Dr. Elizabeth Russo-Stringer

Dr. Elizabeth Russo-Stringer is a native of Baton Rouge.  She attended Our Lady of Mercy elementary school and St. Joseph’s Academy high school.  She graduated from LSU Baton /rouge with bachelors of science degrees in Microbiology and Zoology. 

She decided to follow in the footsteps of her father, Vincent Russo, MD, a general and vascular surgeon who practiced in Baton Rouge for over 25 years, by becoming a physician.  She received her medical doctorate from LSU medical school in New Orleans (Charity Hospital) and completed her residency in Anesthesia at the University of Alabama, Birmingham.  She then further specialized in the field of interventional pain management with a fellowship at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. 

 

     

“I wanted to be able to help people be more functional by addressing their pain.  I also wanted to help those patients whose pain wasn’t easily treated—cancer patients.  My grandmother died of lung cancer, as did my father later, and I saw the discomfort they experienced, and the difficulty their physicians had in lessening their pain.“ 

The fellowship gave her vast experience in managing her patients’ pains without medication by using minimally invasive techniques, such as nerve blocks, epidural steroid injections, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal cord stimulator trials.  “All types of pains were addressed and treated—neck pain, back pain, chest wall pain, headaches, leg/arm pain from variety of causes, and, even, pelvic pain.  It was very rewarding.” 

Dr. Russo-Stringer decided to move back to Baton Rouge to help the people she grew up with.  “I know the people of southern Louisiana.  They are very active with work,  with free time playing golf and fishing, for instance, and,  with their families.  The grandparents and, even, great-grandparents, in Louisiana are active, too, and important in the raising of the children of the family.  So pain control is important for them to live life to the fullest .”

Dr Russo-Stirnger is double board certified in interventional pain management and anesthesia (through the American Board of Anesthesiologists). She addresses the physical causes of the pain and helps with the psychological strain those pains put on the patient and their family.  Dr. Russo-Stringer plans to expand her practice into other non-invasive techniques to help with pain, stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
