Dr. Mark Hawass first got involved in arthritis and pain treatment after a car accident left him
with chronic lower back pain. He tried everything he could before finally researching on his own. He tested different therapies himself, which made his pain go from a 8-9/10 to a manageable 3-4/10. This is what led him to his training in Chronic Pain Management and to later sub specialize in Arthritis and Joint Pain Management. Challenge and hope are the two main things that inspire Dr.Mark. Learning from past struggles has shaped his life and decisions. He was able to overcome the struggles with hope of what comes afterwards. He is the medical director for Arthritis VIP Clinic and has a diploma in Chronic Pain Management from the Canadian Academy of Pain Management.
Dr. Mark started his private clinic in 2019 with the main focus of treating people with arthritis and joint pain, and now they have a success rate of over 90%. Their entire team is extremely caring and very passionate in what they do. His advice for anyone who is suffering with chronic pain is to take control of your own health. Do the research, and do not restrict yourself to what is covered by your insurance. Afterall, your health is your wealth.
