About Shane Hendon


Dr. Shane Hendon has more than a decade of experience in his specialty, Gastroenterology, most recently in North Carolina. He chose to become part of the SoutheastHEALTH digestive health team because of the opportunity to be in clinic and also do Gastroenterology procedures, which he finds appealing.

In his free time, Dr. Hendon says “it’s all about the outdoors – hiking, backpacking, mountain biking and fishing. Southeast Missouri is a great area to enjoy these outdoor activities.” He and his family also look forward to being closer to other family members who reside in the Paducah, KY, area.
