“I owe my future to Dr. Bonner because if it wasn't for him, I'd have the use of only one arm. He took the time to examine me, and the records from my two previous surgeries, and put together a plan. He operated on me to repair my torn rotator cuff, which was complicated by an "anchor" that had fallen out from the previous surgery I had in Maryland. I could tell within three days after Dr. Bonner operated that it was a success!”

“From surgery to soaring above the rim. Thanks Dr Bonner and team.”
~ Mark Williams Duke Men’s Basketball Center

"Although it was a severe injury, my daughter was able to run a cross country race 10 months later, play a meaningful role in her varsity basketball team's conference championship games, and run strong enough during Track & Field season to win the coach's awards for her performance. It was a remarkable recovery for which we will be forever grateful to Dr. Bonner and his team."

“Hi! I am Merycarla Pichardo, M.D. Urologist from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The good function without limitations of my shoulder is essential in my work, that is why I chose the services of Dr. Kevin Bonner for a minimally invasive reconstruction of my right shoulder in May 2019. Incredible in all aspects. An unparalleled support and therapy staff. Not to mention the professionalism and prodigious surgical hands of Dr. Bonner. A few weeks after the surgery, my quality of life and my professional practice remain without any limitation due to the injuries that I once had in my shoulder.
