I was pleased to see The Leader-Herald's extensive article on Dr. Jian Shen and his treatments for back pain, including minimally invasive spine surgery. As a member of the staff at St. Mary's Healthcare, I frequently receive positive comments about Dr. Shen's surgical expertise and his compassionate nature with patients and hospital staff.
I would like to thank The Leader Herald for helping to make people aware of the unique and accessible health-care service that Dr. Shen brings to our community. For me, it is equally important for readers to note that Dr. Shen performs his innovative spinal surgeries in Amsterdam at St. Mary's Healthcare, an important fact that was regrettably missing from the description of the locations where this sort of surgery is performed.
