Emanuel Husu, Md
Interventional Pain Management Specialist
Dr. Husu received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Irvine. He went on to obtain his medical degree from the University of Arizona School of Medicine, where his interest in pain medicine first began. He cultivated a biopsychosocial-spiritual and holistic approach to patient care during medical school. His desire to build on these skills lead him to pursue his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After residency, Dr. Husu completed his fellowship in interventional pain medicine in the anesthesiology department and rehabilitation medicine department at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Interventional pain medicine allowed Dr. Husu to cultivate his holistic approach to patient care even more, and also apply his in-depth knowledge of anatomy for the precise delivery of therapy for pain.
Dr. Husu strives to meet the needs of his patients every day by providing comprehensive patient care through interventional pain procedures, medication management and optimization, as well as additional therapies. Dr. Husu accepts patients with acute and chronic pain from a variety of conditions and strives to provide quality care to improve daily function and quality of life for his patients. Dr. Husu is hoping to start seeing patients as soon as mid-December 2018.
“Holistic is the word that best describes my approach to patients with chronic pain. Research has shown that successful pain management is multimodal. I like to think of pain management like a hand that brings healing with the fingers representing these 5 areas of focus: procedures, lifestyle changes, medications, therapy which can be physical and/or psychological, and surgery. Above all, the most crucial instrument in this hand is the patient truly wanting to get better and he or she taking an active and leading role in the pain management process. Our primary goal as pain physicians is to work in concert with our patients so that together through a holistic approach we can improve quality of life and improve functional outcomes.” - Dr. Husu

“I had suffered from chronic foot pain, undergone 10 foot surgeries, and taken pain medications on and off for 10 years before receiving the Axium™ Neurostimulator System. It has changed my life, I could not clean my house before without being in pain, and I was so uncomfortable that just having a blanket on my foot at night required a pain pill to sleep and now I can walk barefoot. I am not limping anymore, and I can wear shoes that I could not wear in the past. Even better, I am no longer taking pain medications for my foot. It’s amazing to have severe pain one moment and be nearly free of it the next.”
