In 2004, Hussar began a study involving thermal imaging technology. The medical applications of thermographic imaging studies were developed by Hussar, who is an expert in the fields of necrotic dental bone surgery and Lyme disease. He was directly involved in a study that looked at developing an affordable, non-radiological clinical imaging device.

Hussar has worked in several aspects of medicine, in particular chronic pain. He specializes in work involving extensive oral surgery to remove cavitations from patients with Lyme disease.
