Dr. Antony's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Antony "Dr. Manonmani Antony, MD is triple board-certified in Anesthesiology (ABA), Pain Medicine (ABA) and Interventional Pain Medicine (ABIPP) and has established herself as a staple of the community since arriving in Delaware in 2004. She completed medical school at University of Peradeniya and later finished her residency at Texas Tech University, where she was awarded the Outstanding Resident Award. Dr. Antony was trained to perform advanced pain procedures utilizing cutting-edge technology during her Pain Management Fellowship at the University of Maryland. Her personal philosophy as a physician motivates her to explore every treatment option possible in order to avoid invasive surgeries and opioid drug abuse in chronic pain patients in order to restore patient's physical, mental, and social well-being." Dr. Antony believes it is her personal responsibility to bridge the divide in modern medical care between conservative treatment options and surgery. As such, she expertly guides her patients to long-term pain relief by purposely avoiding narcotic medicines and invasive surgery in favor of in-office procedures that decrease recovery time while promoting lasting solutions. Dr. Antony's application of strict guidelines in the use of opioids (narcotics) for the treatment of chronic pain to reduce the incidence of abuse and drug diversion prohibit patients from receiving higher dosages of opioids than medically necessary. Her success in using interventional spinal/joint procedures along with physical therapy means that alternative pain-management therapies such as these were offered as a way to supplement patients' pharmacological regimens. Dr. Antony has practiced medicine in Southern Delaware for several years and is intimately familiar with the most common types of pain conditions incurred as well the limitations that prevent patients from recovering as quickly as they can. This has motivated Dr. Antony to pursue a medical approach that emphasizes non-invasive, non-pharmacological pain management therapies providing lasting relief which will help pain patients pursuing their daily activities with the vigor and enthusiasm."

Awesome doctor. Took the time to look at everything. I really feel like I should have come here first. I was chewed up and spit out by the DE healthcare system. I was a mess when I got here but the doctor took the time to get me a stable treatment plan. I was able to recover (I'm like at 90% relief...more

Dr. Antony takes time to listen to me. She genuinely cares about her patients and this alone is what makes the somewhat lengthy wait time worth it.

Everything was great. My only complaint is that she didn't spend more time with me. She was nice and I had a ton of question but she's a busy doctor. She was nice enough to give me her personal email to follow up with her on. Doctors never seem to have enough time for their patients anymore. Drove...more
