Dr. Musser's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Musser "Dr. J. Tobias Musser is a board certified Physiatrist (Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Physician) with specialty fellowship training in Interventional Pain Management (IPM) and a specific interest in spine and musculoskeletal conditions. IPM is an area of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of pain-related disorders. Residing in the Atlanta area he is active in pain management advocacy and healthcare education outside of his clinical duties at the Shepherd Center. He also has a keen interest in biomedical engineering. "As a Pain Management Specialist, I'm concerned about my patients' ability to function and their quality of life - facets of life which can be limited by pain. One of my roles is to help develop a treatment plan to relieve, reduce, or management my patients' pain and to help them return to everyday activities quickly without surgery or heavy reliance on medication. I typically coordinate care through an interdisciplinary team of health professionals. However, I see my main role is to provide health education to my patients and EMPOWER them to become more involved with their care, to make lifestyle, diet, and fitness changes, and to become more involved with becoming/remaining healthy. I consider the patient as the star player of their team." -- Dr. J. T. Musser"
