Dr. Sherwin Hua
Dr. Sherwin Hua brings nearly a decade of experience treating patients with complex spine and brain disorders. He has performed over 3,000 surgeries since finishing Residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2005 and has taken care of thousands of patients with neurosurgical and pain issues. He brings this wealth of experience into every consultation and into every surgery. Every patient and situation is different, and so Dr. Sherwin Hua practices the art of neurosurgery one patient at a time. In today’s health care system, a patient can be treated like a game of baseball: once the primary doctor, physical therapist, and pain specialist fail to control a patient’s pain with medications, exercise, and injections, the surgeon gets his/her try at bat. If he is unable to treat the pain after exhausting the surgical options, then the patient is sent for surgical pain management for spinal cord stimulation or pain pump. There is no comprehensive approach. Dr. Sherwin Hua is one of the few individuals who has expertise in all three disciplines of complex spine surgery, minimally invasive spine surgery, and pain management. This broad expertise allows him to choose the best option whether it is surgical or non-surgical for each individual’s problem and situation. Instead of taking turns at bat, Dr. Hua knows when to try therapy or injections and when to try a stimulator versus decompression surgery. This way you will be able to go straight to the treatment that is most effective for your particular problem.
