I am a failed back fusion patient and have had many other ortho surgeries. Dr. Herndon show great compassion, but professionalism as well. You will be a team, you agree to follow her protocols and you will find her trying everything to find a solution to your pain. She has a small office with hands on care to all her patients. I have referred many people to her, and all are still seeing her.

I am most pleased with the treatment and care given by Dr. Herndon. I have severe scoliosis which has caused tremendous pain. Each time I have been to Dr. Herndon I have had relief. The last time I was in for treatment it has lasted me a very long time.

I have experience in treating all types of pain.  I specialize in spinal and joint pain as well as soft tissue pain.

  •  Our goal is excellence in all we do.

Dr. Herndon says...

I have specialty training in pain management and  I also understand what it is like to live with chronic pain.

I suffered a gymnastics accident early in life  and injured my neck. I had surgery but the pain would not go away.  Since then it has been my motivation to help others through the process of mastering control over pain.

As part of your pain plan I can safely perform all of the latest procedures in my outpatient surgery center and you will have complete comfort as procedures are performed.
