“"Dr. Glaser did an outstanding job of repairing my severed anterior tibialis tendon. Thanks to his excellent surgical skill and the watchful care of Eric Little in physical therapy, I am experiencing a full recovery. I especially appreciated Eric's advice to take things slowly and to be patient in the healing process. His extra precautionary suggestions were crucial in my attitude and now I have full use of the foot. Thank you Sierra Pacific Orthopedics!" -- Judi H.”

“"Recently I had a work related on the job injury to my back. I was so pleased I was able to see my primary physician, Dr. Rod Kraft. Dr. Kraft goes way beyond the usual office visit to make sure every detail of your condition is taken care of and explained to me in common lay terms what my problem is and that it was going to take time to heal. I didn't want to take time off from work, but he insisted it would be impossible for me to continue and more damage would be done. Of course he was right. From scheduling for an MRI (thanks Angela) to setting up appointments for other doctors has been so smooth. His entire staff has been so helpful and professional. Just being at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics gives you a secure feeling with so many professionals and also the facilities from the X-Ray department to Summit Surgery Center. It's peace of mind that you are being well taken care of." -- Darwin B.”

“"For the past four years of my life, my desire to be as physically active as possible has been hampered by two nagging hip injuries. The first was before my senior year in high school and I couldn't lift weights or play football because of the pain. Dr. Thaxter went ahead and fixed me up and I was back to normal again. About a year later though, my other hip started bothering me so with no hesitation I went back to Sierra Pacific Orthopedics and Dr. Thaxter was able to do the same procedure. Two months later and I'm still pain free! I also couldn't have made the recovery without the trainers who pushed me through physical therapy." -- Keenan S.”

“"In an effort to avoid a joint replacement surgery I have been receiving injections in my left thumb joint. With the use of the X-ray equipment, the injections are spot on and extremely effective. With the use of a hand brace between injections, the pain of arthritis is controlled for about three months before another injection is needed. I understand I will be able to manage the pain for an extended period of time using the injections, which is a great alternative to surgery." --  Carol L.”

“"I developed carpal tunnel syndrome two years ago. After physical therapy treatment things improved but still problems. After visiting Dr. Majors, my carpal tunnel continues to improve; yet there is just enough discomfort that I haven't stopped my treatment program. I have been approved for surgery, yet it looks as though I may be able to avoid surgery, after consultations and treatments at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics." -- Jack B.”

“I am a 68-year-old retired first grade teacher who has experienced years of low back pain.  My story began with yearly injections, which provided relief for a while; however, the injections began to be more frequent with less and less success. Dr. Aryan explained the procedure of decompression and fusion of L4, L5, and S1 vertebra in a thorough way that my husband and I could see and understand. The office staff and support staff that followed through after surgery and in the hospital stay were very helpful and informative.  Follow-ups in the office afterwards were positive and encouraging. It's been three months since surgery, and I've been wondering why I didn't have the surgery sooner.  Walking and flexibility have returned without any damage to my affected leg. I would definitely recommend Dr. Aryan and his entire staff who work together as a team to provide all the necessary information in order for a patient to make a decision regarding the health of their spine.”
