Doctors from Sierra Regional Spine Institute are looking to spread awareness regarding the availability of their treatment offerings at their Elko, NV clinic. A few doctors from the practice make regular visits to the rural area to perform consults and if necessary, perform surgeries, or other procedures to help with pain management.

Sierra Regional Spine Institute is looking to increase awareness of the availability of spine care and procedures in the rural area of Elko, NV. Three doctors from the practice travel to the area and offer microsurgeries as well as pain management treatments for the people who work in Northern Nevada. The availability of these treatments benefits those who work in and employ people in the mines in Northern Nevada.

Dr. Kip, Dr. Rappaport, and Dr. Berry all travel to Elko periodically – once or twice a month – and offer their treatments at Elko Spine and Rehabilitation, which is located at 475 8th Street, Elko, NV. The doctors perform in-patient and out-patient surgical procedures and offer treatments for pain management.

The doctors travel to Elko because there are a growing number of people affected by lower back pain. The mining industry continues to expand bringing in more and more people to the area, creating a great need for specialists. Ordinarily, the patients would have to travel four hours to get treatment for lower back pain. The availability of the treatments in Elko saves expenses for Worker’s Compensation, it provides greater convenience to the patient, and allows the existing practices to improve their services.

“Without our doctors traveling there, patients would have to drive about four hours to get treatment,” said Sierra Regional Spine Institute Practice Administrator Penny Forbes. “Employers benefit because the patients are only off work for about an hour versus the entire day, and the patients benefit because it saves their vacation or sick time.”

Sierra Regional Spine Institute accepts regular insurance as well as Worker’s Compensation insurance. Appointments for treatments in Elko from the Sierra Regional Spine Institute can be scheduled by calling the Reno office.
