About Dr. Henderson

Philosophy of care

Fortunately, most patients with back or neck pain do not need surgery. I believe that my job is to lay out all of the options and have a discussion with my patient about what the best next step is. I think most patients see me as being very approachable and easy to talk to.

Why I entered medicine

I knew I wanted to be a surgeon so I could use my brain and my hands to help people. My mom was an OR nurse, so I was able to observe surgery when I was in high school. This sparked my interest in orthopedic surgery.

Community involvement

We are active with our church and numerous sports organizations with our children

Personal interests

I enjoy spending time with family and friends. We are very busy with our three daughters and all of their activities. I also enjoy cycling, golf and guitar.
