I had the privilege of receiving care from Dr. Yanamadula during the summer of 2019. As a college athlete that was home for the summer preparing for another season, my three months at home consisted of high intensity weight/ resistance training five times a week and playing in games three to four times a week. During my training sessions I noticed tightness in my lower back and glutes, which quickly turned to sharp pain and numbing sensations down my left leg. Knowing that my summer was ending quickly, and I would have to return to college athletics in a short amount of time, I chose Dr. Yanamadula and his office based on his impressive track record of success, expertise, and efficiency. My first visit to the office consisted of a physical exam, an in-depth review of my MRI, and Dr. Y listening to my symptoms/history. Dr. Y and I planned to perform an ablation in my lower back after two rounds of cortisone/lidocaine injections. I am extremely thankful to say that upon completing the procedures, my pain relief was nearly a 100%. Dr. Y was extremely helpful before, during, and after the procedure. Dr. Y advocated for me to continue physical therapy post-procedure to increase strength and flexibility in my lower back. These customized steps from Dr. Y are why I truly believe I was able to return to playing collegiate athletics. The staff in the office went above and beyond to answer any questions I had regarding the process. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Y to anyone suffering with pain. I strongly encourage early assessment and intervention so there is less suffering and pain in the long run. Dr. Y, truly one of the best!
