Primary Care Sports Medicine

Dr. Jessica Zarndt is a board-certified and fellowship-trained primary care sports medicine specialist. She is available to see patients at our Central, Southwest, West Central, and Henderson offices, where she specializes in maximizing nonoperative approaches to sports injuries and orthopaedic concerns. Her approach to medicine is personal and academic, with the goal to educate her patients and keep them active, healthy, and performing.
Dr. Zarndt cares for patients with a wide variety of injuries and concerns, including:

  • Joint pain and injuries: hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, back, hip, knee, ankle, and foot
  • Tendon pain and injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Stress fractures and nonoperative fractures

She uses minimally invasive procedures, such as:

  • Ultrasound-guided joint injections
  • Hyaluronic acid injections and other therapeutic injections for tendon and joint injuries
  • Ultrasound-guided needle barbotage for calcific tendinosis (calcium deposits within a tendon)

Dr. Zarndt recently returned to Las Vegas via Los Angeles, California, from Austin, Texas. She has received many accolades in her esteemed roles of Assistant Team Physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers and UCLA Athletics, Head Primary Care Team Physician for the UCLA Women’s Basketball Team, and as the Associate Team Physician for the University of Texas Longhorns—Hook ‘em! In these roles, she collaborated with athletic departments and teams to advance the care of student and professional athletes—including female athlete care, concussions, mental health, preventive care, emergency sideline medical coverage, performance, and fueling concerns. She has also served as a team physician for the Allegiant Air USA Cycling Team and as a ringside physician for USA Boxing. The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine recognized Dr. Zarndt for her research in medical care provided at endurance events, and she was named one of the Top 40 under 40 Las Vegas professionals by VEGAS INC magazine.
Her academic and careful approach to patient care comes from her decade-plus long teaching career. She served as chief resident during her residency and as assistant professor and full-time teaching faculty for both the UCLA Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship and Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. She is currently appointed as adjunct assistant professor at Touro University Nevada and continues to teach medical students and resident physicians. 
As a decorated former Cheyenne High School and second-generation UNLV athlete and published author in female athlete concerns, she is passionate and highly experienced in providing specialty care for female athletes of all ages. She is a former collegiate 10,000-meter conference champion and NCAA Woman of the Year for the state of Nevada. Today, you can catch her running and cycling the roads and trails around Southern Nevada.
