in Georgetown, DE |
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.
in Philadelphia, PA |
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 from PA to see her because I had a good experience with her 3 years ago and then another year before that. I normally get one injection from her a year. Someting like that.

Dr. Antony says...

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.

Dr. Antony says...

She Specializes in Providing Long-term Pain Relief for Chronic Pain by using following newer technology.

chronic cervical, thoracic, and lumbar facet -  mediated -  pain .

Radiofrequency ablation involves heating the medial branches with a filament placed near the sensory nerve using fluoroscopic guidance.  Heat from radiofrequency disables the sensory nerves that innervate the facet joints (knows as Denervation).  Patients with suspected facet pain who respond well to diagnostic blocks are good candidates for RF of their medial branch nerves.  A RF procedure takes about 30 minutes.  RF results can give patients significant pain relief for 12 to 18 months at a time and can be repeated indefinitely when needed. The benefit of RF, other than long lasting relief for your patient, is fewer procedures and medications overall since the results from RF last much longer than blocks with steroid alone.


Chronic neuropathic pain due post-surgery nerve damage, radiculopathy, diabetic neuropathy and reflex sympathetic dystrophy.

She has extensive experience in treating patients with spinal cord stimulator (SCS). A SCS is a specialized device that stimulates the spinal cord and spinal nerves by tiny electrical impulses via a small electrical wire placed behind and just outside the spinal cord in the epidural space. The electrical wire or lead contains a series of four to eight evenly spaced electrodes that can be programmed to generate an electrical field. A SCS generates a low level electric field to interrupt nerve conduction of pain signals to the brain. Typically, after patients have failed more conservative treatment options, consideration is given to a trial of spinal cord stimulation. Rather than put an expensive device permanently into a patient, a temporary spinal cord stimulator wire is placed in a patient for several days to a week. This temporary wire gives the patient an opportunity to experience spinal cord stimulation without having to undergo a full implantation. If this trial is successful in relieving pain, a permanent device can be placed under the skin at another date. Placement of a trial stimulator wire or lead takes from thirty minutes to an hour. Typically, the physician is looking for a significant increase in activity tolerance or a significant decrease in the need for pain medication or some combination of both. Placement of a permanent spinal cord stimulator wire and a subcutaneous pulse generator or battery takes from one to two hours. Typically, if successful trial stimulation is followed up with permanent placement, patients will have a 50 to 70% reduction in their pain.
