Click below to read more about our surgical specialties.

ENT, or otolaryngology, is a medical specialty focused on the ears, nose, and throat. Otolaryngologists, often called ear, nose, and throat doctors, or ENTs, are trained in both non- surgical and surgical options for treating conditions of the ear, nose, and throat.

Elko CHC’s ENT providers offer outpatient surgical treatments for patients of all ages.

Endoscopy is a non-surgical procedure in which a doctor inserts a camera and light into an orifice of the body on the end of a long, flexible tube, allowing them to examine the interior of the body in a minimally-invasive process. Colonoscopy, an endoscopic procedure, is performed through the rectum, and allows for the examination of the rectum, large intestine, and colon.

Colonoscopy is an important tool in the prevention and early diagnosis of colorectal cancer, particularly in adults 50 years and older. Screening colonoscopies are preventative health measures and are recommended even when a patient has not had any abnormal symptoms or test results as part of maintaining good health. Elko CHC provides preventative and diagnostic colonoscopic services, helping you keep on top of your health. Your doctor will tell you when it is recommended that you receive one of these procedures.

General surgery practitioners are experts on the digestive system, the contents of the abdomen, including liver, pancreas, and gallbladder, the skin and soft tissues, and the endocrine system. They are experienced in surgical critical care, trauma, and surgical treatment of cancer. Gastroenterology specialists are often trained general surgeons, with the focus on their studies on the contents of the abdomen and the function of the digestive system.

Elko CHC’s general surgery practitioners are specialized in bariatric surgery, minimally invasive surgery, surgical oncology, colorectal surgery, and surgery of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tracts.

Orthopedics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the care of the musculoskeletal system. This system consists of muscles, bones, joins, ligaments, and tendons. Orthopedists use surgical and non-surgical approaches to treat musculoskeletal issues such as sports injuries, joint pain, and back problems.

Elko CHC’s orthopedic surgeons use arthroscopy to look inside and treat joints, particularly the shoulder and knee. For arthritis, conditions of torn cartilage or muscles, inflammation, and some fractures, arthroscopy can be helpful for restoring function and allowing patients to return to normal activities.

Ophthalmology is the study of medical and surgical eye care. At Elko Community Health Center, we provide surgical interventions to treat cataracts of the eye. A cataract is a condition in which the lens of the eye becomes clouded, usually as a normal result of aging. When the clouding becomes severe enough to impair normal activity, such as reading or driving at night, corrective surgery may be recommended. This surgery will replace the clouded lens with a clear, artificial lens, restoring function of the eye.

Most children’s dental health care can be performed in a dental clinic, but for surgical procedures, Elko Community Health Center provides a safe and experienced setting for your child’s oral surgery. Children may need dental surgery to correct tooth decay, treat cases of infection through a root canal or tooth extraction, or because of severe impact to the tooth from sports or play.

Podiatry is the field of medicine related to conditions of the foot and ankle. Elko CHC’s expert surgical podiatrists can provide relief for many conditions, such as structural issues of the foot, bunions and hammertoes, bone spurs, nerve problems, skin and nail conditions, arthritis not responding to other treatment options, and trauma injuries like fractures or dislocations.

Catheterization Laboratory (Cath Lab)

Catheterization Laboratory (Cath Lab)

A catheterization laboratory, commonly referred to as a cath lab, is an examination room outfitted with diagnostic imaging equipment used to visualize the arteries and chambers of the heart. Catheterization can be used to diagnose and treat abnormalities of the heart for peripheral vascular procedures, which treat arteries in areas other than the heart.

Elko CHC’s state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization lab/procedure room provides elective diagnostic and interventional catheterization procedures. We also offer services for pacemakers and defibrillators.

Biopsy/Pathology

Biopsy / Pathology

Elko Community Health Center offers a wide variety of surgical biopsies. Biopsies are most often done to either confirm or rule out a suspicion of cancer, but can diagnose other conditions including inflammatory disorders, infections, and immune disorders. At Elko CHC, we perform both skin biopsies (including shave, punch, and excisional or incisional biopsies) and more invasive biopsy procedures (including needle, endoscopic or laparoscopic, open excisional or incisional, and perioperative biopsies). All biopsies are performed by state-of-the-art medical sampling equipment.

Following your procedure, the biopsy specimen will be sent to our 5-Star Anatomic and Clinical Pathologist, Dr. George Mardini, for analysis. Dr. Mardini is affiliated with Great Basin Pathology, located at 1250 Lamoille Highway Suite 311, Elko NV 89801. After the final report is compiled, it will be sent to your ordering and performing physician who will follow up with you on the results.
