About Dr. Robert Cach

Dr. Robert Cach, a board-certified neurosurgeon, treats patients with neck and back pain complaints at the Idaho Neurosurgical Center, his private practice located in Idaho Falls. Opened in 1997, the Center draws on Dr. Cach’s 17 years of experience treating degenerative spinal disease, brain tumors, epilepsy, vertebral fractures, and complex pain management.

When a prospective patient comes to Dr. Robert Cach for initial examination, a staff member will take a detailed medical history and description of pain symptoms. Dr. Cach then performs a neurological exam, paying particular attention to the extent to which pain, injury, or discomfort limit a client’s normal physical activity.

Arm or leg pain may be symptomatic of a spinal injury. Degeneration of the vertebrae, or shock-absorbing discs in the neck, can cause arm pain, and similar conditions in the lumbar or lower back region can affect the legs.

Idaho Neurosurgical Center has access to every available high-tech exam for the treatment of intracranial and spinal disorders. Dr. Robert Cach may order an X-ray, MRI, CAT/CT scan, bone scan, DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) scan, discogram, or myelogram. In surgery, Dr. Cach has experience with catheters, endoscopes, fiberoptic video cameras, and other state of the art technology that enables the performance of minimally invasive procedures to treat the fascia, muscles, and ligaments of the spine. Dr. Cach also has full hospital privileges at both Mountain View Hospital and Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado, Dr. Robert Cach commenced his medical training with a Master’s in Neurophysiology, which he finished in 1987. Dr. Cach attended the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, graduating with an M.D. in 1991. Subsequently, he moved to Knoxville where he was a resident in General Surgery at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine. Dr. Robert Cach performed a second residency in Neurosurgery at the same institution, which he concluded in 1997.
