Learn About the Team

Nurse Practitioner – Dr. Joseph Yu
Originally from Southern California, Dr. Yu went to UC Berkeley for undergraduate school while majoring in electrical engineering and computer science. After having a sports injury and being impressed by his orthopaedic surgeon, he decided to pursue a medical career and received a medical degree at University of Southern California (USC) School of Medicine. His orthopaedic residency was done at Los Angeles County Hospital (also affiliated with USC) where he had to work 80 to 110 hours per week. In order to supplement his training, he did two years of fellowships. The first was at UC San Diego where he focused on minimally invasive joint replacements and cartilage restoration. He worked closely with one of the cartilage gurus of the world, Dr. William Bugbee. This was followed by specialized Sports Medicine certification at Duke University where he had the unique opportunity to provide medical care for the Duke Basketball Team. Fifteen years of school after high school was not enough so he had to attain an executive MBA at UNLV.

Currently, he volunteers at UNLV as a Team Physician for the student athletes and travels with the UNLV Football Team. He also is involved in teaching the athletic trainers and primary care sports medicine fellowship. When the NBA is town for Summer League or USA Basketball, he is makes himself available to provide medical care.

Although he provides care for most orthopedic conditions and sports injuries, and he specializes in A to Z treatment for the shoulders, hips and knees. He approaches the injury from a sports medicine perspective to try to get patients back to their sport or activity as fast as possible. Joint replacement surgery is performed minimally invasive with the goal of outpatient discharge. ACL surgery is taken seriously with the mindset that the patient will be pursuing a professional athletic career. Revisions of previous sports surgeries are welcome.
