Dr. Bonasso has done five surgeries on my back and I couldn't be more pleased. His care, along with his incredible staff, have made all five a success story. I have soft bone which has complicated the healing and recovery of fusion surgery. He has done outstanding with his attention and care making me feel personally important to him as a surgeon. Great job! I can highly recommend a visit to see if your condition will qualify his services.
