WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO ALLIANCE SPINE AND PAIN CENTERS?

I was suffering from low back and leg pain.

TELL US YOUR ENTIRE STORY WITH ALLIANCE, FROM START TO FINISH. WHAT ISSUES DID YOU NEED TO RESOLVE? HOW WERE THEY ADDRESSED?

I have seen Dr. Pallavi Gupta at Alliance’s Dallas location for many years. She has helped me address different pain management issues I have faced over this time. To further address my pain symptoms, Dr. Gupta recommended a spinal cord stimulator. I elected to proceed with this treatment option, and it was life-changing! I got it almost two years ago, and it is still giving me at least 80% relief in my pain symptoms. I am now able to do the outdoor activities that I enjoy such as hunting and fishing.

TELL US ABOUT THE ALLIANCE PHYSICIAN YOU WORKED WITH.

Dr. Gupta truly cares for her patients and it shows! I have been extremely pleased with the care I have received from her over the years. Without Dr. Gupta, I would not be where I am today.

HOW ARE YOU DOING NOW?

The improvement in my day-to-day functions has exceeded all of my expectations.
