Finding coccyx treatment in Louisiana


Posted 2019-04-28

I was living in Alexandria, LA and had had coccyx pain for a year when my primary doctor referred me to Dr. Sean Stehr for help (see Doctors and specialists in the USA, Louisiana). He offered ganglion impar injections by fluoroscopy. I responded well to two injections a few weeks apart for several months, anyway. I found him to be very compassionate and knowledgeable. He believed he could see arthritis on my tailbone from mri images I brought to him (had an injury several years prior).

We moved to Ruston, LA the following year (last year) and the journey began in finding a new Doctor to help me with my pain. Even with referrals, it was a difficult process. Finally, I was accepted by Dr. Navneet Sharma (see Doctors and specialists in the USA, Louisiana)., who continued my back to back steroid injections because of good results from Dr Stehr. He also added a pain med for the harder days and sent me for pelvic floor therapy. He is very interested in looking for more solutions for me in the future even to consulting with some medical personnel at larger institutions. His staff is also incredibly compassionate.
