I had a shattered L-1 vertabrae from a highway car accident in January 2015. I was rushed to mass general and put in the hands of Dr Shin and his team. They saved my life and I am able to walk and go on with my life after being millimeters from being paralyzed. I always felt at ease from the ICU to the after care appointments. They are very attentive and professional, I never once felt scared or worried about my recovery as they treat you like a person through all stages of healing.

Four weeks out from surgery by Dr. Shin and I am amazed at my progress and my quality of life compared to the pain and suffering I endured for a very very long time. Dr. Shin and his team were unbelievable in every way - making a worrisome and dreaded necessary surgery as easy and more worthwhile than I could have ever anticipated. My family and I are amazed at every detail of attention and care.the
