Pain Management Physician

Hi! I’m Dr. Hou

Saiyun “Sam” Hou, M.D., Ph.D. is an orthopaedic spine surgeon turned pain management physician. Dr. Hou is board certified in both Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and Pain Medicine. He completed his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Baylor College of Medicine and received his ACGME-accredited pain fellowship training at the University of Texas at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Dr. Hou is excited to be a part of the comprehensive pain management program available at PainCare of San Diego because he likes to focus on getting to the cause of the patient’s pain, rather than merely treating a specific symptom.

When he’s not treating patients, Dr. Hou enjoys hiking, swimming, traveling and spending time with his wife and four children.
