Dr. Tarik Husain is trained in multiple specialties including Orthopaedic Surgery, Hand Surgery, Sports Medicine Surgery, as well as Plastic/Aesthetic surgery.  His current upper extremity surgery interests are in minimally invasive carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel surgeries, hand/wrist/elbow fractures, wrist/shoulder arthroscopy, trigger fingers, and ganglion cysts.  His plastic surgery interests include reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.

Dr. Husain received his medical degree from the University of Southern California – Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles.  He then completed an Orthopaedic Surgery Residency, with an emphasis on Sports Medicine from Tripler Army Medical Center.
After completion of his training, Dr. Husain was stationed in Korea and Germany as a United States Army Orthopaedic Surgeon.  He treated a wide range of combat trauma, as well as sports injuries, for our country’s soldiers, including those injured in Iraq and Afghanistan.  He also served as Deputy Commander (second in charge) for the 212th Combat Support Hospital, in charge of over 250 soldiers, doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel.  He was invited by the Hungarian Surgeon General to provide instruction to their military surgical team, as well as being invited by the Bulgarian military medical team to provide training for their soldiers.  During his time in the military, he became board certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and also received a subspecialty certification in Sports Medicine.

After thirteen years of dedicated service in the United States Army, and seeing the need for reconstructive surgery for combat injured soldiers, he decided to pursue another residency in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Miami.  He completed his Plastic/Aesthetic surgery residency successfully and continues to have a great relationship with the university.  He gives lectures on hand/upper extremity to residents and sponsors journal clubs for the University of Miami Plastic Surgery residency.   After graduating from his plastic surgery residency, he went on to complete a hand/microsurgery fellowship at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, TX, which has been ranked the top plastic surgery training  program in the country. During this time he worked under Dr. Rod Rohrich, who is the editor and chief for the top plastic surgery journal in the world (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal).  He also trained under  Dr. Douglas Sammer, who is a well published Mayo Clinic trained hand surgeon. During his time at UTSW he performed technically difficult surgeries such as finger replantation and microvascular free tissue transfer.  He also refined his aesthetic surgery techniques while working with some of the country’s  top aesthetic surgeons.  He has won first place in multiple research competitions and has presented his studies at national academy meetings.

Dr. Husain since that time has become board certified in Plastic surgery, in addition to being board certified in Orthopaedic Surgery, and subspecialty certified in Sports Medicine.  He has written several book chapters and has many published studies. His professional interests are primarily aesthetic and hand surgery.  His hobbies include boot camp training, snowboarding, weight lifting,  running, and travel.

In summary, Dr. Husain brings a wealth of experience to his office and is looking forward to providing only the top most quality of care and ultimate satisfaction to his patients.
