What Patients are Saying About Dr. Joseph A. Shehadi, MD, FAANS, FACS

  • My neck was broken (C1, C2), arm, shoulder, back, ribs, leg and ankle just to name a few. My wife was going over my injuries with me and it was then she informed me of the great Doctor that had spent so much time with her and my mother going over the possibilities for treating my broken neck... Doctor Shehadi told my wife that an external fixation device (Halo) would be the easiest treatment, how ever he could operate, opening up my neck and placing a screw through the broken vertebrae. Dr. Shehadi explained to my wife that this surgery as risky, however he felt confident it would be a great success... the surgery was a great success and now that I have gotten the chance to know Dr. Shehadi through my follow up appointments, I could not have asked for a better, more down to earth, and generally concerned Doctor... I have made a full recovery and gladly say I have no pain nor negative affects from this procedure.

  • After being hit by a car on my motorcycle at around 60 mpg, Dr. Shehadi and his staff put my broken neck back together. Everything works thanks to Dr. Shehadi. Many people I have talked to has said he is the best. This includes my family doctor. Thank you Dr. Shehadi for giving me my life back as a normal person.

  • My whole life was affected and changed for the worse due to the constant back pain. I was then referred to see Dr. Shehadi and on July 19, 2010 he performed a lumbar fusion on L2 – L5 of my spine. My pain is gone and my blood pressure is down. I sleep at night, exercise and go for walks. I am losing weight and I can clean my entire house in two hours instead of it taking all day! I feel great and the last time I felt this good was years ago. This is just amazing to me. I feel better every day. My life is great now and I feel fantastic.
    — S.H.
  • Before Dr. Shehadi I lived with pain that was so unbearable I couldn’t function in my daily life. I had gone to five different doctors for help and they all treated me for things I didn’t have. I finally found a doctor that referred me to Dr. Shehadi and it took less than one month to feel almost 100% better. I can now move better than ever before without pain and my mood has improved 100%. I would recommend Dr. Shehadi to anyone in need of back or spine surgery!
