About Me

I try to treat patients in the same way that I would want to be treated, or want my family to be treated.  I believe in honest, open communication.  My goal is to provide information so the patient and their family can make the best decision for them.  I always encourage second opinions if a patient has any uncertainty about the best options.

What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Henn, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

After visiting Dr. Henn with some major back pain, he ordered an MRI and found my problem. He discussed the procedure needed to correct my problem in quite detail and we also discussed the risk involved with back surgery. I had a spinal fusion on February 25 and was able to go home from the hospital on February 26. I had a spinal fusion previously in 2012 and was in the hospital 4 days. Using Dr. Henn's new procedure I was in the hospital one day and home the next. With God's help everything went as Dr. Henn planned and I was released on May 16. Thank you Dr. Henn for the professionalism of you and your staff in giving me a new life. Keep up the good work and THANKS again.

Dr. Henn performed a cervical disectomy and fusion. I went to him for a 2nd opinion after an initial diagnosis. He confirmed it and I chose him for the surgery and am pleased that I did. The surgery went well and I appreciate his communication both before and after the surgery. I would highly recommend his staff and him.

Very good communicator. Before my spine surgery, he explained what he was going to do. Surgery went very well, Dr. Henn came to see me in the hospital 3 times, which isvery meaningful to me, I felt he cared about my condition after the surgery. I am now 4 weeks out, have no pain in my legs and getting stronger everyday.

Went in after falling on the ice in Dec. 2016. After about a year and a half I was losing my motor skills. Could barely walk. Was walking with a walker. Went to Dr. Henn and after a consultation he thought he could help me After the surgery immediately I could tell a difference. I'm 3 months out and am rid of the walker and cane. It's not perfect but compared to where I was I'll take it. My goal is to swing a golf club again and I feel I will. Dr. Henn his assistant and his staff are excellent.

I am an 82 year old man who has had serious back issues for over 25 years. Also have been on prescription pain meds all that time too. Since this last back surgery in January, the surgery was so good & since recovery, I no longer have to take those meds. A big plus. My 3rd surgery by Dr. Henn & I tell my family & friends how good he is & have total trust in him. I know he is there for me if I develop any more back issues as i age. Am so glad I found him. Have total trust in his decisions.

I have had too many surgeries in the past (Only 1 by Dr Henn 7 years ago)and I have to say Dr. Henn has the most efficient and patient friendly process of all my procedures. The nursing staff all understood their specific job, they explained everything to me as it was happening. The procedure seems to have accomplished our goals and I am a smiling patient.

I have had over 15 surgeries in my lifetime. All have been successful. That's because I take the time to research and ask other doctors who they would use under similar circumstances. Dr. Henn was described as the "doctor for other doctors". His staff is very polite, efficient, and respectful. He cares about his patients and goes the extra mile for excellence. Dr. Henn is no ordinary surgeon, but the best of the best. I highly recommended this extremely skilled and truly caring physician

4 months ago I underwent surgery to alleviate pain caused by deneragative disc disease in my neck. I returned to work after 2 weeks and now participate in an active lifestyle with no pain. After consulting with 3 physicians, I choose Dr. Henn based on his reputation among his peers, the initial office visit (friendly efficient staff) and the personal interaction formed as Dr. Henn took the right amount of time to explain the disease process and the surgical procedure.

I feel he is the best doctor, he goes over everything detail by detail. Shows you the test and results, explains the results in a way you would understand and let’s you ask questions. Very good surgery manners and post surgery goes over details for you of what he did, I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr Henn operated and corrected my spinal stenosis a little less than 3 weeks ago. He told me what to expect and so far has been right on. He also cautioned me about the risks of which I have experienced none. I had immediate relief of the pain from my back down through my hip on down the leg. Surgery was on Monday and I really turned the corner that first Friday showing improvement every day thereafter. I feel like I could do anything now but have another 2 1/2 weeks of limitations.

Dr. Henn is compassionate & really listens to his patients. He takes time explaining options & puts to rest any fears you might have no matter how small & came highly recommended by my physician. I went to see Dr. Henn because of excruciating pain while walking. He reviewed my X-rays with me & explained the best course of action to correct my pain was anterior lumbar fusion. Dr. Henn checked in with me everyday until I was released from the hospital. The day after surgery the pain was gone.

I want to share my positive experience with Dr. Jeffrey Henn and staff. I first visited with Dr. Henn early June 2018 for a second opinion for my lower back which was creating excruciating pain and affecting my ability to walk. Dr. Henn performed minimally invasive back surgery on me mid July 2018. As of today, I am pain free and able to walk without difficulty. I am very, very grateful to Dr. Henn and his staff, especially Jeanne.
