About Dr. Hubbard
Dr. Kareem Hubbard is a dedicated physician and graduate of the Temple University Hospital/Mid-Atlantic Spine and Pain Physicians ACGME accredited pain fellowship. While in fellowship he expanded his growing knowledge of how to diagnose and manage acute and chronic pain. The Temple University/Mid-Atlantic Spine and Pain Physicians fellowship is a multi-disciplinary, private practice model. Fellowship consists of medication management, teaching the proper techniques and indications for performing peripheral and spinal injections. Additionally, fellows performed and interpreted electromyographic and nerve conduction studies. More advanced interventional procedures taught as part of the curriculum included neurostimulation, intrathecal pump trials and implantation.
His residency training was completed at Medstar/Georgetown University Hospital/National Rehabilitation Hospital in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation(PM&R). National Rehabilitation Hospital is a free standing 100 bed rehabilitation hospital. The patient population consisted of individuals with functional disabilities caused by spinal cord and brain injuries, stroke, arthritis, amputation, multiple sclerosis, post-polio syndrome, sports injuries, and other neurological and orthopedic conditions. Residents helped create and implement treatment plans for the inpatient population, including active participation and guidance in rehabilitation therapy. Further responsibilities included staffing our weekly outpatient musculoskeletal/sports medicine clinic where there was a strong emphasis in the teaching and use of musculoskeletal ultrasound. He is board certified in the field of PM&R and board certified in pain medicine. His objective is to treat musculoskeletal, acute and chronic pain using clinical assessment, in a multi-disciplinary approach, with the use of minimal invasive measures when necessary.
