern Nevada orthopedic history, our surgery center –recently expanded and reimaged – is a convenient and welcoming facility that’s state-of-the-art in every way:

  • 20,000 sq. ft.
  • Five Surgical Suites

  • In-house Anesthesiologist Team

Pre-Admission Surgical Screening (PASS)

A significant component of Reno Orthopedic Center’s unique, one-stop-shop approach to care is our PASS clinic.

Located just to the right of our entryway reception desk, PASS is a convenient pre-admission screening service that alleviates the headaches and runaround of getting cleared for your upcoming procedure.

Everything you need to be surgery-ready happens right here in one easy visit. Blood work, blood pressure, EKG, RN review of your medical history, anesthesiologist approval, and your actual scheduling.

Your physician’s assistant will help you coordinate your PASS appointment.
