The Expert Network© celebrates its newest member, Dr. Anthony T. Yeung
Phoenix, AZ, March 29, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Dr. Anthony T. Yeung, Founder, Desert Institute for Spine Care (DISC), has joined The Expert Network©, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Dr. Yeung has been chosen as a Distinguished Doctor™ based on peer reviews and ratings, numerous recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout his career.
Dr. Yeung outshines others in his field due to his extensive educational background, numerous awards and recognitions, and career longevity. After earning his medical degree from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, he went on to complete his internship at the Good Samaritan Hospital and a residency in general and orthopedic surgery at the Maricopa County Medical Center. Before going into private practice, Dr. Yeung spent two years in the Philippines as Chief of Orthopedics for the U.S. Navy. His ambition and drive propelled him through all of his years of schooling and military service, and into his career as a top endoscopic spine surgeon.
With over 25 years dedicated to medicine, Dr. Yeung brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry, and in particular, to his area of expertise, diagnosing and treating the causes of back pain and sciatica from painful degenerative conditions of the lumbar spine. When asked why he decided to pursue a career in medicine, Dr. Yeung said:
"When we escaped communism in October 1949, we went to Tucson, Arizona, and my mother was befriended by an ENT doctor there named Dr. Jack Klein. Realizing we had no money, he gave my mother some hospital beds and became our family doctor. I decided then that I wanted to be like him because of his effect on our family and how he helped us."
Board-Certified in General Orthopedic Spine Surgery, Dr. Yeung was the first to use endoscopically guided lasers and is the developer of the FDA-approved Yeung Endoscopic Spine System (YESS™). YESS™, a form of Selective Endoscopic Discectomy™ (SED™), is a minimally invasive spine surgery technique that utilizes an endoscope to treat herniated, protruded, extruded, or degenerative discs that are a contributing factor to leg and back pain. Today, Dr. Yeung is known for his patented technique as well as the compassionate care he provides patients. Guaranteeing improvements in the patients he treats, he inspires confidence and exudes trustworthiness.
As a thought-leader in his specialty, Dr. Yeung is the author of over a hundred scientific publications on his YESS™ technique, which is taught in the private fellowship program directed by Dr. Yeung onsite at the Squaw Peak Surgical Facility in Phoenix, Arizona. Internationally renowned, Dr. Yeung is the recipient of numerous awards, including Top Doctor for 2011 by Phoenix Magazine, "100 of the Best Spine Surgeons and Specialists in America" by The Becker's Orthopedic Spine Review, and was named a "Health Care Hero" by the Phoenix Business Journal.
This vantage point gives Dr. Yeung a unique perspective from which to keep himself apprised of prevailing trends in medicine. In particular, he notes the increasing complication of dealing with insurance companies:
"I became a doctor to take care of my patients and I can’t do what I think is needed when we constantly have to look to see if the insurance will pay."
