LEXINGTON For years, Saroj Dubal, MD, has served the Lexington community in the field of pain management. Recently, Dubal announced her retirement. As part of that announcement, Commonwealth Pain & Spine (CP&S) stated that they have merged with Advanced Pain Medicine.

As a result, the 101 Prosperous Place, Suite 300 location of Advanced Pain Medicine is now part of the Commonwealth Pain & Spine family of clinics.

“With over seven locations and 30 providers, Commonwealth Pain & Spine is fast becoming the largest and most well-respected comprehensive pain management network in our region,” said Jeff Ellison, COO of Commonwealth Pain & Spine.

Ellison added that this recent growth is due in part to:

A commitment to attracting, retaining, and nurturing a staff of the best and brightest pain management experts in the nation — physicians and support staff alike.
Committing to a patient-centered delivery model.
Responsibly serving the needs of their patients, and leading efforts to reduce opioid dependency in the communities they serve.
Making a commitment to the research, development, and execution of evolving, non-narcotic, state-of-the-art procedures, treatments, therapies, and ancillary services.

“Commonwealth Pain & Spine is excited to bring their passion for serving patients, their well-rounded comprehensive approach to managing chronic pain, and a message of opioid awareness, rooted in a desire to fight prescription medication abuse to the Lexington community,” said Kyle Young, MD, managing partner of Commonwealth Pain & Spine.

“With the departure of Dr. Dubal, Commonwealth Pain & Spine is excited to announce that Dr. David Bosomworth and Dr. Brandon Gish will be the primary care physicians at the newly renamed Commonwealth Pain & Spine location in Lexington, Ky.,” said Ellison.

Bosomworth has served the Lexington community for over 20 years. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Kentucky, earned his medical degree from the UK College of Medicine, and completed postdoctoral training in anesthesiology as a resident at the UK Chandler Medical Center. Bosomworth is a member of the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the American Board of Independent Medical Examiners, and the American Board of Anesthesiology. He also served as an assistant professor of anesthesiology at UK.

Gish graduated from Centre College in Danville, Ky., earned his medical degree from the UK College of Medicine, and completed a residency in anesthesiology at the UK Chandler Medical Center where he served as chief resident. He recently completed a fellowship in pain medicine at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. Gish has been certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and was named a Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) scholar. While a student, he coincidentally was awarded the Peter P. Bosomworth Excellence in Anesthesiology Award, as well as Outstanding Senior Resident and Senior Academic Excellence awards during his training. Gish lives in Lexington with his wife and their twin children.
