Holman Chan, MD

Dr. Holman Chan, MD was trained in both Canada and the United States. He is board-certified and specializes in both 'Foot & Ankle' and 'Orthopedic Trauma.' This includes joint reconstruction/replacement (ankle, knee, hip, elbow, and shoulder) and musculoskeletal deformity correction. In 2013, he joined Nevada Orthopedic and Spine Center, an orthopedic multi-subspecialty group that services both Las Vegas and Henderson.

Dr. Chan completed his Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, NY. He completed his Orthopedic Traumatology Fellowship with the University of Rochester at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY.

Dr. Chan's elective Foot & Ankle practice focuses on all areas, including trauma, overuse syndromes, sports tendinous and ligamentous injuries, foot deformities, and arthritis. His initial approach is always conservative, employing nonsurgical treatment including physical therapy, orthotics and bracing, shoe wear change, and even injections. He is conscientious of each individual's social and financial situation when deciding treatment together.

Dr. Chan's Orthopedic Trauma practice is primarily coverage of many of the Primary Care Physician offices, Urgent Care Centers, and Hospital Emergency Departments in Las Vegas and Henderson. This includes orthopedic trauma involving the upper and lower extremities, pelvis, and acetabulum. However, Dr. Chan receives many referrals for post-traumatic and congenital deformities and post-traumatic arthritis. Naturally, he has a special interest in deformity correction and joint reconstruction/replacement.

Dr. Chan's advanced subspecialty training in foot and ankle arthroscopy, total ankle replacement, deformity correction, and fracture care has enabled him to provide state-of-the-art and minimally-invasive care for his patients.
