Patient Stories: Susan S. had Lower Back Pain from Cancer
When patients have pain and need help, RIA Endovascular can look inside and find the cause. They help manage the pain and get patients back to living. That’s what happened with Susan S.
What brought you to RIA Endovascular?
I was diagnosed with cancer and started having back pain. My oncologist wasn’t sure if it was muscular pain or pain caused by the tumor. He suggested I go to RIA Endovascular and see if there was anything they could do for me. He told me there are different kinds of “blocks” they can do to help relieve pain.
What was your RIA Endovascular experience?
My experience at RIA was wonderful. From the minute I got there everyone was so nice to me. Dr. Stratil explained the procedure and what I could expect. He ended up doing a block that numbed the pain in my lower back. I could not believe it, but after my injection I didn’t have any pain. As a matter of fact, I have had ZERO pain since I went home after the procedure!
What would you tell others about going to RIA Endovascular?
I am so happy my doctor sent me to RIA Endovascular for treatment. It was easy to schedule my appointment, easy to access the clinic and the staff was fantastic. I would recommend RIA to others because they were efficient, courteous and organized. I had a great experience I am happy to share with everyone.
