Foot & Ankle

Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Care

Your feet and ankles are the foundation of your daily mobility. When they hurt, everything suffers. Our Foot & Ankle specialists are here not just to alleviate pain but to identify and correct any underlying structural and over-use issues that may be causing it.

With locations in Reno, Sparks, and Carson City, we provide a wide range of treatments for injuries and conditions, ranging from complex surgical procedures to orthotic devices. Our Foot & Ankle team holds some important distinctions over other care providers:

  • Have completed four years of medical school
  • Are nationally licensed as medical doctors
  • Have five years of surgical residency for the entire musculoskeletal system
  • Have one year of advanced fellowship training in Foot & Ankle surgery
  • Are nationally certified as orthopedic specialists 
  • Practice under the regulation of state medical boards

The best care is the kind provided by a coordinated multi-specialty team. Our Foot & Ankle physicians work in concert with nurse practitioners, physician assistants, imaging specialists, physical therapists, and orthotists/pedorthists – those certified in the creation and application of custom footwear and supportive devices­ – to provide every patient with a treatment plan that gets them back on their feet again.

Custom Orthotics & Shoes

Orthotic inserts and properly fitted shoes are the cornerstones of conservative foot care. These inserts provide long-term mechanical solutions for the everyday stresses we place on our feet. Additionally, the right shoe for your foot type and functional needs plays a critical role in the effectiveness of your orthotics. ROC orthotics are made from a wide range of materials carefully selected to meet the specific needs of every patient. Our shop also carries a wide variety of shoes from leading brands such as New Balance, Aetrex, and Dr. Comfort.

"Dr. Cassinelli is an amazing surgeon! He has an amazing bedside manner and really cares for his patients. He worked wonders on my foot! I highly recommend him and would see him again!"

"Dr. Whitlow fixed my broken ankle after a nasty fall on the ice. He is extremely knowledgeable and thorough, and my recovery is not as painful as I was expecting. ROC is blessed to have him on their team. He is very nice, which is always a plus!"

"Dr. Lundeen and his nurse practitioner, Tracy Harig, are amazing, they listen to you and they have wonderful bedside manner. They always check in on you and make sure everything is going as planned. I highly recommend these two. I went to them for a second opinion after I was walking in a boot for almost a year, and they proceeded to get to the bottom of my problems and recommended surgery that went smoothly. Everything was great. They're really great people to work with and the whole staff is wonderful. Check in is the most amazing experience I've ever went through."
