Rita Boyd- Drove from North of Washington DC for her revision rotator cuff surgery.
After suffering through two shoulder surgeries to repair a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder in the past one and a half years, I met with several doctors in my area for "second opinions" only to be turned away. I was given Dr. Bonner's name and made an appointment to see him. I traveled 4 hours from Maryland for my appointment and it was worth every mile on the road! From the time I signed in, the staff treated me with kindness and respect and were eager to help. Within 5 minutes of being taken to the exam room the nurse took an X-ray and then Dr. Bonner and his intern came in. Dr. Bonner did a very thorough examination, which lasted over an hour, and for the first time I had hope! Dr. Bonner knew I was in severe pain and had very little mobility of my primary arm. He said he could do the surgery on my shoulder and scheduled me right in.
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! There were no complications and the scars are barely visible. I'd just like to say to anyone who's been told by a orthopedic doctor "there's nothing they can do", go see Dr. Bonner at the Jordan-Young Institute in Virginia Beach, VA. I have to say that from the moment I walked into his office I knew I finally was in the right place!
Dr. Bonner is kind, caring and compassionate and his skills as an orthopedic surgeon are second to none! He truly cares about every patient and his mantra is "to get you back to your life before your injury", and in my case he did just that and I am forever grateful.
