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.

Dr. Buono is a skilled surgeon who truly cares about his patients. His kind and compassionate demeanor is commendable. He takes time to explain, advise, and reassure his patients about the procedure they are having performed. These qualities make him an excellent surgeon and I would highly recommend him!
