My goal as a Physiatrist is to help patients understand the problem which is causing their pain and give them techniques to overcome and manage the pain. This will help them reach their highest level of function.
Dr. Robert (Rocky) J. Rentfro III is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He completed his Physiatry residency at National Rehabilitation Hospital/ Georgetown University in 2009. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Spine intervention at Florida Spine Institute in Clearwater Florida in 2010. He also has completed a residency in Family Practice Medicine.
Dr. Rentfro earned a Master of Physical Therapy degree at Loma Linda University in 1996 and worked as a physical therapist here in Nebraska as well as in California. Dr. Rentfro enjoyed his work as a physical therapist but wanted to expand his knowledge and expertise and thus obtained his medical degree.
Dr. Rentfro has been trained in fluoroscopic guided lumbar and cervical injections to help patients with acute and chronic spine pain. He also is trained in performing electromyography and nerve conduction studies as well as ultrasound guided joint injections.
Dr. Rentfro enjoys spending time with his family. They enjoy waterskiing and fishing in the Summer.
