      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.
