Patient Values the Personalized Care at Alliance

William Alan Truesdale’s Story 

When William Alan Truesdale was experiencing chronic pain in his back, neck, hip, and shoulder, he entrusted his health three years ago with Dr. Preetesh Patel at Alliance Spine and Pain Centers. The onset of his pain had occurred gradually over time.  Mr. Truesdale decided to undergo a variety of procedures under Dr. Patel’s care, including medial branch blocks and radiofrequency ablations in both his back and neck, as well as hip injections. The treatments and Dr. Patel’s care have improved this patient’s quality of life. Mr. Truesdale shares: 

“At my rather advanced age, I have dealt with multiple scores of physicians. Doctor Patel is at the very top of that very long list, insofar as my respect, admiration, appreciation, and complete professional trust are concerned. Beyond that, he’s a delight to deal with on a personal level.

 By any measure, he is an outstanding medical professional. As well, his “bedside manner” and the conspicuous degree to which he truly cares for the welfare of his patients are extraordinary. One readily senses that his caring for his patients is deeply personal, not simply professional or an aspect of the routine “doctor-patient relationship”.

I feel that, with him, I am in the very best medical care available anywhere and that one could imagine.”

Dr. David Rosenfeld of Alliance Spine and Pain Centers Teaches Course in Groundbreaking DRG Procedure

Alliance Spine and Pain Centers remains at the forefront of pain management by demonstrating the latest in best practices. Dr. David Rosenfeld recently did just that while teaching a course in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) therapy at the Medical Education and Research Institute in Memphis, Tenn.

Teaching the class alongside Dr. Rosenfeld was noted Alabama-based physician Dr. Michael Cosgrove. The pair demonstrated the placement of the Proclaim™ DRG Neurostimulator System in the lumbar and sacral spine of a cadaver. 

Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) therapy is a non-opioid therapy designed to manage difficult-to-treat chronic pain in specific areas of the lower body, such as the foot, knee, or groin. Pain in those areas is sometimes related to a cluster of nerves called the dorsal root ganglia. The Proclaim™ DRG Neurostimulator System can provide proven therapy to aid in treatment of chronic pain in those areas.

A total of 12 physicians from around the country attended the course, including Dr. Preetesh Patel of Alliance Spine and Pain Centers. 

“Having the opportunity to share groundbreaking therapies and procedures with my colleagues is a true honor and privilege,” says Dr. Rosenfeld. “It’s part of Alliance Spine and Pain Centers’ commitment to both our patients and the field.”
