Welcome to Nevada Spine Clinic

The Nevada Spine Clinic is a state of the art facility which provides comprehensive care to patients with neck and back disorders. Our spine-focused multi-disciplinary team is experienced in both conservative and surgical treatments of the spine as well as cutting edge research and technological advances. The Nevada Spine Clinic offers treatment protocols which integrate advanced surgical techniques, physical therapy, pain management and diagnostic imaging.

Focusing exclusively on the spine, we offer non-surgical, minimally invasive and advanced surgical techniques as solutions to spinal pathology, including artificial disc replacement as an alternative to spinal fusion.
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality patient care, precision surgical techniques and the academic advancement of spine care treatment.

Our spine-focused multi-disciplinary team is committed to educating patients about their medical condition and treatment options, enabling them to make decisions regarding the course of treatment that is right for their individual situation.

Our goal

It is our goal to ensure that patients are comfortable and confident in the choices that they make regarding their spine care.

What we do

I want to take all the pain that I feel and celebrate and turn it around.

Spine Surgery

  • Spinal motion occurs via several articulations occurring the intervertebral disc, and the paired facet joints. The disc has a central compartment that is made up of 70-90% water, proteoglycans, and collagen. The purpose is to absorb axial loading and to disburse the forces radially. The vertebral endplates are about 1 mm thick and comprised of

Interventional Spine

  • Q: What is an epidural steroid injection? A: An epidural steroid injection is a procedure designed to deliver a corticosteroid preparation into the immediate vicinity of a cervical or lumbar spinal nerve and its roots by way of the intervertebral foramen in which the target nerve lies. It is used as a treatment for the symptoms

  • Q: What are medial branch blocks? A: A procedure designed to block the sensory nerves above and below a spinal facet joint. Blocking these nerves (called the Medial Branch Nerves) effectively blocks the facet joints. The facet joints are articulations of the lower articular process of the posterior elements of a vertebra with the upper

  • The sacroiliac joint is a synovial joint with a fibrous capsule. Pain can come from nerves in the joint capsule and in the posterior ligaments. Pain typically occurs below L5 and at the posterior superior iliac spine. It can be referred to the hip, groin, thigh, and less commonly down to the knee. The gold

  • The facet joints are the articulations between the lower and upper vertebra in the posterior area of the spine. These joints are synovial type joints, which are lined by hyaline cartilage. Pain from these joints is suggested by painful axial movement, age, arthritis, whiplash injury mechanisms and can only be diagnosed definitively by medial branch

Comprehensive Pain Management

  • EMG and Nerve conduction studies are to help diagnose nerve and muscle conditions such as: Carpal tunnel syndrome, Neuropathy, Myopathy, and Radiculopathy resulting from nerve root injury or compression. It is a study that shows the nerve’s actual physiologic functioning as opposed to only the anatomy which would be shown by an MRI or another imaging

  • Muscle pain is very common after injuries including whiplash, and after sprains and strain injuries. Muscles can spasm around painful arthritic joints and oftentimes can spasm due to irritated or “pinched” nerves. It is usually described as a burning tightness that limits range of motion and is tender to the touch. Oftentimes painful bands or

  • During the course of strenuous activity, work, sports, or performances, many people may damage muscle or skeletal systems. In one study, about 25% of 6300 adults received a musculoskeletal injury of some sort within 12 months‚Äîof which 83% were activity-related. These may also include joint or ligament injuries as well. Other conditions which may cause

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Here are some of the spine conditions we treat

  • What is spinal stenosis?

    The spinal cord is protected by bones of the spine, called the vertebrae. Between each vertebra is a jelly like disc that acts as a cushion between the bones. These discs are made up of two portions. The inner part, the nucleus pulposus, is made up mostly of water and gives the disc a spongy,Read more →

  • The costs of pain…

    It is estimated that 100 million Americans live with chronic pain every day. This is more than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. The total annual cost of health care due to pain ranges from $560-$635 billion in the United States, which combines the medical costs of pain care and the economic costs related toRead more →

  • Pain is a symptom

    So what does a Pain Physician really do? Of course our job is to manage pain, but there are a few fundamental understandings that we must convey to our patients. For one, our purpose is to diagnose, treat, and manage the underlying causes of pain, not just the pain itself and these causes can beRead more →
