Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Henderson had my 75 year old mother in surgery/recovery and not once did he speak with me during or the following the procedure. The surgery took considerable longer than anticipated and I was concerned. My mother felt as though she didn't matter.

I arrived at Dr. Henderson's office in near constant lower back pain aggravated by simply walking a short distance. I am now pain free and enjoying my active lifestyle. I am fortunate to have had such a talented surgeon whose manner and professionalism are outstanding.
