Dr. Shane McGowan specializes in spine surgery. His original interest came from watching how much his father’s quality of life improved after orthopedic and spine surgeries. Dr. McGowan likes spine surgery because it is an amazing field that has direct impact on peoples’ lives: it keeps people walking, improves their pain, and helps people live complete and full lives.  He enjoys boating, fishing, hiking, camping, and woodworking with his family. He also enjoys sports. He played college baseball and spent 13 years playing football and basketball.
