What is the Robotic Spine Institute?
The Future of Spinal Surgery
Spine care and the treatment of spinal disorders is amidst unprecedented change. As we transition from traditional to advanced treatments, neurological and orthopedic spine surgeons must utilize technology that make the most minimally invasive procedures available to patients with back pain and neck pain considering surgery.
World renowned orthopedic surgeon and founder of The Robotic Spine Institute of Las Vegas, Kornelis Poelstra has helped develop some of the most impactful robotic technology in the world. Poelstra draws from experience and data to constantly improve surgical techniques with only one motive in mind, the best possible patient outcomes.
When considering an orthopedic spine surgeon in Las Vegas NV, a patient must be informed about the technology available to make sure that their spinal surgery is done with the safest and most effective techniques. In this new era, a patient is best able to manage their back or neck pain and spine problems by considering conservative treatment. If those treatments fail, minimally invasive robotically assisted spine surgery is the safest option as it allows for shorter recovery time and minimal blood loss in comparison to traditional techniques. With the data shown by the spine institute in Las Vegas Nevada, it has been proven that the health benefits of robotically assisted spine surgery significantly outweigh the methods of traditional treatment. This phenomenon has raised the bar for spine surgery providers in Las Vegas Nevada and across the globe.”

Kornelis Poelstra, MD PhD
Orthopedic and Neurological Spine Surgeon
Since the start of my career as a board certified Surgeon in 2006, my passion and focus has always been the relationship I develop with my patients. Every solution for a spine problem or back pain must be based on your lifestyle and your goals. My promise is to genuinely understand your issue and take action to get you back to being pain free. I am a firm believer in conservative treatment without surgery but sometimes alternatives have to be considered. If I do recommend spine surgery, I focus on the most minimally invasive techniques utilizing state of the art technology, right in the hub of innovation in Las Vegas NV.
You are not just another patient to us. Every person has unique challenges that prevent them from a desired lifestyle or feeling they had prior to their spine issue.
At the Robotic Spine Institute of Las Vegas, it is our promise to understand your history and your goals rather than just your pain. The entire picture is more important to us than just the specific problem.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Outstanding doctor!!!! Went to my first visit and wow he was absolutely awesome. He thoroughly explained to me everything about my case and I knew the first time when I left his office I was very confident he was the right surgeon.Sandra C.
Just had a complex cervical spine surgery performed by Dr. Poelstra. My osteoporosis certainly made the surgery more of a challenge. Dr. Poelstra devoted a lot of time and attention to my particular problems before coming up with a solution. Am also thrilled to report not only did the surgery go well, but I have experienced zero pain and am still pain free, 3 weeks post-surgery.Wilma K.
Talk about having confidence in my surgeon and the PA! I did not even meet my specialists until right before my surgery ! I had read about Dr. Poelstra online and had every bit of confidence in him. It is not very often you meet a doctor who is very knowledgeable, explains what he is going to do and what he had to do, but he was truly concerned about me.Johnathan H.
