Anesthesiologist makes full recovery with PT

Kraig de Lanzac, MD has a busy schedule working as an anesthesiologist, but still fits in regular gym activity like cardio and strength training. Over the course of time, Kraig suffered from a lumbar disc extrusion, which caused him to have urgent surgery, secondary to foot drop and severe pain.

“This was my second back surgery and I worried about returning to my active medical practice of anesthesiology, as well as being as active and pain-free as I was before surgery,” said Kraig.  “In addition, I wanted to avoid future injury.”

Kraig visited Baudry Therapy Center | BRIO and received “customized exercise and additional tools to combat the occasional flare-up of back pain, thanks to the team at Baudry.”

Kraig gained confidence that when pain arises, he could use his training to help minimize pain and recovery timeframe.

After 12 weeks in physical therapy, Kraig returned to the gym and is working just as actively as he did before surgery.

“Kraig was committed to the recovery process from day one.  He frequently asked what he could be doing at work and home to get better.  He was very consistent with his exercise routine and made smart changes to his lifestyle,” said Kevin Dessauer, PT.  “Kraig took the time to learn what it takes to keep himself moving well, so he could heal well and reduce the risk of re-injury.”

Kraig added, “I loved going to my physical therapy sessions at BTC.  After being down about a second back surgery, I was looking for some positivity that I got from the team at Baudry.  We always had a good time, while getting the work done.”
