Thierry Bonnabesse, MD
After the birth of their first child, Dr Bonnabesse and his wife returned to the North East, and in 2004 , Dr. Bonnabesse founded Champlain Spine and Pain Management in Plattsburgh. Since then, the practice has grown from one provider to 5 providers. In 2009, Dr Bonnabesse moved its practice to their brand new state of the art medical building to offer better comfort to their patients, and ease of care with on-site XR and ultrasound guided treatments. Dr Bonnabesse also created, 9 years ago, an interventional pain fellowship, which has allowed him to teach his interventional techniques to many physicians from across the country. Dr Bonnabesse’s philosophy, when it comes to his specialty, is that “there is no gain in pain”, and what he enjoys the most about his work, is to be able to improve his patient’s quality of life: “there is nothing more satisfying that to enable a woman to be able to carry her child or grand-child without excruciating pain, to allow a person to keep their job or to enable an outdoor person to return to his or her hobby. It is extremely gratifying to know that, at the end of the day, someone will able to sleep through the night without being awakened by pain”. At the end of the day it is really about making a positive difference in someone’s life”.
Dr. Bonnabesse enjoys spending his free time with his family which includes his wife, 2 children, and 3 dogs. He really enjoys the outdoors, and the beauty of our region. He has also been a competitive tennis player for over 35 years playing at the regional and national levels, both in France and in the US. He also enjoys international food and foreign languages.
