Trauma & Fractures Physicians

"Dr. Althausen was my surgeon for a hip replacement after I fell while visiting family in Reno. He was reassuring and upbeat prior to surgery which was calming. After surgery, I progressed rapidly. My recovery reflects the expertise of this caring and gifted surgeon. I feel fortunate that he was given my case."

"Dr. O'Mara did surgery on my clavicle after my motorcycle accident, and he is one of the best doctors I've ever been to. He was so thorough in his explanations on what he was doing and made me feel calm and comfortable about everything. Even after surgery, he made sure I knew how to take care of myself and made sure I was comfortable. I will always appreciate him!"

"I had a crazy heli-ski accident in Utah and had to be operated on there but required a surgeon locally to me in Reno who could provide an excellent level of sustained care as well as physical therapy. Dr. Bray came very highly recommended by my operating surgeon, in fact, he insisted on him! And I am so glad Dr. Bray was able to take me on. The level of care, expertise, and compassion he continues to show is outstanding and I couldn't recommend him enough for complex traumatic orthopedic injuries. For my DPT, he recommended Channing, a DPT within their organization and she is another reason why I am not only walking but running and skiing 10 months after such a crazy accident."

"This is the first time I've had surgery or a serious injury in my 68 years. Dr. Swanson was very reassuring and a positive presence as soon as I met him. I felt very confident that he was the expert and dedicated professional to help me. I couldn't have been in better hands and I am grateful to ROC staff and Dr. Swanson. I recommend him highly for your care and recovery."
