I was fortunate to have Dr Hua perform surgery on me around 6 years ago . I would have been permanently disabled if it wasn’t for Dr Hua and highly recommend him as a competent surgeon.

Dr. Hua is amazing. I suffered for years with a severe neck problem. He performed my surgery and I've been pain free in my neck for the last 3 years. It's time to have my Low Back surgery, and here I am looking him up again. That should tell you something, because I won't let anyone else cut on me. He did a great job and when he found more problems than anticipated he stayed 9-1/2 hours to make sure he got it done right. I strongly recommend Dr. Hua.

I had my lumbar fusion surgery done by Dr. Hua 2 weeks ago, it is the dime surgery, once I was awoken from the surgery, I can feel the pinching pain and numbness which stretched from my right bud all the way down to the lower leg had all gone, right now I am pain-free and can walk a mile a day! Thanks for Dr. Hua who has done the amazing surgery!
