Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tung "Dr. Tung's goal is to alleviate pain in order to maximize functional recovery.

"My patients can get back to living their lives instead of being preoccupied with pain."

Dr. Tung believes that treating pain, especially chronic pain, with medications alone is not beneficial.

"Pain is multifaceted, usually having a specific 'pain generator,' a generalized central nervous system response, a psychosocial component, and sometimes a related physical impairment. To effectively treat pain, we must address all of these components. As every patient's pain is unique, the treatment plan must be individualized."

Dr. Tung is aggressive with diagnosis because he considers a clear diagnosis essential for effective treatment.

"I strongly believe in patient education as it is essential for patients to understand their diagnoses along with the rationale for treatment. This enables my patients to be active participants in their medical care, rather than passive recipients of pills and injections.""
