Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

According to Dr. Bonner, the inherent privilege of practicing medicine is the incessant challenge to acquire and synthesize ever-expanding information and evidence. An integral responsibility of being a physician and a surgeon is staying at the top of your game, whether in the office or the operating room setting. He also believes you truly need to treat your patients like they are family and friends. When it comes to surgical interventions, Dr. Bonner stresses that vetting new procedures based on scientific methodology and not commercial hype is an important component to his responsibility as a physician.Read more

Dr. Bonner and Sabrinia Gill were wonderful. Both took the time to explain ( in great detail) what was going on with my shoulder and the type of surgery I would require. My surgery was a success, and so was my recovery! I am so grateful he was recommended to me!
in Virginia Beach, VA |
Thank you Dr. Bonner for taking care of me and my family any time I call with on orthopedic issue. I always recommend you to others. You saved my sons athletic career.

I had two shoulder surgeries with Dr. Bonner within a 28 month period. Everything about him and the surgeries was professional and my quality of life is much better because of him and his PA, Sabrina Gill. He tried to help me avoid surgery, however, when it became inevitable he did not sugar coat the fact that surgery was necessary and it was scheduled in a timely manner and I felt informed and confident at all times. I am thankful that Dr. Bonner was my surgeon and highly recommend him.

I learned of Dr Bonner when he repaired my daughter's ACL, and was so impressed with him and the staff. When it came time for my rotator cuff repair, I wanted no other surgeon to even look at me. He keeps up on the latest techniques, is very thorough, and although he is very busy, takes the time to make you feel as if you are his number one priority. I would not think of hesitating in my recommendation of Dr. Bonner.
in Virginia Beach, VA |
Dr. Bonner is the best! I had urgent MPFL reconstruction surgery on my right knee and he fit me in right away (within a weekend!). He is the nicest guy around and really cares about the whole person. I'm so thankful he did my surgery. Each pre and post operation appointments went smoothly with his accommodating staff and warm atmosphere. I 100% recommend him.
in Virginia Beach, VA |
Dr. Bonner came highly recommended to me and for good reason. He was very thorough and took all the time necessary to explain all my options for ACL surgery. His assistant, Sabrenia Gill was also wonderful. My surgery and recovery were a breeze. I had very little pain and now less than 5 months after surgery you have to look hard to find the scars. Wait time at all my pre surgery and follow up appointments was very minimal. I would highly recommend Dr. Bonner and his assistant to anyone.
in Chesapeake, VA |
Dr. Bonner was highly recommend by my primary care physician and physical therapist and with good reason. He is not only highly skilled technically, but is friendly, caring and takes as much time as necessary to speak with you. I also appreciated the time he took after my surgery to explain to my husband everything he had to do in a way my husband could understand.
in Norfolk, VA |
I have been with me for four shoulder surgeries and each time I was very pleased with the professional work he did and my fast recovery time. Also his staff is number one in my book especially his PA MS. Gill. They both work well together both in the office and in the operating room.
Norfolk, VA |
Excellent surgeon. Rotator cuff surgery. Well organized, knowledgable, excellent results.
in Virginia Beach, VA |
Chronically long wait times that average between 90 minutes and 2 1/2 hours after your scheduled appointment are all you remember from your seeing Bonner. This is the case even with morning appointments where an 11:20AM appointment leads to you being seen by Bonner mid afternoon. When you tell them you are leaving after 2 hrs. the staff will insist that you were next and about to be taken. Wait times in an examining room average an additional hour. Only a retiree can afford to wait out the delay
in Chesapeake |
Very professional, I have been very athletic my entire life and all of sudden I rupture my patella tendon. One of the worst knee injuries you can get. Dr. Bonner and his staff reassured me that life wasn't over. He kept me positive and told me with hard work I could be back out there playing again. I gained about 95 to 98 percent of my range motion back. From no movement to upper 90 percentile I would say that is pretty successful. I would suggest him to anyone considering knee surgery.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
