TESTIMONIALS

Could not be in better hands anywhere

Sudden acute disc herniation left me totally incapacitated in Jan. 2014. Dr. Shanno saw me immediately and I woke up from surgery totally pain free and cannot even tell I ever had a problem over a year later. I am a retired Physician Assistant who worked with the Rebound staff for 20 years prior to retiring in the ED at SW Washington Medical Center. I can assure you that you could not be in better hands anywhere.

Thank you, Dr. Shanno!

I went to Dr. Shanno for a second opinion after being told by a well reviewed Portland neurosurgeon that I needed disc replacement surgery immediately. Dr. Shanno advised against surgery and suggested that the probability would be that it would heal on it's own over the next several months to a year. Within two months I was pain free and within one year I regained my strength. All is well and I am SO HAPPY to not have had unnecessary surgery. Thank you Dr. Shanno!!!

Above Excellent

If there was a score above excellent, I would give Dr. Shanno that rating. It's been 4 years since my laminectomy and I am still significantly improved. I do martial arts (thrown to the ground, twisted around, forward and back rolling, etc..) daily and have ridden multiple centuries on my recumbent trike thanks to that surgery... thanks to Dr. Shanno.
