    I enjoyed my experience with this office. I felt like Dr. Ronzo listened and care during about my issues. Will definitely recommend him to family and friends. Thank you!
    I am very satisfied with the service and care I received at Bio Spine. I went in not knowing what to expect. Dr Ronzo explained my options and w chose to do the surgery. I had a herniated disc which was causing burning in my arm and my one finger was numb. The surgery would fuse dics 6 and 7. I was scheduled in no time. It went great. It is now 2 weeks and I just had my follow up visit. I have no burning in my arm. My finger is almost back to normal. I would recommend it to anyone.

    For quite some time I have been experiencing lower back pain and thought no one would be able to help me and when I saw the huge billboards everywhere my dreams came true that my insurance was accepted and I was scheduled in no time. After my MRI's were complete Dr. Ronzo told me and my husband that I had a significant problem that needed surgery on my lumbar area and how BioSpine had their own surgery center that only did back surgeries. Wow what a first class surgery center! SUCCESS!!!

    I was very scared to have cervical disc replacement surgery but looking back now I am so thankful to have been referred to Dr. Ronzo at BIOSPINE! Dr. Ronzo was so compassionate both before and after my surgery and most importantly is the outcome --- Dr. Ronzo made me feel like new and I now live without any cervical pain and better yet I am continuing to recover strength in my arm that was lost from my injury.Other physicians see my incision and comment that it is the work of a plastic surgeon

    Dr. Ronzo performed a laminectomy on me between L4-5 and L5-S1. I had been suffering from a lot of low back pain and numbness down my left leg and foot. The entire surgical process was very simple and I felt well informed and taken care of pre-, during and post-op. The surgery was successful but I have residual pain in my SI joints which is being treated with injections (also helpful). I used to hobble around like someone twice my age and now my life is almost back to normal.

    Dr. Ronzo....thank you so much for giving my father his life back. After 30 years delivering mail he could barely walk....and after consulting with many surgeons YOU were the only one that found a solution. After a 30 minute surgery, my father walks pain free....we cannot thank you enough! Loved your facility and staff.

    Dr. Ronzo says...

    The advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques used at BioSpine are significantly different than those used by other practices and produce outstanding surgical results for patients — who consistently recover in half the time of patients who undergo open back surgery.

    • Dr. Ronzo and Dr. Bono use three-quarter inch incisions to correct even complex spine disorders because they separate rather than cut the back muscle, creating minimal disturbance and speeding recovery.
    • BioSpine patients do not require hospital stays and often return to daily activities in as little as three days.
    • BioSpine procedures take less than an hour — dramatically reducing the time a patient is under anesthesia. 
    • BioSpine patients experience negligible blood loss, need fewer pain medications, have less scarring and a lower risk for post-operative infection. In the last 12 years, no patients have experienced post-operative infections.
    • Dr. Ronzo and Dr. Bono have treated more than 35,000 patients and performed more than 14,000 successful minimally invasive surgeries.
