Testimonials

Everything was as I expected. My surgery went well and I was treated with perfect care. Thank you! 

Pilar

I am so happy with Dr. Hua. I came out of surgery without the pain I was previously experiencing. I had heard so many negative comments about back surgery but after my experience with Dr. Hua and his great God given gift, I will recommend him to everyone with a back problem who is contemplating surgery. Thank you! You gave me my life back!

Martha V.

It has been 4 months since my fusion. I am proof that this procedure works. The day before surgery, I could only walk with a cane about 60-80 feet without stopping.  Two weeks after this procedure on 3, 4, & 5 vertebra, I was able to walk a mile a day. This is the first time in 12 years I can walk with no pain or numbness. I am 68 years old and now walk 2 miles a day with no cane and pain free! Many thanks to Dr. Sherwin Hua for this non invasive procedure, his extensive knowledge and expertise!

Leonard A.

Dr. Hua explained everything in great detail: the pre-surgery, surgery and post surgery. What they didn't explain is how fast I healed and returned to normal everyday life! It was a pleasure to work with them and I tell everyone with similar symptoms to check out their medical practice.

Thank you for the excellent operation on my lower spine. Healing has been quick and I have received excellent, professional care from Dr. Hua, and his staff has been outstanding!

Howard

Dr. Hua did exceedingly well in taking care of my back problem. Thank you!

Moises

I love Dr. Hua and the treatment I received in the hospital.

Angela

After a 9 hour surgery on my neck, from C2 to C7 fixing another Drs mistake, I was pain free and have been so for 4 years. Prior to the surgery I was a shut in never leaving my house because of the pain. If I could I would build a statue to Dr. Hua, He is that good!

Minimal Incision, Maximum Results

FACT: The smaller the incision the quicker the healing time and lower chance of infection. Dr. Hua specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery. With his patented technique he strives to complete spine fusions with incisions smaller than the width of a dime.

SERVICES

Back and Leg Pain

Dr. Hua specializes diagnosing back and leg pain.  Dr. Hua strives to help  you become pain free without the risk of surgery.  If surgery is needed Dr. Hua uses advanced minimally invasive patented techniques to use the smallest incision and provide the best possible outcomes, faster healing time and lower risks of infection.

Brain Disorders

From facial pain to brain tumors, brain disorders can be complex to understand and treat. Dr. Hua explains the problem clearly and treats the problem effectively. Blood clots are treated using tiny incisions, while brain surgery is done with minimal hair shave.

Neck and Arm Pain

Cervical spine disease can cause neck pain, arm pain, headache, and even paralysis. Dr. Hua specializes in proven techniques like Artifical Disc Replacement and Foraminotomy which avoids fusion and Laminoplasty which avoids laminectomy and preserves stability.

Dime Sized Incision Spinal Fusion

Dr. Hua has developed and patented the smallest incision and most minimally invasive techniques for spinal fusion.  The Dime Spine Fusion technique allows a full fusion called a TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion) or a PLIF (Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion) through a single dime or nickel sized incision (18-20mm). 

Laminectomy Surgery

Laminectomy is one of the most common spine surgeries performed by neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons.  It involves removing the “roof” of the spine which is made up of the lamina and the spinous process.  Laminectomy surgery is successful in the short term because the bone and ligaments around the nerve sac are removed completely.  However in the long term there is a higher risk for post-laminectomy syndrome

Dime Sized Incision Spinal Surgery

Dr. Hua performs Microscopic Discectomy surgery through an incision smaller than a dime through a small tube and a microscope.  This incision size is about the size of some endoscopic or laparoscopic surgical incisions.  In some cases a true endoscopic approach is an option for patients with foraminal stenosis through incisions smaller than a half inch (10mm).

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation is the best way to treat pain that cannot be treated by conventional spine surgery.  You're a candidate for Spinal Cord Stimulation if you've had spine surgery and still have pain (failed back or neck surgery syndrome).  If you have pain that cannot be treated by spine surgery (i.e. the surgeon says your MRI does not explain the pain you're having).  Or if you have pain and have failed all other treatments.

Chronic Subdural Hematoma

One of the most common brain disorders requiring neurosurgery is a chronic subdural hematoma.  A subdural hematoma is a blood clot between the skull and the brain, i.e. on the surface of the brain.  Acute or fresh subdural hematomas typically result from head trauma and require immediate neurosurgical evaluation and may require emergency craniotomy surgery.

Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain

Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the most painful conditions known to mankind.  Stabbing and electric shock like pain shoots across the face rendering the patient helpless and in agony. Most cases respond to medications in the early stages of the disease.  However over time the effectiveness of the medication can wear off.  Once the pain becomes medically intractable, surgical intervention may be necessary.

Brain Tumor Surgery

Being diagnosed with a brain tumor is a devastating experience.  Brain tumors can be benign or malignant.  Depending on the suspected variety, brain tumors can be watched conservatively or may need to be treated with surgery or radiation or both.  When surgery is indicated, you need the most advanced technology available to pinpoint the location and boundaries of the tumor.

Laminoplasty

The alternative to laminectomy for cervical spinal stenosis is laminoplasty.  Instead of removing the lamina, only one side of the lamina is disconnected.  On the other side, a hinge is created so that the lamina can be opened like a door on a hinge.  Then a plate is placed on the opened side to keep the door open.  This procedure is able to create more room for the spinal cord while preserving the lamina and spinous process for muscles to attach.

Total Disc Replacement

Because of the success of hip and knee joint replacement, total disc replacement has been touted as the holy grail of cervical disc surgery.  Instead of fusing the disc space, an artificial disc capable of joint motion is placed into the empty disc space. 

Cervical Foraminal Stenosis

The narrowing of the nerve foramen or canal (foraminal stenosis) can be treated by either an anterior discectomy or from a posterior approach called a foraminotomy.  The cervical foraminotomy can be performed because it opens the nerve foramen lateral to the spinal cord.  Thus the spinal cord is not manipulated. 

Lamina Preserving Spine surgery

Dr. Hua has refined the technique of LAMINA PRESERVING SPINE SURGERY.  The alternative to laminectomy is to carefully clear the ligamentous overgrowth and bone spurs pinching the nerves that are causing the pain without removing the lamina and spinous processes.  Some bone is shaved using a precision drill, but the roof of the spine, i.e. the lamina, is preserved.
