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!!!

Rude staff. If you question them about treatment, you will get a letter discharging you. Your lucky if you can get an appointment in 4 months. Don't waste your time.

Bad staff and doctor would not use this guy he will tell you need surgery right away just so he can make his money even if you don't need it for a long while

One year ago after an accident and arriving at Spring valley I was met by Dr Nevins. It's a long story and I'm now in physical therapy. The point here is Dr Nevins was so thorough, so accommodating, his incredible bedside manner is bare none. His office runs like a fine Swiss watch. A very remarkable man, Doctor and Human Being. All that know Dr. Nevins will tell you there is no other.

Dr. Nevins was great. He was very thorough explaining my surgery and recovery and answered numerous questions. I have recommended three other friends to him and they were very happy as well.
