"I appreciate your help and continue to be beyond pleased and impressed with your office. From beginning to end everyone was so professional and helpful. You all made what was a very painful and emotionally exhausting experience so much easier to navigate. I hope to never have to use you all again, but if I do I know the process will be smooth."                                                            C. Russell, Fernley NV

Expert Surgical and Non-Surgical Spine Care and Treatment for Back and Neck Pain

The Sierra Regional Spine Institute physicians have pioneered the multidisciplinary team approach to spinal treatments, putting together a caring and professional medical group that includes nationally recognized Spinal Surgeons, Spinal Rehabilitation Specialists, Physiatrists (physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation), Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers.

You’ll also find that the physicians here believe in using conservative care including chiropractic support where indicated, as well as minimally invasive out-patient surgical treatment. For post-treatment care, you’ll be invited to participate in our HealthStyles™ program, an affordable, ongoing fitness and spinal wellness program. We’ll send you on your way to activity and health with good back care practices.
Leaders in Spinal Care, Back Health and the Latest Spinal Surgery Technology

Often, Sierra Regional Spine is referred to by the local medical community as the “Doctor’s Doctors” because over the years many physicians have come to SRSI for care of themselves or their family members. Sierra Regional Spine Institute’s surgeons are at the forefront of spine surgery technology. We have a unique reputation for being both conservative (performing surgery as the last option, not the first), as well as being leaders in advanced surgical and non-surgical spine technology.

James Rappaport, MD, founder of Sierra Regional Spine Institute  moved from Stanford University Hospital and implemented the first outpatient microsurgery spine program in Reno over 25 years ago . Our medical Campus provides access to a state-of-the-art surgical center which provides the absolute best in spinal care, safety and patient comfort.  Minimally invasive procedures like micro-discectomies performed at Quail Surgery Center continue today to be excellent options for patients needing spine surgery.  Out-patient surgery centers like Quail have proven track records of helping surgeons maintain superior outcomes while keeping infection rates far below those of in-patient hospitals.

Should surgery be required, Sierra Regional Spine Institute offers our PreHab™ program. With our PreHab™ program we'll explain what to expect. More importantly we'll show them the "Do's and Don't's" of getting around post surgery. Read more about it in our "Physical Therapy" section.

 Our minimally invasive procedures such as the X-STOP, Kyphoplasty, and microsurgery, including discectomy and microdiscectomy, are all performed at Quail Surgery Center, located on campus with Sierra Regional Spine Institute.

Our U.S.-trained physicians also perform artificial disc replacements. Our physicians believe the future of spinal health is restoration of anatomy and function through motion – using artificial discs to replace spinal fusion. The Sierra Regional Spine Institute works with an advanced, third generation disc from Spinal Motion.

U.S. Ski Team Physicians, National Leaders in Spine Surgery and Non-Surgical Spine Therapy

Dr. Kip and Dr. Rappaport have been official U.S. Ski Team physicians since the 1998 Winter Olympics in Japan. Both physicians have worked extensively with sports and skiing-related spinal and back injuries.

Sierra Regional Spine Institute surgeons are exceptional in Northern Nevada for their university affiliations. Dr. Rappaport, a Stanford University alumnus, frequently lectures nationally and internationally.

This and other university affiliations put Sierra Regional Spine Institute surgeons at the forefront of medical advances and gives them the opportunity to present their own clinical research,


Additionally, Sierra Regional Spine Institute surgeons  and physiatrists are volunteer clinical professors for the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Family Practice Program as well as the University's Sports Medicine Fellowship program.

The doctors at Sierra Regional Spine Institute bring the best of the nation’s surgical and non-surgical advances to the Northern Nevada Community.  Their skills and expertise also draw patients from Northern California, Utah, and beyond.
