Prior to being treated by Dr. Raj Sureja at the Orthopaedic and Spine Center, I was a patient at another pain clinic in the area. Over a period of seven to eight years, I had numerous injections in my back and I was on a variety of pain medications. By the time I was seen by Dr. Sureja, I was on ever increasing doses of morphine and hydrocodone. The physician at the pain clinic had asked me what my expectations were. I told him that, eventually, I would like to be able to discontinue taking pain medications. He told me that I was being unrealistic and that this would not happen.
After treatment with Dr. Sureja involving radio frequency denervation, I was able to gradually decrease and then stop the pain medications. I am forever thankful to Dr. Sureja and the staff at Orthopaedic and Spine Center for the excellent care I have received.
