Hilary Malcarney, M.D.

Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon

Fellowship Trained in Sports Medicine & Shoulder Surgery

Dr. Hilary Malcarney focuses on providing high-quality patient care and specializes in shoulder reconstruction, including arthroplasty and arthroscopy. Her interest in orthopedics specifically sports medicine, stems from her experiences on the playing field. She enjoys teamwork; her role has evolved from an athlete on a team to a physician leading and working alongside a team. In addition, Dr. Malcarney works closely with the University of Nevada, Reno student-athletes as an orthopedic consultant.

"I continue to enjoy the area's outdoor activities, and the views of the Sierras from the ski slopes and hiking trails always remind me why I decided to move to this part of the country...
