Dr. Kenneth Aló is board certified and is a member of 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, and the American Pain Society.  Dr. Aló specializes in the interventional management of pain and his goal is to systematically intervene and break the pain cycle accurately and promptly, so that rehabilitative techniques can begin the reconditioning process. A private practice physician, Dr. Aló has authored over fifty abstracts and publications and has presented both nationally and internationally.  

Description of Research

Dr. Aló is an anesthesiologist practicing pain management, nationally recognized for his expertise in his field. He is currently collaborating with Methodist researchers on the innovative concept that spinal cord stimulation leads to favorable neurohormonal changes that may improve the clinical outcome for patients with advanced heart failure.
