Nearly 10 years of military service took a toll on Gerardo’s body. The Army veteran and dad of 3 young children suffered from chronic pain and difficulty sleeping. Previously an active person who enjoyed running, the pain limited his ability to do much of anything. “It really destroyed me emotionally and physically,” he said.
Before Nevro HFX, Gerardo tried injections, physical therapy and medications to manage his pain. He even tried a traditional spinal cord stimulator, but it was not a good solution because of the uncomfortable buzzing and tingling it caused in his legs. Given this experience, he was skeptical about trying HFX.
“I’m happy to share that I was wrong. A few days into trying HFX I was sleeping better and had 90% pain relief,” he says. “I thought, wow, this device is working, and I’m not feeling the vibrations!”
Dr. Mayank Gupta performed his implant procedure in December 2021, and since then Gerardo is back to being an active dad. Thanks to HFX, he is loving life again. “My kids are thrilled that I can play with them now! If you’re someone who has been seeking relief, give HFX a try. It may change your life.”

After my back surgery I was not getting the pain management needed at the hospital until Dr Dalal was called in. Under her care I was able to finally gain relief and was able to return home. Our follow ups I felt heard by her. Her follow through on treatment plan and communication are excellent.

From Daniel Wright: My experience with Kansas Pain Management and the spinal cord stimulator has been fantastic. I am able to do things that I was not able to do before. It has allowed me to take care of my grandchildren and be more involved in their lives.

Only been going to this facility a short time and seeing terrific results. Dr Dalal has been great. She listened to my complaints and went over the options . She examined my test results and promptly got right to the business of easing my pain. The injections she did have helped so much. I feel Like I’m on the right regimen for the first time in two years. My pain has lessened so much. I have been able to resume some of my activities . Dr Dalal and staff are very professional and knowledgeable while being kind and thoughtful. So thankful I was sent in her direction. I would recommend this facility to friends and family need be. Thank you Dr Dalal and staff
I was referred to Dr. Kneeman by my neurologist for ongoing migraines. I have suffered from severe migraines since I was 13 but officially diagnosed last 3 years. I suffer from occipital neuralgia headaches that start from the base of my skull and go all the way up to behind my left eye and at times can get very painful. Within the first couple minutes of meeting and talking with Dr. Kneeman, I knew I was in capable hands. He knows what he is talking about and does not try to persuade you one way or another about what choice you should take. His staff is just as amazing and will answer any question you have without getting upset with you. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kneeman to my family and friends!

I was referred to Dr Jacob Kneeman after my surgeries for my spine stimulator. I was experiencing severe pain from CRPS, degenerative disc disease as well as arthritis. I went to 3 other pain management clinics only to be told it was in my head. Dr. Kneeman listens and explains. He is amazing

Dr. Gupta and this office changed my life. I was suffering from terrible neck pain and they completely relieved it. They are so accommodating, efficient, and kind as well. I have tried almost every pain management “solution” out there; don’t waste your time; just go here.

