Patient Comments (3)
I would have never had the surgery, except he was so confidant & promised me that I would be able to walk better. My walking is worse since the surgery. When it was evident I wasn't going to improve, he said I needed to follow up with a pain specialist, which I was already seeing. He had no other suggestions.

All I can tell anyone that reads this is that I could not finish teaching my classes by the end of the school day without ridiculous pain. I had to do something... I was told Dr. Shannon was a no nonsense Dr. .... If he can fix the problem he will tell you... if he can't, he will tell you. They were right... he was informative and friendly. I scheduled an appointment. I would have never thought in a million years that I would be looking forward to back surgery. I am so glad I did. Pain free!!!
