Dr. Nevins is a gift- It’s been 6 months since my hip replacement surgery. For those who are on the fence, if he says get the surgery, get it. This post in many months overdue. In the past 6 months, I have enjoyed hikes in the Sierras, went on a 7-day long-range fishing trip, travelled abroad on business for 5-weeks, can sleep without waking in pain, can climb stairs, I can turn right! The pain in my knees and back have diminished, I’m guessing I was compensating for my hip pain to other areas. I no longer carry Aleve, Advil, aspirin, or CBD’s. The only mistake I made was not having my surgery sooner. The metal detector goes off in the airports, and I have to take an antibiotic before seeing the dentist; the two post-surgery inconveniences. Thank you, Doctor Nevins!- If he’s reading this he’s probably thinking, “please call me Russell.”

Did a total knee replacement...had instability from day one went in 4 times always never did examination of my knee just looked horrified at the obvious swelling...kept telling me to wait longer..at one year his replacement surgeon (he left the practice) in 5 mins showed me what was wrong with my knee he very easily moved the femur and tibia back and forth by a couple inches!! Failed and painful knee replacement...I had been laughed at and sent off four times and made to feel like a whiner!! Scared to do it all over again but it feels like I am walking on a broken leg....also dont trust surgeons anymore..horrible dilemma...

I needed my hip replaced and I went to Dr. Nevins, he was great, the staff was great and I was walking and returned to work two weeks later. Nothing but good stuff to say about him and his staff.

Professional, caring and to the point in treating me for my aching knee. Talked about my options and a feasible path forward to resolving my pain issues. I would recommend Dr. Nivens in a heartbeat to my associates, friends and family members. My hope is that with the treatment I received today I will not have to visit the doctor anytime soon, however with that being said, if I need to revisit Dr. Nevins again I know I would be in good hands, thank you.

Dr Nevins is at Desert Orthopedic Center I just wanted to share my experience with everyone that may be in the same position. I called to make an appointment with Dr Nevins and was told he is no longer there. I was scheduled with another doctor...not the best experience. I recently found out Dr Nevins is at a new office. I found him at Desert Orthopedic Center. I'm so happy I found my favorite doctor!

Dr Nevins provides excellent care, is compassionate and caring. He us an excellent surgeon. Has replaced both of my husband's knees, and my hip with excellent outcomes. He is honest, explains things in terms that are easily understood and never pushes surgery. I highly recommend him!

Wow, no more hip pain! I was very hesitant to have a hip replacement...I'm sorry I didn't do it sooner. Anyone who has been putting off a hip replacement...Go see Dr Nevins. Dr Nevins, his staff, and the hospital staff were amazing. I was walking up and down the halls of the hospital the day after my surgery. I went home 2 days later and was back at work 2 weeks after my surgery. My family and friends can't believe I look so good after my hip was replaced. Thank you Dr Nevins

What a jerk. Tried to get an appointment best they could do was a month out. Then one week before the appointment it was cancelled and told it would be more than a month for his next opening. I started to complain and the office clerk that called to cancel the appointment could care less that I was hurting and just hung up. If that is the way he is no way I would let him put me to sleep and begin to cut on me. Opp I forgot its Tee time tell him to come back later.

Best orthopedic surgeon in Las Vegas!! Had total hip replacement. Walking all the way down hospital hall day after surgery with a walker, released next day. 6 days post op, using just a cane. 14 days after surgery, staples out, main scar looks great. Walking without any assistance, resumed driving short distances and off all pain meds. 16 days post op, walking longer distances with just a slight limp and returned to work without restrictions. All swelling gone, no longer icing, no pain.

Went to this Dr.,I did all he req. re: pre-op which was hundreds of $. The surgery was scheduled then they changed it, I was not told this & this did not allow me to be off blood thinners for the required stated time. I have a heart condition, this is important. I was required to sign several forms stating the Dr. explained to me the risks, ect. I read the forms when home as I was hurried to sign. He did not discuss any of this with me. I guess that pitt in my stomach was for a reason.

I had a full hip replacement ten months ago; Dr. Nevins was my surgeon. Since then, I have lost weight, gained muscle, and am no longer in pain! Dr. Nevins gave me a few different options of things I could try instead of surgery, and though none of them had long lasting effects, he never pushed for me to go under the knife until I was ready. My only regret is that I didn't have the surgery two years earlier!!!
