Sierra Surgery is a specialty surgical hospital located on the Carson Tahoe Health Medical Campus in north Carson City, Nevada.

  • Gynecology (GYN)
  • Orthopedics

The smaller setting of six operating rooms and 15 inpatient rooms at Sierra ensures that every patient receives the excellence in surgical care and warm, personalized service that Sierra Surgery is known for. Each inpatient spends their recovery time in a comfortable, quiet and private room while receiving customized meals from our Personal Chef. The nursing staff is highly-trained and attentive with the majority of RN’s holding specialty certifications. You, the patient, are always the first priority.

A full-service radiology department and laboratory supports the medical services and offers MRI, CT, Ultrasound, X-ray, Breast Imaging, DEXA, as well as other exams. The culture of warm, personalized care continues with our Radiology Staff.

Sierra Surgery is also home to the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. Dr. Antoinette Cortese, Fellowship-trained in Breast Imaging, is the Medical Director. She is the only physician in Northern Nevada that has received this extensive training in Breast Imaging. Patients entering into the Breast Imaging Center often comment on how comforted they feel just sitting in the warm, cozy waiting room and being cared for by Dr. Cortese’s experienced staff.
