Dr. Samuel A. Hughes, MD is FANTASTIC. I will have my 2nd spine surgery with him on [date], and although scared, I have full confidence that he will do the best job possible.

*Dr. Hughes was the only consultant to completely review all tests - not only the reports, but the images themselves, which revealed much that the reports lacked. By virtue of his thoroughness, he was able to clearly diagnose a problem that was obscured by other pathology, and direct me to appropriate care.

*Dr. Hughes is very profecional and explained to me not only one option, but also another option if need it. He will contact me by phon after my tests are done and give me my answer. I was impressed that he will give me phon consult so I don't have to find someone to drives me 40 miles for my answers. I really appreciate *Dr. Hughes. Thank you.

Born and raised in San Diego, California, I have lived on both coasts and feel at home in the Pacific Northwest. I came to medicine a little late, after studying Latin and Greek at the University of Pennsylvania. Seeing my parents' experience as both my grandmothers passed away rekindled in me an interest in medicine and the service it can provide. Neurosurgery allows me to channel my interest in humanity into medical practice. Our nervous system translates a sea of electrical impulses into our very thoughts and actions and caring for those delicate structures provides me a deep and abiding fulfillment.

About my practice

As a neurosurgeon, I treat a variety of brain and spine conditions. Two things I like about working at Kaiser Permanente are our comprehensive mandate and the wide range of conditions our members face. Whether it be traumatic injuries, tumors, or even degenerative conditions that compromise a patient's quality of life, my colleagues and I do all we can to provide high quality care in a timely, appropriate fashion.

How I thrive

I am the father of three young children. Raising children seems to me a lot like practicing medicine. It means caring for others before yourself, planning for misfortune while hoping for success, and enjoying others' success as much as, if not more than, your own.
