I was hit by a drunk driver and went to see dr Wansom for pain in my lower back, hip. He did his procedure he recommended and 4-5 days later the pain in hip and lower back was 85% better. Now I’m moving around a lot better and doing things I couldn’t do before his help. Highly recommended Dr Wansom due other specialist from LaGrange telling me there wasn’t anything else he could do that I would just have to deal with it. Now I’m feeling 100% better Thanks to Dr Wansom.

Dr Wansom is great. He has offered me many options for treatment of CRPS. We’ve discussed having spinal stimulator implant, but I’m just nervous about it. Hes fine with me continuing oral medications for now, and respects my decisions. I’m stable with only rare ‘serious’ pain. Great doctor who has a very caring manner. Highly recommended.

Dr. Wansom gave me SI (sacroiliac)joint injections after it was determined by a bone scan that I had a SI joint dysfunction. This brought me immediate relief after 28 years of severe chronic pain! The pain did come back as predicted after a few months. Now he is using a procedure called RF Therapy with the intention of providing longer lasting pain relief. Dr. Wansom is quiet but has been a good pain specialist for me!

I was treated like a drug addict because of the amount of medication I had been taking for years and was then abruptly taken off of it without any concern or plan for how my pain would be managed beyond the removal of that particular medication. Essentially, I could self-pay (insurance not accepted) for very expensive procedures or nothing.
