I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back.

I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.Glen ★★★★★

I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.Sharon
