History and Heritage
The Bonati Spine Institute was founded in 1981 and is the recognized leader in advanced spine surgery.
In 1986, Dr. Bonati turned his focus on arthroscopic surgery, or minimally invasive spine surgery. By 1991, he developed advanced arthroscopic techniques and instruments for spine surgery and obtained seven patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for his methods and instruments. He was also the first to obtain FDA approval for the use of the Holmium YAG laser on the spine. These methods and instruments are known today as The Bonati Spine Procedures.
Pioneered at The Bonati Spine Institute, endoscopic laser spine surgery was also perfected here.
Dr. Bonati was an advocate of arthroscopic surgery because the scarring was minimal, a patient’s recovery time was minimized, and the surgery could be performed on an outpatient basis using only local anesthesia.
The Bonati Experience
Nearly 94% surgery success rate is a clear indication of the effectiveness of The Bonati Spine Procedures. Using arthroscopic and endoscopic laser-assisted spine surgery, The Bonati Spine Procedures are performed on an outpatient basis using a local anesthesia. This allows the patient to remain alert and communicate directly with the surgeon to isolate, identify and target the exact source of the pain. This identification is referred to as pain mapping and it allows our doctors to treat only the area causing pain.
The Bonati Spine Procedures are performed with patented methods and instrumentation only available at The Bonati Spine Institute. These procedures promote faster recovery times than traditional, highly invasive open back surgery, allowing the patient to resume normal daily activities much sooner.
