Dr. Buono is one of the most skilled, kind, caring & compassionate doctors I've ever met! We first met him during a 2nd opinion appointment for my daughter-in-law who had already undergone 2 previous surgeries in the past year by an area orthopedic to address a severely herniated disc at the L5/S1 level in her spine. She was in excruciating pain and completely disabled. Dr. Buono operated on her & fixed the problem. He and his whole surgical team was an answer to prayer!

I had back surgery Feb 2018. I had taken a few falls b/c I was not able to lift my toes - (drop foot). PT was not helping so I met with Dr. Buono. The surgery was minimally invasive and I was back to work in a week. A month later I was on a cruise vacation and I can wiggle my toes and no longer fall down. I am very grateful to Dr. Buono and his staff. If you have this condition it is important that you get help quickly so that it can be corrected before it becomes chronic.

Dr. Bionic is an excellent person as well as a skilled surgeon. He cares about his patients and speaks with the family after surgery. Had surgery on May 10, 2018 a laminectomy and screw fusion and am having a successful recovery and am back to work. Everything he promised, he delivered. Highly recommend

Dr Buono is a knowledgeable skilled surgeon who truly cares! He is trustworthy, answers questions and explains issues in detail. I had a successful surgery in 2011 with Dr Buono and most recently Disc surgery with nerve involvement repair on 10-31-17. It is a pleasure dealing with the office staff. Jacob was a great source of info and encouragement!

Dr Buono put an artificial disk in my neck and I was back to work the next day. I had other Doctors saying they were not sure if they could do the disk and may have to do fusion. Dr Buono explained the procedure completely and it went exactly as he said. I highly recommend, that if you need this type of procedure that you get his opinion. I just wanted to add that I do not have a desk job, as I work in the construction field.
