While some orthopaedic practices specialize in one or two sub-specialties, all the physicians at Orthopaedic Specialists have expertise in all sub-specialty areas
of orthopaedic medicine.
Orthopaedic Specialists has been serving the community of Las Vegas for over 30 years. Donald R. Mackay, M.D. and John R. Thompson, M.D. founded Orthopaedic Specialists in 1979, and their practice has literally grown with Las Vegas. The Orthopaedic Specialists practice is now four specialists strong and is considered a leader in the local medical community, earning many referrals
from physicians and patients alike.
Orthopaedics is the medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of the body’s musculoskeletal
system. This complex system includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves and allows one to move, work and be active. Once devoted to the care of children with spine
and limb deformities, orthopaedics now cares for patients of all ages, from newborns with club feet to young athletes equiring arthroscopic surgery to older people with arthritis.
Anyone can break a bone.
Orthopaedic surgery has evolved into sub-specialty areas including spine, hand, foot and ankle, sports medicine, pediatric orthopaedics and joint reconstruction surgery. All of Orthopaedi Specialists’ physicians are certified by the National Board of Medical Examiners and the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. Not only are all of the physicians at Orthopaedic Specialists board certified, but most have completed additional fellowship training years in various sub-specialties of orthopaedic surgery.
