Henderson, NV |
Tait ruined my life. Joint replacement. Constant pain. Infection. Repeat surgeries. Made things worse. He won't tell you about the risks of surgery or the risks and complications of joint replacement.

I am so thankful for Dr. Tait doing my hip revision and giving me my life back!! I had a failed hip replacement 4 yrs ago and Dr. Tait JUST did my hip revision. I knew the second I woke up that it was a success!!! The level of care is off the charts! I have never had a dr who showed so much care and concern for his patients. The response time is beyond fast when you call with a question/concern/problem. His staff is amazing and the knowledge Dr Tait has makes you so confident with him!

Dr. Tait is very well known and respected in the community. He is an excellent surgeon and is a very caring physician. He replaced my knee a few months ago and I have been very happy with the outcome.

I selected Dr. Tait for my total joint knee replacement in April 2013, followed by a total shoulder replacement in Oct. 2015 due to 6 separate neighbors' experiences with Dr. Tait. My outcomes for both surgeries have been fantastic. Before moving to Henderson, I was in the medical imaging surgical field in CA dealing with orthopedic MD's. With my 35 years of personal experience selling Orthopedic MD's, I can truly state that Dr. Tait is in the top 1% of the best MD's i know. He's a wise choice.

Dr. Tait preformed 3 surgeries in 5 months on me, shoulder and 2 hip replacements. I can not thank him or his team enough for the professional job and attention to detail for each one of the surgeries.
