BIOSPINE INSTITUTE Specialties: Orthopedic Spine Surgery

The BioSpine Institute is a private spine surgery practice that provides relief from neck and back pain through advanced minimally invasive surgery. The outpatient surgery center and new patient clinic, both in Tampa’s Westshore District, are the realized vision of two pioneers in the field, Dr. Frank Bono and Dr. James Ronzo. They were committed to building an institute dedicated to a singular purpose: to improve the lives of patients by perfecting the art and science of minimally invasive spine surgery, while providing an unparalleled experience made memorable by attention to every detail, comprehensive communication, and outstanding surgical results.

The vision began almost 15 years ago when, after medical school and additional fellowship training, Dr. James Ronzo and Dr. Frank Bono started a very successful practice in Central Florida, where they made the decision to focus exclusively on minimally invasive spine surgery. This was at a time when the huge majority of spine surgeons were still performing back surgery using the traditional, open method, a highly invasive procedure which led to a long and painful recovery. This new minimally invasive approach meant the entire procedure could be performed through a tiny ž'' incision, which led to less pain, less scarring, and a much faster recovery. Dr. Frank Bono and Dr. James Ronzo have now treated over 35,000

patients and performed over 14,000 minimally invasive surgical procedures. This places them among the most accomplished spine surgeons in the country. Minimally invasive spine surgery is certainly a field where experience matters. In addition to their extensive experience, Dr. Ronzo and Dr. Bono quickly realized through their participation in organizations such as the North American Spine Society that their surgical outcomes were among the best in the nation. They felt compelled to bring this standard of excellence to a new and larger population of patients in Greater Tampa Bay, and so is born the BioSpine Institute, a place where the experience makes all the difference.
