I have been seen by several different doctors in the last 7 years and I have had radiofrequency ablation from each. Dr. Hanna is the ONLY doctor that has given me relief from my pain. He is kind and patient and obviously very knowledgeable. No one cares enough to get to the root of my problem and correct them.*

Dr. Hanna is a very good doctor. The RFA was the only thing that really helped me in the last 15 years. I thank him so much. He is a great doctor, so personable. I have been seeing him for the last 20 years. Great staff.

Amazing results with the RFA treatment after 16 years of really bad back pain. No pain for one full year after the Radiofrequency Ablation procedure!

RFA injections improved my life and being able to function again 100%. The treatment itself was easy to get through. I can exercise and do things I haven’t been able to do in years. i would do this again and recommend anyone else to take the treatments.

After having the RFA I was able to go to through the day without the severe pain I had on a daily basis. I was able to do more activity without worrying if it would leave me in bed the next day from stiffness, muscle spasms pain which also triggered migraines. I am very pleased.

CS 3/18/2015

I had an RFA with about 70% pain relief. I am also in pulmonary rehab and doing well; starting to exercise again. Still have some pain but I am doing well with my medication to keep my pain manageable. I am anxious to see how much more relief I will have when I lose more weight. I have lost 13 lbs so far; I have joined nutrisystem and am very pleased. Thank You Dr. Hanna.

Dr. Hanna is great and all the RFA and ESI trigger points have finally helped a lot. Its not gone yet but it is better. I the the body is finally adjusting to the help. The relief is great. Right now I am working on the trigger point shots.

Second RFA procedure has been largely successful. I have experienced significant relief which has allowed me to pursue intensive training consisting of long distance running such as half and full marathons. My pain relief specifically includes relief to my sciatica nerve, leg pain, and persistent pain and pressure in my hip. Additionally, long periods of prolonged sitting is not as painful. I’ve seen Dr. Hanna since 2009 and have been very pleased with his treatment plan for me.

Denise Mull 2/3/2015

Words can not express how deeply grateful I am for the wonderful care Dr. Hanna and his staff (especially his P.A.) provide. After several spine surgeries, I was still left with 70% neuropathy and pain. From my head to my legs, the pain was/is disabling. Dr. Hanna has been providing pain management with care and precision. Working closely with his staff, I will soon have a spinal cord stimulator and a new life!!!

In 2005, I was involved in a car accident out of state. Doctors there told me that without surgery, I might suffer paralysis of my legs due to the splintering of a vertebra that was compromising my spinal cord. After enduring four back surgeries within 35 days, I was left with a spinal fusion from the middle of my back to my tailbone. The removal of two ribs created a huge hernia on my left side and excruciating pain throughout most of my body.
Dr. Hanna has performed radiofrequency (deadening of the nerves) to my lower back on both sides of my spinal cord. The procedure is a very delicate one to avoid colliding with the two metal rods and many screws. These procedures, along with medication, allows me to suffer much less pain and increases mobility. I can once again enjoy flower gardening, shuffleboarding, fishing family outings and just being alive!

I have been diagnosed with neuropathy and chronic pain for 15 years. I have seen and been under the care of too many physicians to count while having little to no results for the moment to moment pain i suffered. When my PCM referred me to Dr. Hanna, I had little hope he would suggest anything but the drug therapy I had already needed to over the years. Instead, he thoroughly examined every aspect of my pain and came up with an actual plan to conquer it. One part of his plan was RFA on both the left and right side of my neck. The procedure sounded dreadfully scary to me but Dr, Hanna gentle compassion gave me the ability to trust and HOPE. I am thrilled to announce my hope was well-founded. I have much more range in the neck and the pain has lessened considerably! There is not a visit that goes by when I do not insist on hugging Dr. Hanna. His thorough care for me never ends as he constantly checks and double checks any changes in my physical body. I am oh-so thankful to have finally found a physician, a pain physician who cares about my whole being. I have yet to leave his office without feeling relief.

Such a gentleman! I have been very happy with the care I have received at Florida Spine. Dr. Hanna and his staff are wonderful and caring people. The staff at C-Med is also outstanding. As a patient with facet joint pain for many years, I have been amazed at how good my body feels after having several RFA treatments. Thank you Dr. Hanna Staff!

Prior to seeing Dr. Hanna, Mary Sullivan had immense pain and could not move her neck. Dr. Hanna performed a Radiofrequency Ablation treatment that reduced Mary’s pain and allowed her to move freely and gave her mobility. *results vary
