In this week’s Physician of the Week, we are excited to feature Dr. Sassan Hassassian, M.D., an expert in pain management who treats patients in Manassas, Virginia. Dr. Hassassian, who joined National Spine & Pain Centers in 2012, previously served as the Director of the Division of Pain Management at the Center for Advanced Orthopedics and Pain Management in Ashburn, Virginia. With an impressive background and track record of excellence in treating patients with interventional pain management techniques, Dr. Hassassian appreciates every opportunity to provide personalized, high quality care to patients in pain and devises comprehensive treatment plans to relieve their pain.

Betty Thomas, a patient of Dr. Hassassian:

In addition to being brilliant, he takes the time to listen to you. He did a great job of explaining the more complicated aspects of each treatment to me. Together, we were able to make the right decisions for my health.”

Betty suffered many years from chronic low back pain. After surgery, injections, and radiofrequency neurotomy could not provide sustained pain relief, Dr. Hassassian recommended peripheral nerve stimulation which ended up being the treatment that got her back to full function. (To continue reading Betty’s full story about how Dr. Hassassian helped her, click here.)
