Dr. Khader Shamieh, MD

Orthopedic Spine Surgery | Male | 38 years old

In 2010 I was run over by an SUV and seriously injured. I was in ICU for two weeks. While my accident almost killed me, it also made me a more compassionate person, and a better surgeon. When I tell my patients I understand how they feel, it's not just something they told me to say in med school. I really do I understand the fear, frustration and anxiety associated with a major medical trauma. Will I walk again? Will I ever get better? Will this pain ever go away? Of all of the training I've received, the best lessons I've learned started under the wheels of a Cadillac Escalade. When I tell a patient, "I've been there," they can rest assured that I really have. Because of my experiences, I'm passionate about how my practice delivers treatment to my patients. Read more

I would certainly recommend Dr. Shamieh to friends, and have recommended him numerous times. He was professional, patient and accessible-all traits that are appreciated when one is in pain. My outcome was very good, and I attribute this good outcome to Dr. Shamieh's surgery and the excellent PT I received at Movement Science Center. Highly recommend both.

I was referred for a second set of eyes. The first visit he said one thing that gave me hope, but the second visit was the complete opposite. There was no rhyme or reason to what occurred with him. Being charged in advance and then filing my insurance, I was over charged and yet have to see a refund after nearly a year! I was also told My back is worse than yours.
