Our goal is to get you pain free

Living with pain day in and day out can change your quality of life. You compromise, give up and miss out, but where can you turn when you’ve had enough?

At Rural Spine and Wyoming Spine Institute in Rock Springs, we understand how pain or the loss of spinal function can drastically impact your quality of life. Our team has the focused expertise to help you return to the activities you love. Rural Spine also offers services for patients in Holdrege and Sidney, NE.

Back pain is the second most common reason to visit a doctor, surpassed only by the common cold. It affects about half of the U.S. population every year, including an average 600,000 people who will have back surgery. Luckily, with advances in surgical technology, more and more people are able to get the care they need and achieve a quick recovery.

About 80% of the population will experience chronic back pain at some point in their lives.

With rising healthcare costs, it is important to choose your physician wisely and get it right the first time. At Rural Spine and Wyoming Spine Institute in Rock Springs, we treat the problem, not just the symptoms. We take a compassionate and comprehensive approach to your personal treatment plan.

With our team of physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists, nursing staff and the Yampa Valley Medical Center, Dr. Fabian and his team at Rock Springs Spine Institute offer state-of-the-art techniques, both conservative and surgical to successfully treat your chronic back pain.
