I thought Dr Henderson was great like everyone else,HOWEVER,after my SECOND surgery with him, where a fragment was missed, I wasn't treated well by him. I said I was in severe pain after SECOND Surgery and I asked for NRI, not him. He was threatened,said wouldn't write more disability notes, and said to LTD I was better and should find PT work. My LTD was dropped,Im seeing neurosurgeon who wants new MRI,,I've wasted 7 years of my life because these drs can't get a surgery right. Very upset.

Dr. Henderson is incredible! Brilliant surgeon that also has great bedside manors. I could write a book on how he was a God sent for my wife who had what turned out to be a 3 1/2" tumor inside her spinal column. He removed every bit of it and fused her back together.

Dr. Henderson saved my life and gave me my quality of life back. He performed an exceptional surgery that was complicated by small vertebrae in my cervical spine without any problems. He is deeply invested in each patient, is brilliant beyond all measures, and is the best physician, surgeon, and practitioner I have ever met. There are no better hands to put your life in than his. One of the greatest people I have had the privilege to meet.

To say Dr. Fraser Henderson saved my life would be a severe understatement. He allowed me to take my life BACK. His care and compassion for those with Ehlers Danlos is unmatched in the medical field. He is the epitome of what a doctor should be- kind, compassionate, does no harm and truly has the best interests of the patient in his heart and mind at all times. He treats more than just your spine and brain; he sees each person as a whole and does all he can to improve your quality of life.

Dr. Henderson is a Godsend. He gave me back a quality of life that I thought was lost to me forever. I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome - Hypermobility Type and he understands the devastation that the syndrome can do to the spine inside and out. He performed surgery on me and within two days I was feeling relief from a variety of neurological symptoms. I would recommend him to anyone. He is a very wonderful and caring physician. Thank you, Dr. Henderson!

It wasn't until the age of 41 that I was finally diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. I just recently had surgery at Shadygrove with Dr. Henderson. It was the third surgery with Dr. Henderson. Dr. Henderson came in on my last day at Shadygrove. He brought in every nurse he saw in the hallway and he proceeded to discuss the disease process of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. He discussed the pain and why there are so many symptoms associated with it. He is a true blessing of God. I thank you.
