Christopher Bonsignore, M.D. has joined the team of physicians at Medwell as Head of Orthopedic Care in the Bergen County Office to help provide a nonsurgical approach to the orthopedic problems that many people face today.  Dr. Bonsignore will provide nonsurgical orthopedic care and assessments for sciatic, spine, knee, shoulder and leg pain.

With over 10 years as a board-certified neurosurgeon, Dr. Bonsignore says that he has dealt with many surgeries where it may not have been the best option for the patient.

Dr. Bonsignore stated, "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."

For years Dr. Bonsignore has explored many nonsurgical approaches to Orthopedic Care that has included many potential substitutions to joint replacement that could be painful and costly.

"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." Says Dr. Bonsignore regarding this approach to orthopedic care.

M. T. Shahab, M.D., medical director of Medwell, L.L.C. states, "Medwell is privileged to have Dr. Bonsignore, a renowned surgeon as part of our team. The future of medicine is leaning towards a non-invasive natural approach and regenerative medicine to many chronic conditions that have plagued patients for decades."

You now have nonsurgical options to Orthopedic Care in Bergen County with the addition of Dr. Bonsignore to the Medwell team.
