I had a condition where arthritis in my spine began to pinch off my spinal cord, and I was losing strength in my hands and legs. Dr.Shenai did a spinal fusion in my neck and relieved the pressure on my spinal cord, and my strength almost immediately started to return! Now, after physical therapy and rehab, I am 100% better than I was. Throughout the process, Dr.Shenai has provided clear explanations and focused on realistic explanations. His staff and assistants are also incredible-

Dr. Shenai did surgery on my wife in March. Before surgery a lot of numbness in hands. He did CSF. She has been in pain since having the surgery. She got a second opinion from another specialist. Her latest CT Scan shows several loose screws. One screw is not attached to anything. She now has to have the same surgery again to fix his mistakes. Not a very good surgeon.
