Over the years Dr. Bonisignore has been eager to explore a non-surgical approach to the many orthopedic ailments that patients experience including a potential substitution to costly and painful joint replacement.
Dr. Bonsignore, a board-certified surgeon, is highly trained in Orthopedic Surgery with over a decade of experience. He has seen many patients where surgery may not have been a good option.
He quotes: “Disc herniation, bulging discs, osteoarthritis, joint pain is among the many conditions that are commonly addressed through surgical procedures. Often these procedures fail and result in increased pain for the patients without satisfactory result and functional outcome. In addition, there are serious risks associated with anesthesia including death and having plastics and metal in the body from joint replacement surgery. Most joint replacement procedures last about 10 to 12 years. These patients may need another surgery as a result of further joint deterioration, movement of apparatus or deterioration of apparatus placed in the joints. For many, new problems arise after joint replacement surgery which would require a second surgery, months of rehab and going under anesthesia again.”
He also quotes: “According to the Journal of Pain Research, 74.6% of back surgeries fail, and 30% of knee surgeries. There is actually a medical diagnosis “Failed Back Surgery Syndrome”, because it is so common.”
M.T. Shahab, M.D., medical director of Medwell, L.L.C. quotes “Through non-surgical approach, the physicians at Medwell have been successful in helping many Bergen County residents rid themselves of these chronic conditions while staying out of the operating room. Regenerative Medicine, Gel shots and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy are among the many non-surgical remedies that are offered at Medwell. For many, non surgical orthopedic procedures are covered by their insurance without knowing about it.
Dr. Bonsignore comments “As a Neurosurgeon and Orthopedic Specialist, many are under the belief that if one suffers from a bone on bone shoulder or knee joint, the only solution is joint replacement. This is wrong. I have seen great results with Medwell’s Regenerative Medicine approach”. This type of approach yields immediate healing for complex conditions as well as simple ailments. Dr. Bonsignore joins Medwell’s medical team and will be on the forefront of new procedures for non surgical orthopedic care including osteoarthritis with a bone on bone diagnosis, shoulder pain, elbow pain, and ankle pain and Neuropathy symptoms such as numbness, burning, tingling and loss of feeling commonly in legs and feet.
