He works very closely with his colleagues in physical medicine and rehabilitation, physical therapy, chiropractic therapy and pain management intervention to design the best comprehensive treatment plan for his patients. When surgery is indicated, he utilizes minimally invasive techniques, non-fusion alternatives and same-day-outpatient procedures that allow for faster healing and recovery.
Dr. Abdulhamid is certified in total cervical disc replacement, or artificial disc replacement, in minimally invasive Coflex® procedure, in minimally invasive discectomy and in intraoperative navigation and image-guided surgery. He is also one of a handful neurosurgeons in the United States who is trained and certified in the Sonosculpt® procedure that utilizes high frequency ultrasonic vibration for precise removal of bone spurs and discs compressing the spinal cord or the nerves.
