Robert R. Bulger, M.D. Joins Ascendant Neuro

September 1, 2010

DALLAS, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ — Ascendant Neuro is pleased to announce the addition of Robert R. Bulger, M.D., a nationally recognized specialist, who has joined to further the advancement of the group’s minimally invasive pain treatment techniques through the innovative use of neurostimulators. Ascendant Neuro’s trained physicians, which treat chronic pain of the spine as well as chronic migraine headaches, are the only doctors performing this unique migraine treatment in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

After attending the prestigious Mayo Medical School College of Medicine, Dr. Bulger trained in both Internal Medicine and Anesthesiology at Emory University in Atlanta. During his fellowship at Penn State, he developed epidural infusion protocols and techniques for post-operative pain that have since been adopted by numerous hospitals, including the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. Other honors include an invitation to be an expert panelist and lecturer at the American Society of Anesthesiology national meeting, visiting professor for the UT Southwestern Medical Center residency and a former President of the Dallas County Anesthesia Society. Dr. Bulger has also been selected by his peers as one of D Magazine’s Best Doctors in Dallas in each of the past six years.

“Ascendant Neuro and our specially trained physicians are dedicated to providing the best care for patients,” said Alex Noffsinger, President of Ascendant Neuro. “Dr. Bulger’s knowledge and experience will help more chronic pain patients resume pain free lives.”

Ascendant Neuro physicians are specially trained in neurostimulation which works by safely and gently stimulating certain superficial nerves of the head. Medical investigations suggest that in turn, this stimulation ultimately reaches key areas of the brain known to be important in the genesis of headaches. Thus, instead of simply “masking” or “covering” headache pain, this methodology may treat the underlying cause of the headaches.

Ascendant Neuro is able to treat all type of severe headaches, including any kind of severe head pain that occurs on a consistent and frequent basis. Even patients with the most severe headaches that have not responded to other treatments, commonly respond dramatically to this type of treatment – often with virtually complete resolution of the headaches during the use of the stimulator.

Ascendant Neuro plans to expand its elite group of hand-selected specialists in key locations nationwide, including Houston, Southern California and New Jersey, with expansion to select markets internationally also under way.
