I have been a patient at UT Southwestern for over 40 years. During my tenure as Dallas County Judge, from 1978 to 1982, I had the privilege to work with the Parkland Hospital Board of Managers. I saw first hand how important the UT Southwestern facilities were to the citizens of Dallas.
Having been diagnosed with spinal stenosis by Howard Morgan, M.D., he performed spinal surgery to help relieve the back and leg pain I was having to deal with. After a time, I began to experience the pain again and had some difficulty walking and standing for long periods of time. Dr. Morgan expressed his concern that a second surgery would not prove beneficial to my case. He referred me to the Pain Management Department and Amy Phelan, M.D., who he highly recommended.
I have visited with Dr. Phelan and her staff on numerous occasions. She has been treating my pain with spinal injections and radio frequency treatments. I found Dr. Phelan very understanding of my symptoms. My condition has improved and the pain is under control. I am more comfortable and can stand longer and walk further. Both her and her staff have done a very good job on my behalf.
