Specialties

Dr. Kenneth M Alo has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

After some research and speaking with a couple of past patients this seem like my best hope to relieve my back pain. I went into the procedure with high hopes. Of course it was expressed that nothing is guaranteed. I was hoping for at least some improvement to my problem. After the procedure I followed the post op instructions to the letter. Not only did I not notice an improvement, but my back was in many ways worse. Also note the North American Spine would not except my insurance and required full payment prior to surgery.

Informative

Dr. Alo impressed me with having a common sense attitude and getting other xrays that no Doctor had asked for vefore he proceeded. Other doctors had told me in the past, tt come back when i was in a wheelchair. Dr. Alo said that no one should have to resprt to that quality of life if they could fix the problem now. We are pn the same page.

Dr. Alo was good to me. He tried to do whatever he could to try to help me get relief. I was heartbroken when I had to leave his care to go to another doctor for further care that he could no longer provide. I have a complicated case, they tell me. I have a spinal cord injury and a shoulder injury that turned into CRPS/RSD and Causalgia.