I was referred to Kansas pain management 8 or 9 months ago for nerve pain that I had had for about 10 years. My PCP had tried everything. All kinds of meds, physical therapy and had sent me to a different pain clinic where I received some injections that didn’t help. I initially saw Dr. Madl when I was referred to Kansas Pain Management, who I thought was very nice, but he had me try the SCS trial which did nothing for me. At that point I was feeling defeated because according to Dr. Madl that was the last thing that could be done to try to help me and if it didn’t help there weren’t really any other options. I also felt like I was being pushed to have the permanent SCS placed even though the trial hadn’t helped. Dr. Madl left and Dr. Kneeman joined the practice. I wasn’t very excited about explaining my problem yet again to another doctor when, up to this point, I hadn’t had any luck finding a resolution. My first appointment with Dr. Kneeman was so different than any experience I’d had up to that appointment with any doctor. He actually listened. He had empathy and I could tell he really wanted to get to the bottom of my pain. At my second visit Dr. Kneeman referred me to a neurologist for an EMG, something that in the ten years I’d been having pain, had never been mentioned. He told me this would pinpoint the exact origin of the pain. He wasn’t wrong! When I had my EMG, the place where the pain originated was super painful and the doctor told me, “this is where your problem is”. I felt like after so long, trying everything, and feeling defeated, I was finally getting some answers! Dr. Kneeman was just as excited about my results which made me feel good. It wasn’t just a win for me, he made it feel like it was a win for him too! When we met to go over my results, he set up an appointment for three days later for me to get an injection in the actual place where the pain originated, rather than just guessing. I will say the injection was very painful even with deadening medicine, but Dr. Kneeman and Amanda were very compassionate and understanding. They talked to me the whole time and wanted to know how I was feeling. If I had ANY pain, Dr. Kneeman would slow down and give me some time for the pain to subside before continuing. Once the procedure was over, they both visited with me while I waited the 15 minutes before I could leave to make sure I was feeling alright. My injection was this morning. Dr. Kneeman told me it may be a couple of days before I felt any relief but I do believe I’m already getting some. I just can’t believe that I have been dealing with this for ten years, have seen numerous doctors and had so many other procedures, only to have Dr. Kneeman figure out what the problem was in just four visits! I would recommend this office 100%, and especially Dr. Kneeman and Amanda, for any pain issue you might be experiencing. They are the best!! Also, the office staff is very kind and helpful.

I can not recommend highly Dr. Kneeman and the whole staff at KPM. I received treatment for a pinched nerve in my lower back. All my questions were answered and during the procedure itself, Dr. Kneeman explained everything that was happenening.

I have been going to Dr. Gupta for several years now. My neurologist recommended Dr. Gupta. I had lived with migraines since I was 25 over 30 years. My nerves and muscles in my right side of my neck has given me horrible pain for years and when I was told this pain could be taken away I was game. Dr. Gupta was able to use injections to remove this pain for years at a time. Which helped with my migraines then with Botox injection helped control my migraines to a tolerable level. Anna was very kind and Dr. Gupta is always polite and concerned for my well-being.

Patients with Ehler’s Danlos often go through a lot of poking, prodding, doctors, hospitals and surgery centers before and after we receive our diagnosis. It can cause issues the more and more we have to go to appointments and procedures. From the ladies at the front desk to the nurses and doctors in back, everyone is cheerful, friendly, and understanding. I can honestly say the kindness, patience and timeliness of the staff makes every visit easier than it is at any other doctor’s office I go to. They are truly amazing.

Of all the offices I’ve visited for medical reasons, this office staff was the best hands down. They not only greet you with a smile, positive attitude and kind words, they get to know you and care about you as much as the doctors do. Dr. Ray is a thoughtful, caring and patient doctor. She explores all options for your treatments and goes above and beyond to help you get the treatment you need. Such a great place to seek treatment.

Went to Dr. Gupta for a herniated disc. Ended up getting spinal epidural injections and it was a simple Easy procedure. I was quite terrified but Melissa was wonderful at getting me prepped and calming down assuring me it wouldn’t be bad. Excited to see how the results turn out!

Have read previous reviews, & consider myself somewhat of a fact checker; this facility & the people working there may not look to be up to your expectations, however I have been well cared for since being a patient there; and with my illness I have been to a few health facilities & these people are 5 stars plus.

After breaking my back, 10 hip replacements, and a handful of other surgeries, I’ve lived with chronic pain since 2008. I’ve been a patient of Kansas Pain Management for approximately 1.5 years. I have good days and some bad days, but the doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses & office staff have been amazing and are always there for me. In comparison to other PM Facilities, Kansas Pain Management has demonstrated that they are genuinely concerned with my overall health condition and they are consistently monitoring how well they are managing my pain. The staff is always pleasant, considerate & accommodating. If you are living out your days in constant pain, you aren’t really living, you are merely existing. When you are ready to lower your pain level or possibly rid yourself of your pain I would recommend scheduling an appointment. Thank You Kansas Pain Management for always being there for me. Best Wishes, Alan
