As one of the leading endoscopic spine surgeons in the Western Hemisphere, Dr. Shen has created a protocol for his endoscopic procedures called enVision Spine Surgery.
Endoscopic spine surgery is considered the ultimate in minimally invasive spine surgery – or as it is typically called, the least invasive spine surgery.
"First-rate, excellent patient manners. He listens very well and has a great attitude. I am the type of patient who researches issues, and usually understands them. I also explain my situation thoroughly and have lots of questions. Dr. Shen walked me through my MRI and answered all of my questions. I am VERY excited about the thought of having no more pain in my lower back from stenosis. He assured me he can and will fix my issue! I walked out fist-pumping... I will follow up after my surgery."
"Dr. Shen deserves a million-star review, five doesn't do him justice. This is a doctor who remembers what the ultimate goal is and that's the patient. He performed surgery on my daughter and because of his skill and wonderful, caring bedside manner, she is now thriving. His assistant, Mary Jo, is a Godsend and is on top of her game. I was one of those people who cringed at any back surgery and Dr. Shen has changed my outlook completely. I highly recommend if you have any issues that require surgery contact, Dr. Shen. This is a man with unsurpassed abilities and the best thing is that he cares, he really cares."
"Dr. Shen is truly amazing. I just got home from surgery. I had a cyst at the L5S1 of my lower spine. All other doctors' opinions were to avoid this major surgery that was going to require removing part of my hip and a fusion to get to the cyst. He was able to do it with robotics. Removed the cyst and I am relieved of all pain. He had a great bedside manner and was very informative. I would refer anyone to him he works wonders. Thank you, Dr.Shen."
"Dr. Shen is absolutely an amazing surgeon. My chronic pain is gone in my neck after years of severe pain. Dr. Shen performed a fusion on my C5-6 and replaced my C6-7 with a donor vertebrae. His bedside manner is wonderful. Dr. Shen even called me at home a few days later to check on me. I am truly grateful to Dr. Shen for giving back to me a pain-free neck."
"Very impressed with Dr. Shen and his staff. I would definitely recommend him if you need to have back surgery...Appreciated the fact that he took the time to personally call me to make sure I was doing ok...Thank you, Dr. Shen, for everything."
"A master of his craft. I just had surgery yesterday. He, along with his staff went above and beyond to be sure I felt comfortable and safe. People come from all over the world to see Dr. Shen. If you need spine surgery he is worth the trip. This is the first day my pain level is low in over a year."
"Dr. Shen was awesome. I am pain-free after being able to walk no more than 20-30 yards without stopping and sitting or bending. He was able to do surgery without fusion. Loved his bedside manner. He called me on Sunday to check on me. His staff was great. The nurse was available to answer questions. Highly recommend."
"Dr. Shen performed spinal fusion on me. My surgery was 100 percent successful. He called me twice at home the week after my surgery to check on me. He came highly recommended and I'm so grateful to him for giving me my life back. I could not give a higher recommendation!"
"Went with my husband who has spinal stenosis and degenerative disk disease to have a consult with Dr. Shen yesterday and we could not be happier with how thorough and compassionate Dr. Shen and his team were. I am not someone who rates doctors based on their bedside manner. Personally, I don’t care how nice you or your office are. I care about your track record as a surgeon and your surgical patient outcomes. So, judging on Dr. Shen’s outstanding surgical outcome track record and extremely thorough bedside manner, you would be missing out not having a consultation."
Disc herniation occurs when the interior “jelly” of the disc pushes through the tougher exterior and irritates nearby nerves, resulting in pain that ranges from mild to severe.
If you have myelopathy, you have experienced a severe compression to your spinal cord. It is typically a gradual process with the degenerative changes linked to aging.
Spinal stenosis results in thickening of the ligaments, formation of bone spurs, and deterioration of the disc material. As a result, the spinal canal narrows and pinches the nerves.
Dr. Jien Shen is a world-renowned leader in endoscopic spine surgery and disc regeneration.
