About UsWe’re called Active Sports Medicine for good reason: one, we serve people who prefer to spend as little time as possible on the sidelines and choose to get back in the game; secondly, because we, too, are active in our pursuit of finding and mastering the best forms of care. That means offering you a healthy, personalized, balanced approach to orthopedic treatments -- from arthroscopic surgery to innovative techniques and therapies that are successfully embraced throughout the world. In other words, choices.
Dr. Jim Pappas,M.D.
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. 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.
