Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Husain "My goal is to work with patients to improve their pain and quality of life.  I always advocate attempting all non-surgical treatment options prior to considering any sort of surgical procedures.  If patients have exhausted all non-surgical options, I aim to present all surgical options to the patients and to come up with a game plan that is best suited to them and their specific issue."
