After a CT scan revealed a bone spur on my cervical vertebrae was pushing into my spinal cord
I was referred to the top neurosurgeon in my area. He ordered an MRI and went over his
recommendation for surgery, then told me he would not treat me because the surgery was too
risky. and I could end up paralyzed. The problem was without surgery there was a high probability I would end up paralyzed. I consulted with several more surgeons and no two could
agree on a procedure and all were afraid of the risks involved. The last surgeon told me no one
in my area had the skill to perform the surgery I needed, and that I should choose a neurosurgeon connected to a University of Miami Hospital. Using sites like this I researched
to select the most skilled neurosurgeon of the group and Dr. Shaya stood out from the rest.
I was able to get an appointment very quickly and we were seen within 10 minutes of our
arrival. Dr. Shaya had already studied my MRI and had a treatment plan that he went over with us in great detail. He then patiently answered all of our questions and encouraged us to call if we
thought of anything else. We also discussed the potential risks that were so intimidating to the
previous surgeons I saw. Dr. Shaya exhibited confidence in his skill and experience to give me
a successful outcome. We knew after this initial meeting that God had answered our prayers
and brought me to the best doctor possible. Dr. Shaya's treatment plan involved two separate
surgeries to protect the spinal cord and were a complete success with no complications. The severe pain was gone and full function restored to my affected arm. During my hospital stay
Dr. Shaya was personally in charge of my care and saw me daily. I feel blessed to have had
Dr. Shaya take an interest in my problem and want to help me. He is truly worthy of the awards
and all of the acclaim he has received.

After visiting dozens of other doctors, no one was able to help me. I have a rare disease which made my case difficult and most doctors are afraid to address it. Dr. Shaya took one look at my MRI and found the problem immediately. The surgery was scheduled quickly. We did a couple of temporary surgeries to see if the permanent surgery would work. Sure enough after the permanent surgery I am a completely different person. I had been a home body for a little over a year because of the pain and now I am pain free and doing excellent. Dr. Shaya truly is my hero. I know that if it wasn't for him, I would still be in excruciating pain. His staff is also very sweet and helpful. They always go the extra mile. And all the nurses that tend to you after surgery at UM are so good and caring. Highly Recommended! I suggest not even wasting your time going to any other Neurosurgeons...Dr. Mark Shaya is the one!

Over the holidays I had a minimally invasive spinal fusion/discectomy for ruptured discs between C5/C6 and C6/C7 with Dr. Shaya. I had serious pain off and on for the past two years and he was the first doctor I saw regarding this issue. I did get other opinions but went with Dr. Shaya as he explained everything very clearly, gave me great confidence in the diagnosis and recommendation and was flexible in scheduling and getting this done. The surgery went spectacularly well and 6 weeks out I am already back in the gym doing light exercise every day and feel no pain at all. Thanks Dr. Shaya!

I had acdf surgury in early Nov on c5-c7. I am 57 years old. My discs have been herniated for over 20 years. I have arthritis, spinal stenosis, bone spurs and migraines. I was experiencing severe neck pain and could not funtion daily activitys at all. This surgury was long over due. I live in Boca Raton. It was worth the long drive. Dr Shaya is a highly skilled surgeon. I am so happy that I chose him. I am pain free. I finally have my life back. Its remarkable how good I feel 6 weeks after surgury.
