Let's get you back into life

At the Spine Institue of Idaho, our patients come first. Every year we help thousands of people manage their pain so they can get back to doing what they love.

The right solution for you

Our focus is to provide a proper diagnosis and treatment plan for each individual we see. We believe in comprehensive care, not only surgical treatments, because developing healthier patients is at the heart of our practice.

Surgical Procedures

Our surgeons are fellowship trained and use cutting edge technology to offer a full spectrum of spine surgery. We have specialists in everything from minimally invasive procedures to complex deformity correction, and everything in between.

Pain Management

With the right pain management strategy, many patients find their issues resolved with no need for surgery. We are experts in non-surgical solutions including injection therapy, spinal cord stimulation, medication management, acupressure, manual manipulation , and Botox injection therapy.

Physical Therapy

Strengthening and stretching the muscles and ligaments that protect your spine is an important part of any treatment plan. Physiotherapy leads you through effective methods for functional restoration so you can get back into life.

I wouldn’t go to another spine Dr for anything. I like the fact that they take good care of me & they listen to me about any questions I have or if I have any concerns, they address them in the office when I am there.

What makes us different

The Spine Institute of Idaho is a single point destination. We offer everything from surgery to rehab to pain management and everything in between, all coordinated in one place by a cooperative team of specialists.

  • Specialists in minimally invasive surgery. It dramatically improves outcomes and satisfaction, so we became industry leaders in the technique.

  • Surgical and nonsurgical options. When surgery is the right option, we are the best in town. When surgery isn’t the right option, we are still the best in town.

  • Leaders in scoliosis correction. Our providers often participate and present at conferences across the nation on our work developing new corrective implants and devices.

  • On site injection suite and physical therapy. Don’t spend your time running around town from doctor to doctor, spend it getting better.

  • Leading edge imaging technology. The right diagnosis is paramount, which is why we use a sophisticated Open MRI, X-Ray, and a highly trained imaging staff.

  • Always improving. For us, learning doesn’t stop after medical school. Everyone on the team sets aside time to learn new techniques and contribute back to our fields.
