I went to see Dr. O because I had terrible leg pain and could barely walk. He took the time to explain that I needed a fusion and the reasons why. He answered my lengthy list of questions.

I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. Surgery went better than I could have asked for. Dr O’Shaughnessy is professional, kind and genuine. You can tell he cares about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone who needed back surgery.
