I have been a patient of North Fulton Hospital’s Pain and Spine Center for 14 years. I found them after other centers in Atlanta were unable to help me, and they have been great! The doctors keep up with all the new medications and techniques and are willing to try new things. I just tried using Ketamine at their suggestion, and I haven’t needed any of the other pain medications since the second day after the treatment! Sometimes trying something new is all it takes.
There is no finer bunch of people in a hospital than the nurses and doctors at North Fulton Hospital’s Pain and Spine Center. They have given me my life back! I was disabled, walking with a cane, and barely able to breathe because I was in constant pain. The spinal stimulator that they recommended is awesome! In the few months I have had it, I’ve been able to live a normal comfortable life, even traveling with my family to the beach. 20 years ago, bowling was my favorite thing to do, and I can’t wait for the day I am cleared to bowl again. I am so happy I chose the Pain and Spine Center!
My wife and I were referred to North Fulton Hospital’s Pain and Spine Center 10 years ago. We especially appreciate the skills and very pleasant demeanor of Doctor Wada and his staff, especially Kathy. Dr. Wada was able to diagnose and greatly improve the very painful post-operative condition of Brenda’s knee after many had mis-diagnosed and told us to live with it. The center has also treated Brenda for back, hip, foot and thigh pain. A neuro-stimulator inserted surgically helped tremendously in these areas. We are grateful to all at the center who have given us their support. We have both been treated successfully at the center and recommend it highly.
When Rita Swaye began to experience lower back pain in 2005, she explored a variety of treatment options to manage the pain.
“I tried everything from injections to radiofrequency lesioning, but nothing helped,” says Rita. “The pain I was experiencing was tremendous and kept me from enjoying life.”
Finally, she decided to undergo surgery at North Fulton Hospital in 2008. From her first consultation to discharge, Rita was very pleased with her experience.“
Everyone I met was so helpful and caring, especially the surgeons,” says Rita. “I was impressed by the private recovery rooms and how spotless everything was. The staff and environment immediately made me feel more at ease—it was like I was at home.
