Last week, Tampa-based Bonati Spine Institute opened a location in Las Vegas, according to a Las Vegas Review-Journal report.
Las Vegas Heals CEO Doug Geinzer called the opening a "milestone" for Las Vegas' medical tourism industry. Alfred Bonati, MD, founded Bonati Spine Institute and opened the new location at an event that included around 200 people.
Dr. Bonati plans to train surgeons at the Florida location and send them to work at the Las Vegas location, as he won't pursue a Nevada medical license.
Dr. Bonati developed a minimally invasive spine treatment performed at his outpatient surgery centers. However, according to the report, the Florida Department of Health website lists 21 actions against Dr. Bonati.
