Thank you for choosing Tahoe Forest Orthopedics & Sports Medicine for your care.
Our skilled orthopedic professionals offer extensive, state-of-the-art surgical and nonsurgical care, including acute care for fractures, sports medicine services, and elective joint replacement. Our surgeons and anesthesiologists use the latest techniques in knee, hip, and shoulder joint replacement and pain control, allowing our patients to recover faster, be discharged sooner, and get back to enjoying life.
Tahoe Forest Hospital, a UC Davis Center of Excellence, offers the most advanced technologies in direct anterior hip, as well as partial and total knee and shoulder replacement surgery. In fact, we're one of the only hospitals in the Tahoe region performing direct anterior approach hip replacement surgery. It's less invasive and allows for a faster recovery and rehabilitation time than posterior approach hip surgery. The majority of patients are discharged the day after surgery.
We use the most advanced surgical equipment and the latest techniques in multi-modal and regional pain control, allowing patients to get out of bed on the day of surgery, with many patients being discharged the day after surgery. We also offer a number of convenient on-site services for a comprehensive continuum of care, including our ambulatory surgery center in Truckee, digital X-ray, durable medical equipment (DME), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), occupational therapy, and physical therapy.
