Hennessy, Shuey & Schnee, Chartered Neurological Surgery
Welcome to the website for the medical offices of Dr.'s Hennessy, Shuey, & Schnee, Chartered
Thank you for visiting our site. Please call or email us if you have any questions or concerns.
Our practice was founded by the late Dr. Charles Henderson in 1965. Dr. Henderson trained in Neurosurgery at the University of Maryland. In 1967, Dr. Robert Hennessy joined Dr. Henderson and started the first neurosurgical practice based at St. Agnes Hospital.
In the 1970’s, the practice accomplished many “firsts” at St. Agnes Hospital, including intracranial aneurysm surgery and microsurgery of the brain and spine. Dr. Hennessy served as the Section Chief of Neurosurgery for many years and enjoyed an outstanding reputation during his career. He retired in 2015.
Dr. Henry Shuey joined the practice in 1979 after completing training at the University of Florida. The practice, then known as Henderson, Hennessy & Shuey, published a landmark paper in 1983 describing a series of 846 cervical foraminotomy surgeries. Dr. Shuey later succeeded Dr. Hennessy as the Section Chief, Neurosurgery, at St. Agnes.
Dr. Henderson passed in 1992 after a brief illness. Dr. Shuey enjoyed 31 years of practice as a partner and was well regarded for his surgical skill, decision making, positive personality, good humor, and hat collection. Dr. Shuey passed in 2010.
Dr. Charles Schnee started in neurosurgical practice in 1997, and joined HSS in 2009. Dr. Schnee trained in neurosurgery at University of Pennsylvania and completed a spine surgery fellowship at the University of Texas, Houston. Prior to partnering with Drs. Shuey and Hennessy, Dr. Schnee held positions as Chief of Neurosurgery at Providence St Joseph’s Medical Center; Clinical Assistant Professor at UCLA School of Medicine; Assistant Professor at University of Maryland School of Medicine; and Chief of Spinal Surgery at University of Maryland Department of Neurosurgery.
Dr Schnee is now Chief of Neurosurgery at both St Agnes Medical Center and Kernan Hospital. He is also the Chief Medical Officer at Maryland Specialty Surgical Center. Long standing patients, family members and friends, originally treated by Drs. Henderson, Hennessy, and Shuey, now entrust their care to Dr. Schnee. The practice continues to grow and offer the most modern spinal and cranial techniques available to patients from the greater Baltimore area, throughout Maryland’s Counties and Eastern Shore, Pennsylvania, Delaware, D.C. and Virginia.
