Humboldt General Hospital is pleased to announce that Patrick Osgood, MD,
has joined its Orthopedic Clinic team.
Dr. Osgood brings over 20 years of general, trauma and specialized care
of the body’s bones, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
As a native Nevadan, Dr. Osgood has spent the last decades perfecting his
skills in Reno, Nevada, and Truckee, California. Now, he has expanded
his practice to include Winnemucca and Humboldt General Hospital.
Dr. Osgood offers arthroplasty—or surgical reconstruction or replacement
–of knee, shoulder and hip joints. He also performs arthroscopic
surgery of the knee and shoulder; arthroscopy is a minimally invasive
surgical procedure using an endoscope that is inserted into the joint
through a small incision.
Dr. Osgood also provides fracture care as well as general orthopedic procedures
like carpal tunnel release, trigger finger release and rotator cuff repair.
Dr. Osgood is joined at the HGH Orthopedic Clinic by Dr. Ludwig Kroner
and Dr. Curtiss Mull. The clinic is open Monday through Friday, but the
doctors provide emergency orthopedic services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Humboldt General Hospital CEO Jim Parrish said Dr. Osgood is known for
his trusted and professional manner.
“Patients routinely share their positive experience in his care,” he said.
Parrish said as a smaller medical center, HGH strives to be truly patient
focused. “Staff members strive to meet patients’ needs to
ensure they are safe, comfortable and satisfied. At HGH, patients quickly
Dr. Osgood said most patients are able to return home in 24 hours or less.
Surgical patients who require hospitalization recover in brand new, state-of-the-art
single occupancy rooms.
Additionally, Parrish said HGH’s hospital infection rate is well
below the national average, so patients experience fewer complications
and heal more quickly.
For out-of-town patients, HGH has also secured special discounts at local
hotel and dining venues. Patients may call the dedicated patient care
line at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1901, for assistance.
“Patients no longer need to travel to Reno for quality orthopedics,”
said Dr. Osgood. “Our orthopedic surgeons offer 24/7 quality care.”
Humboldt General Hospital’s Orthopedic Clinic is open Monday through
Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information or to schedule an appointment,
