Dr. Jeremy J. Kokkonen

Board Certified Physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation)

Dr. Kokkonen graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Science prior to attending medical school at A.T. Still University/Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri. Upon completing his internship at Valley Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, he completed his residency at UT Southwestern and Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He was trained by some of the leading physicians in his specialty Dr. Kokkonen completed further training in the field of interventional pain management at Nexus Pain Care in Provo, UT under the close guidance of Dr. Richard Rosenthal, a leader in the field of pain management and a leading member of ISIS (International Spine Intervention Society), as well as a pioneer in the use of Pulsed Radiofrequency in pain management. Dr. Kokkonen’s goals include improving quality of life and function by decreasing pain. He does this by utilizing minimally invasive, non-operative procedures for targeted pain relief. Most of the procedures done for pain relief are in the spine but he also targets large joints, soft tissue, and peripheral nerves. He uses radiofrequency technology for many of his procedures, which allows for a longer duration of pain relief compared to many of the other modalities available. Dr. Kokkonen also utilizes extensive physical therapy and other modalities to decrease pain. He is proficient in the use of nerve studies (Nerve Conduction Studies/Electromyogram) to help aid in his diagnosis of the source of pain, weakness, and sensory loss when a nerve injury is suspected. In his free time, Dr. Kokkonen enjoys spending time with his family in the outdoors. He enjoys water sports such as boating, surfing and swimming, as well as mountain sports/activities such as snowboarding, hiking, fly fishing, and camping. He is a big fan of college and professional football. He is an avid traveler and manages to visit his home state of Hawaii as well as his father’s home country of Finland on a regular basis.
