Pain Management Awareness Week: September 3 - 7

Mr. Anthony B. is a 64-year-old gentleman who retired from Shell Oil 12 years ago as a Safety Manager. He has had issues with neck pain since his high school days playing football. Seven years ago, he had three fusions performed on his neck with not much success. Two years later, Mr. Anthony had to have the surgery repeated with an additional two more levels to be fused. Unfortunately, five years ago, Mr. Anthony re-injured his neck in a car accident. His surgeon advised against surgery because it could possibly leave him paralyzed. He was referred to a pain management physician.

When it was time for Mr. Anthony to have a pain management procedure, his physician chose Baton Rouge Rehab Hospital. Mr. Anthony stated "When I walked in the door, I knew I was at the right place. I was greeted by friendly staff who made me feel like a family member. They didn't treat me like just another patient, I felt like I was one of their own. They were concerned with how I was doing that day, and how to make me comfortable and address my pain levels until the procedure with the physician. They helped me during the whole process from preop to postop. Their communication skills with me and my family was like second to none!"

"Baton Rouge Rehab is a wonderful facility. If you ask me who my favorite is out of the staff, I say all of them. I think of the staff as my family."

Mr. Anthony is now able to return to his volunteer work in the community as a Baptist preacher. He leads Bible study at a men's prison in Plaquemine and a nursing home in Gonzales. "God has blessed me so I want to give back to Him."

Mr. Anthony's mother-in-law was having pain issues and has also had a pain procedure at Baton Rouge Rehab. He said she had to admit that he was right... wonderful people to help you manage your pain.
