Emanuel Narcis Husu


Dr. Husu was born in Arad, Romania, and although he emigrated at the age of 3 years old, continues to have a great love for his birth country and its history, culture, and language.

Dr. Husu received his bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Irvine. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Arizona School of Medicine Tucson. He then went on to complete his internship and residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

After residency, Dr. Husu completed a pain medicine fellowship in the Departments of Rehabilitation Medicine and Anesthesiology at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Lastly, he completed an addiction medicine fellowship at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

Dr. Husu currently integrates addiction medicine into his interventional pain management practice, the latter of which consists mainly of spine medicine, but also includes headache, abdominal pain, and musculoskeletal pain management. In his leisure time, he enjoys cycling, mountain biking, and studio cycling with his wife who is a pediatric hepatologist originally from Brasov, Romania.

He also maintains very strong ties with the Romanian-American community in the United States, and is thrilled any time he can return to Romania.
