Dr. Jim Pappas

If there’s one doctor you could call “Nevada’s doctor,” chances are Jim’s name would be at the top of that list. He was team physician for the University of Nevada for ten years. More importantly, the Reno native has served his fellow Nevadans both in his hometown as well as in outlying cities like Elko, Battle Mountain and Winnemucca since 1993.

While that may appear like the classic “local doc,” Dr. Pappas is anything but content with the same-old, same-old. In addition to traditional surgical treatments, Dr. Pappas — a board-certified orthopedic surgeon — utilizes innovative technologies such as Lipogems and PRPs to regenerate or repair tissues, advancements fueled in part by a growing body of research and increasing demand for alternative methods of nonsurgical treatments. He’s also one of only two doctors in the area offering mi-eye 2, an in-office, handheld diagnostic tool that provides real time results, a breakthrough alternative to MRIs.
