Dr. Bonatus replaced my right hip February 10, 2020. I am very pleased with his care and and expertise. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a hip replacement. He is knowledgeable, informative and very skilled. I am in the process of making a complete recovery. Do not hesitate to see him for hip replacement issues.

About Me

There's nothing I want more than to helping patients recover from their injuries and return to normal function. I find a personal fulfillment in educating patients in a way that encourages them to make the right care choices for them and their lifestyle. Then, I tailor the treatment to meet their individual needs.
