Dr Shonnard has been my surgeon for 8 years and has always been professional yet up front about what was going on with me medically. He has done an amazing job with my hips and I am so thankful to have such a qualified surgeon right here in the Reno/Sparks area.

Extremely thorough. Will work hard to make sure the diagnosis is correct and consequently perform the indicated surgery. He has operated on me 4 times.
in Quincy, CA |
After a terrible experience with Dr. Dolan, I found Dr. Shonnard. After a year of seeing 3 different doctors without a diagnosis and game plan, Dr. Shonnard was able to not only find what was wrong with my son's hip, mixed femoral acetabular impingement, he found it on the other side as well. Just after the first surgery my son has experienced DRAMATIC improvement! He's so excited to get back on the basketball court. Dr. Shonnard has amazing patient skills as well - no God complex here.

I had a total knee replacement done by Pail Shonnard. He misaligned the tibial portion of the prosthesis by almost 20°. I'm going to have to get revision surgery, but definitely not by Paul Sonnard.
in Sparks, NV |
pushing for mandatory X ray to the patient doesn't make sense.
