Specialties

Dr. Peter L Althausen has the following 2 specialties

  • Trauma Surgery

    Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
    Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

Thank the stars above Dr, Althausen was on duty.!

While Burning Man I feel off a second story platform and broke'right femur at the neck where it attaches to the hip. I was airlifted to Reno and was brought to Renown Memorial. I was there literally with and feeling scared and quite vulnerable. while in pre-op Dr. Althausen came in with a big smile and a whole lot of energy that was very positive and uplifting. Cracking a joke and which made me feel extremely at ease. My surgery was a success outfitting me with a rod that begins miss thigh.,going through the marrow canal to the head of my femur, a lag screw power perpendicular to the rod helping to support my hip and a pin to secure the other end of the roof. He did this by cutting 3 strategic spots on the side of my pet right thigh only 1,5 inches long to do this work......Amazing! I was on my feet a few hours later with the assistance of a walker and walked down the hall back by the encouragement of the doctor. Telling me to put a much weight on the leg that I could bear. Incredible! After I have had two follow up this far and Dr, still impresses me with his positive energy and his willingness to spend the time answering questions and giving insight and encouragement. He asked me to do a final follow up in6-8weeks because he wants to make sure use perfect. I am very impressed with Dr. Althausen and highly recommend him if you're in need of an orthopedic surgeon!

Competent, Engaged

Dr. Althausen is very good both in technical quality and bedside manner. He explains diagnoses and treatment clearly and at a level appropriate for the patient's understanding. He is caring and takes the time to answer questions, even those which may be of a generalized nature not directly related to the condition treated. I highly recommend him.
