North American Spine Welcomes Kenneth Alo, M.D. to Physician Group
Date:9/13/2010

HOUSTON, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- North American Spine is pleased to announce that Kenneth Alo, M.D. has joined to help further the advancement of minimally invasive pain treatment techniques used to both diagnose and treat inter-vertebral lumbar discs, spinal stenosis and many other causes of back pain.  North American Spine's physicians treat chronic pain of the spine using the latest technology and a unique procedure called the AccuraScope™. North American Spine's trained physicians are the only doctors performing the AccuraScope™ procedure in Dallas/Fort Worth and now the Houston area.

Dr. Alo graduated from Texas A&M University College of Medicine and completed his General Surgery Internship, Anesthesiology Residency, and Interventional Pain Fellowship at The Methodist Hospital, and Baylor College of Medicine Affiliated Hospitals in the Texas Medical Center.  He is board certified and has been active in supporting the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the American Neuromodulation Society, the National Pain Foundation, the International Neuromodulation Society, The International Association for the Study of Pain, The American Pain Foundation, and the American Pain Society in various roles.

"North American Spine is excited to launch our services into the Houston market with an experienced expert like  Ken Alo at the helm," said Christopher Lloyd, CEO of North American Spine.  "Dr. Alo is world renowned in the development and application of advanced interventional pain techniques and is known for his thought-leadership, clinical expertise and research."

Dr. Alo is specially trained on the AccuraScope™ procedure which allows physicians to examine the inside of the spinal canal and the discs of the lower back to identify, diagnose and treat any tears, ruptures, herniations, bulges or other abnormalities -- many of which may be undetected or mis-identified by MRIs.  Dr. Alo maintains progressive diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms by continuously studying, teaching, writing and participating in the latest clinical research.  His goal is to systematically intervene and break a patient's pain cycle accurately and promptly, so that rehabilitative techniques can begin the reconditioning process. Applying North American Spine's minimally invasive spine techniques to this approach represents a logical step in the conservative course of treatments Dr. Alo has championed in his own practice for decades.

"I am excited about joining a world class organization with the singular focus of delivering compassionate, state-of-the-art care for those with life altering suffering," said Dr. Alo, physician with North American Spine. "We are expanding today's science with tomorrow's technology."

North American Spine currently operates at Forest Park Medical Center in Dallas, Texas and University General Hospital in Houston, Texas. North American Spine plans to expand its elite group of hand-selected specialists in key locations nationwide, including the recently-opened Houston location, Southern California and New Jersey, with expansion to select markets internationally also under way.
