Dr. James (Jim) Pappas joined the Swift Institute team in 2022; he treats people of all ages who desire to return to a more active lifestyle. He focuses his surgical practice on shoulder and knee repair and reconstruction. Thousands of Northern Nevadans are back on the slopes, at the gym, on the job, on the field, or living the active life they prefer thanks to Dr. Pappas. Such is to be expected of one of region’s most renowned orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Pappas served as a team physician for the University of Nevada for ten years. More importantly, the Reno native has served his fellow Nevadans in his hometown and outlying cities like Elko, Battle Mountain, and Winnemucca since 1993.
"I understand my patients prefer to spend as little time as possible on the sidelines, and they are ready to get back in the game. So I strive to offer each patient a healthy, personalized, balanced approach to orthopedic treatments -- from arthroscopic surgery to other innovative techniques and therapies.”
