I was involved in a very bad auto accident in 2004. After being trapped in the car for four and a half hours, I was transported to the University Hospital for treatment. I suffered multiple injuries; broken right foot, pelvis, both femurs, one was broken in twenty-five places. My injuries were so severe I was put in a drug-induced coma for thirty days. Doctors doubted that I would ever walk again. I had too many surgeries to count and was confined to bed for over nine months. I was allowed to stand next to the bed or be in a wheelchair for short periods of time. I was told to expect to be on pain medications for life.My husband and I moved to Georgia in 2015. No physicians here would accept me as a patient because of the amount of pain medication I was taking. We could not start a family because doctors wouldn't treat me as a pregnant patient. We had to drive seven hours back home so that I could be treated by my doctors there. In December 2015, I found Dr. Theofilis. He not only agreed to help me but explained how he could improve me. He designed a series of procedures to help relieve the bone pain. The pain was so bad that I couldn’t go grocery shopping or walk the dog. I could not walk, think or sleep. My husband had to do everything.
Dr. Theofilis’ treatment plan worked! My life has improved 75% by not having bone pain. The pain meds I take now actually work without having to take additional doses a day for breakthrough pain. My life has changed in a huge way. Dr. Theofilis would call to check on me to see how I was doing. That never happened with other doctors before. I had given up and thought that this was what life was supposed to be like. Now, my husband and I can start a family. Your business has given me the opportunity to have a family! I believe that God allowed me to live so that I could share this story to help and inspire others.
I played for the Seattle Mariners for a few years until I had a career ending knee injury. At 42 I was too young for a total knee replacement. I found Dr. Theofilis, who has been treating me for the past four months. He recently performed a right knee geniculate nerve treatment, which gave me greater than 95% pain relief. Now I can play golf and walk the golf course without suffering. I haven't been able to do that in 10 years!
Note from an Army Special Forces patient who sustained an injury in Afghanistan.
Dr. T, I just wanted to let you know this has by far been the best I have felt since my injury. My back still feels odd but not as painful as it used to be. It hurt so bad that it was hard to take a deep breath sometimes. Thank you!
Dr. Theofilis & Staff (along with a cake) - Thanking God for all of the good work he is doing through you as you serve him and his people. You are the best!
