My Approach to Care

Dr. Steven Shannon, a northern Nevada native, completed a bachelor’s of science with distinction in biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Nevada, Reno and obtained his medical doctorate at the University of Nevada School of Medicine. He completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where he received world class education and training, specifically in hip and knee replacement.

​His orthopedic trauma fellowship was completed at the world famous, R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, Maryland, which is one of the busiest trauma centers in the world. He gained the clinical and surgical experience to care for injuries, specifically severe pelvic/acetabular trauma and limb salvage using the Ilizarov technique.

After years at Mayo Clinic, Dr. Shannon joined Bryan Trauma Center to care for injured patients from across Nebraska and neighboring states.

My passion to improve the lives of my patients led to unique surgical skills to care for traumatic injuries, particularly pelvic trauma and limb salvage. These highly skilled techniques are only available in Nebraska at Bryan Trauma Center:

  • STARR Frame for percutaneous minimally invasive pelvic and acetabular surgery to improve outcomes.
  • Ilizarov limb salvage technique. This process is essentially growing a patient’s limb back that otherwise would have faced amputation.​

Dr. Shannon is also expanding Bryan clinical research activity in orthopedic trauma. He has been an author in over 40+ peer reviewed publications, national/international podium presentations and book chapters. He received the highest honor for orthopaedic trauma research, the Edwin G. Bovill Jr., MD Award for Best Paper Presented at the Orthopaedic Trauma Association 2018 Annual Meeting for his randomized prospective study on hip fractures. Due to his extensive research, Bryan Trauma Center is part of an international multicenter trauma trial called PREPARE for traumatic brain injury. Bryan Trauma Center is the only trauma center in Nebraska involved in this groundbreaking study.
