Dr. Timothy Dooley has joined the team of highly skilled and accomplished orthopaedic specialists at Great Basin Orthopaedics (GBO), one of Reno’s top practices dedicated to bone and joint care. Dooley is returning home to Reno, with his wife and two young sons, after completing a hand surgery fellowship at the world-renowned Christine M. Kleinert Institute in Louisville, Kentucky.
“I am thrilled to be back in my hometown working at GBO,” said Dooley. “I was born into this community, and it is a real privilege to be able to come back here to work and raise my boys in the same community.”
While he is qualified to treat all areas of the body, Dooley is especially interested in the hand and upper extremities. For Dooley, the hand offers both variety and complexity that he finds rewarding. Orthopaedic hand specialists not only treat bone injury, they also address hand-related artery, nerve and soft tissue challenges, requiring more extensive training.
After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Biology at Bowdoin College in Maine, Dooley returned to Reno to attend the University of Nevada School of Medicine, to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for his internship, and then to Albany Medical Center in New York for his residency.
He is a candidate member of American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Society for Surgery of the Hand; a member of the Nevada Orthopaedic Society, and a community adjunct faculty at the University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine.
When he’s not practicing medicine, Dooley enjoys spending time outdoors, taking advantage of everything northern Nevada has to offer. On any given day, you can find him and his family hiking, cycling, boating, skiing or golfing, or spending time with the large extended family here in Reno.
All GBO providers believe in an individualized approach to care and in educating the patient about options. For more information, visit www.greatbasinortho.com, which features doctor bios, patient resources, articles about preventive and treatment options and more.
