Dr. Emad is board certified in Pain Medicine and performs procedures such as injections of cortisone, prolotherapy, Synvisc/hyalgan, epidurals, as well as special procedures for lumbar spine disc herniation (discography, Nucleoplasty, Decompressor and IDET).
Dr. Emad is board certified in Electrodiagnostic Medicine (NERVE, Inc.) which is a special testing of the nerves to assess for injury to diagnose conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Sciatica (Electromyography, Nerve Conduction Study).
