Shane's Story

Retired Army Ranger Shane Jernigan is again able to do what he loves, thanks to the help of Jason Souza, MD.

A 2018 amputation left Shane with lingering pain. But since reaching out to The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and undergoing a surgery to rewire the nerves in his leg, Shane has returned to living his life to the fullest.

“Now I can go out and help other veterans,” shares Shane, an avid skier who teaches people with amputations to snowboard and ski bike and trains soldiers to prepare them for special missions.
