The Idaho Back Institute at Bingham Memorial Hospital offers conservative care for pain relief as well as minimally invasive and endoscopic spinal care. Our team of world-class spine surgeons provide a comprehensive multi-step approach to cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spinal pain. They believe in exhausting all conservative means to treat a wide variety of spinal conditions of the neck and back that result in chronic pain and a diminished quality of life before suggesting surgery. In fact, 80 percent of our patients receive relief without surgery.

World-Class Specialists

The Idaho Back Institute is staffed by eastern Idaho’s premier spine surgeons. The two primary doctors are:

Our talented team of neurosurgeons have extensive expertise in the areas of nonsurgical and surgical spine surgery, and they are trained to treat a wide range of spinal injuries and constant pain. They take extra time to familiarize themselves with their patient’s medical needs and discuss treatment options that will help patients feel better and enjoy a more productive life.

Nonsurgical Treatments & Services

Our doctors use a wide variety of nonsurgical options to give patients relief from their pain, including:

  • Chiropractic Manipulation
  • Epidural Steroid Injections
  • Exercise & Physical Therapy
  • Kyphoplasties
  • Nerve Blocks
  • Physical Therapy
  • Radiofrequency Ablations
  • Selective Injections
  • Spinal Cord Stimulators
  • Spinal Strengthening
  • Vertebroplasties

Surgical Treatments & Services

As a last resort, our surgeons may recommend a surgical option. Combined, our talented team of surgeons bring a unique skillset not available anywhere else in Idaho. The Idaho Back Institute is the only place in Idaho where patients can have an endoscopic spine surgery. This is an outpatient spine surgery performed through a single incision that is only a centimeter long, the least invasive technique for any spine surgery.

Our surgeons also perform other surgeries including disc replacements—an alternative to fusion that preserves and even improves spine motion. In addition, they perform routine spine surgeries such as spinal arthroplasty, discectomies, and fusions in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spines.
