Dr. Bono earned his medical degree at Nova Southeastern University in South Florida, where he was taught a holistic approach to patient care. Following the completion of a residency program in orthopedic surgery in Michigan, Dr. Bono received advanced training in spine surgery by completing a neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery fellowship at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Bono is board certified in orthopedic surgery by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedics, a board recognized by the Florida Board of Medicine. He has an unblemished record with the medical licensing board.

Zephyrhills, FL |
Every thing went well. I feel 100% better. My only criticism is that Dr. Bono does not spend enough time with the patient. I do recommend BioSpine.

in Spring Hill, FL |
Dr Bono did a great job on my back operation. I am still in recovery, but I m well on my way to being free of the pinched nerve from an auto accident. After the surgery the nurse and physical therapist Dr Bono office sent were great. Thank you all. Linda

From the beginning I was very scared .. I was very hesitant but for some odd reason Dr. Bono was very sure that he was going to take care of me and that made everything go smoothly. I do have to make it known that their was one person that made it really comfortable for me and my wife SYLVIE MARCIAL .. every question we had she was there and on top of it ..we couldn't ask for more..awesome! She is a great asset to Biospine..very caring and supportive! Thank you Sylvie!! Your friend Mark Claudio

I was pleased in every way with Dr. Bono. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends that need spine surgery.

I LOVE Dr. Bono and the staff are the most outstanding people I have ever met. First, my husband had Dr. Bono perform back surgery 7 weeks ago, and then I had the same surgery May 3rd. We are both 66 years old. We have been treated with respect, dignity, and loving care. These people are wonderful and I cannot thank them enough for giving our lives back. We are both widowed and found each other 4 years ago and were married 1 year to the day we met. We are able to enjoy our lives now!

Dr. Bono was knowledgable and straight to the point. All the staff in Spring Hill were great! I'll be scheduling my procedure with Dr. Bono and no one else very soon! Thanks for all your help :)
in Spring Hill, FL |
Dr. Bono's surgical experience and knowledge gave me the confidence to have the back surgery I had been putting off for many years. I am so glad I did! This has been truly life changing for me. Thank you Dr. Bono and thank you to everyone at BioSpine, from the staff at the front desk of the Spring Hill office to the surgical team you were all so kind, caring and helpful. I tell everyone I meet that there is help for anyone with back problems. That help can be found at BioSpine.

Dr. Bono and his entire staff did a fantastic job , I have already had a friend meet with Dr. Bono only 3 weeks after having my surgery . Keep up the great work and professionalism !
in Tampa, FL |
Comprehensive and efficient pre-surgical process, excellent outcome and rapid post operative recovery. I would recommend Dr. Bono and the Biospine without hesitation.
in The Villages, FL |
I have already recommended Dr. Bono to SO MANY people! He is such a genuine and positive person.
in Stuart, FL |
Dr. Bono convinced my 76-yr old mother to have her second lumbar spinal fusion to supposedly provide pain relief. He met with her once. The procedure was his sixth by 10 am. He never met with her in the following week in the hospital. The nurses did not seem surprised. No one could answer our specific questions about details of procedure beyond written records (titanium plate, screws and "cage"). She's in constant pain and wants to have his procedure reversed but no MD will oblige. 0 stars.
in Tampa, FL |
Worst experience. We are in the healthcare field and realize how unprofessional this visit was all around. Disorganization of staff aside, after an hour and a half wait, we expected more than a 4 minute visit and some decent answers to our questions. Dr. Bono never reviewed the films or MRI with us as has always been the case with every orthopedic doctor visit and we left with no clear understanding as to how the condition would progress. Will need to see another doctor to get these answers.
