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.”
