In other recent news, SpineNevada is excited about being one of the first in the country to offer Vertebral Motion Analysis (VMA). The advanced spine motion imaging offered by VMA provides more data than ever before by taking hundreds of x-ray type pictures of the spine. VMA provides more accurate motion measurements to help surgeons in diagnosing spine conditions and facilitates improved confidence in choosing the best approach to achieve ultimate relief of cervical or lumbar back pain. In addition to VMA, SpineNevada’s InMotion Diagnostics includes Open InMotion MRI (the weight-bearing and tiltable Esaote Brio), Digital X-rays and full body scoliosis imaging. The SpineNevada Radiology department is led by Dr. Stefan Franciosa, a dual board-certified Diagnostic and Interventional Radiologist. “With our comprehensive center, we are redefining spine care by offering more services — including diagnostics, radiology, physical therapy, injection therapy — under one roof. This saves patients time and speeds feedback to referring primary care providers,” Dr. Lynch explained.
With office locations in Reno, Sparks and Carson City, SpineNevada is a regional center of excellence offering a comprehensive approach to spine care. The center includes fellowship-trained neurological surgeons; spine specialists board-certified in physical medicine, and radiology; and specialty-trained physical therapists, physical therapy clinics and InMotion Diagnostics. These spine experts take a conservative first approach and combine their expertise to develop the most appropriate treatment for each individual patient.
Founded by Dr. Lynch in 2004, SpineNevada’s goal is to be recognized as a regional spine center of excellence that demonstrates innovation in nonsurgical and surgical spine care, and then documents its superior care with clinical outcomes. The center’s mission is to help its patients return to active lives, through compassionate, evidence-based spine care, including non-surgical treatment options and the most technologically advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques.
