This content was provided by Dr. Shin "When I am entrusted to provide care for my patients, it is an intimate experience. My patients share personal details regarding how their spine limits their relationships, they open up about their doubts and fears, and they express their hopes and expectations about restoring their life. Each story is unique, and the many options for treatment are chosen based on each person's situation.
If a patient chooses to have an operation, then an additional office appointment is made with the patient and family a few days before surgery to answer all questions in detail. The family is engaged in order for them to learn how they be most helpful. If hospitalization is required, then we provide a private hospital room with an extra bed for a family member to stay overnight. I visit with each patient once or twice a day while in the hospital, and all of my patients have access to my cell phone. It is an honor to share my patients' path towards recovery."
