More about Dr. Ai Mukai
Thank you for your interest in Texas Orthopedics. I wanted to take the opportunity to explain a little about my philosophy and style. I am a Physiatrist, or a physician who specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Since I am not a surgeon, my focus is on getting people better without surgery. I also know when my patients should go to surgery and I try to explain why when those situations come up. I am blessed to have many surgical specialists in the group so when you do need surgery, I know who I should send you to for that body part or procedure. My main goal is to focus on what you want to be able to do in your life – whether it is playing with your children or being able to play golf without as much pain, I am here to help you attain your goals. I believe that you deserve to learn what is going on in your body so you can make the best decision for you. What is right for one patient may not be right for another. I want you to choose how aggressive or conservative you want to be and want you to help me decide on the most appropriate treatment plan for you. Part of the team approach is also working with other physicians. I make sure that your primary care doctors and other relevant specialists are “in the loop” about your condition and how we are treating it. I try to use as little medications for as short a time period as possible because of potential interactions and side effects. The most important part in treating muscle, bone, and nerve conditions is to make the correct diagnosis. I spend most of my time during your first visit listening to your history and performing a good physical exam. I augment that information with xrays and advanced imaging like MRIs as needed. I am lucky to have x-ray and MRI facilities available at Texas Orthopedics, which allows me to communicate with the radiology technician to get the most helpful information possible. I also provide injections in the office and injections at the surgery center under special x-ray guidance. The injections under xray are reserved for injections that need special attention and care like ones near the spine, and for situations when the diagnosis is unclear. I routinely examine people under x-ray to identify the painful area before injecting them if the diagnosis is unclear. I also use diagnostic testing like EMG/NCS, which is a test to see how well your muscles and nerves are working to give you information about the severity and location of the injury. I believe strongly in individualized care and my physical therapists also feel the same way. I like working with the therapists at Texas Orthopedics because they are passionate about what they do and we are in constant dialogue about how to best treat a patient. I see this as a team effort in trying to evaluate you properly and treating you the best way we know how – so you get better in the shortest amount of time possible. I don’t believe in protocols and “cookie cutter approach” for physical therapy. Many patients have told me that although they have had PT elsewhere, they were able to get better more quickly with our therapists. I frequently tell my patients that finding the right therapist, or the right physician for that matter, is like dating. You have to be able to trust the each other and get something positive out of the relationship. I hope that I am able to help you play an active role in healing yourself, and I thank you for considering me as your physician.
