HOUSTON (March 20, 2012) –– Premier orthopedic and sports medicine group of North Houston, KSF Orthopaedic Center, P.A., is pleased to announce the addition of John W. Hume, MD to its team. This addition expands the center’s scope of services in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

A member of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the Texas Medical Association and the Harris County Medical Society, Hume believes in a comprehensive approach that identifies the root cause of a problem and employs the least invasive treatment available.
“I believe in the body’s tremendous ability to heal and to adapt. Working closely with my patients, we’re able to address many problems using less invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications,” said Hume.
Hume earned his medical degree from Howard University College of Medicine in Washington, DC and completed his residency in general surgery at the Washington Hospital Center in Washington and the Brooklyn Hospital Center in Brooklyn, NY.
