About Eugene A Bonaroti, MD, FACS

About Us

Surgical Spine Associates offers comprehensive and compassionate medical and surgical care for the full scope of back and neck conditions, whether they’re caused by injuries, illnesses, or degenerative diseases. They welcome adults at three convenient locations in the Pittsburgh area: Irwin, Cranberry, and Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania.

Board-certified neurosurgeon Eugene Bonaroti, MD, FACS, and the professional team at Surgical Spine Associates treat every patient as a whole person, rather than only focusing on their symptoms or condition.

The team values working together with each person and inviting them to participate in their health care decisions and treatments. Patients initially receive conservative, nonsurgical therapies. Should surgery become necessary, Surgical Spine Associates offers the safest, most effective, and least invasive approach.

Dr. Bonaroti received his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and stayed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to do his internship in general surgery and residency in neurological surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).

Prior to starting his private practice, Dr. Bonaroti gained extensive experience working as an attending physician at numerous hospitals in the Pittsburgh area, including UPMC Shadyside Hospital, UPMC Passavant, UPMC St. Margaret, and Western Pennsylvania Hospital.

Dr. Bonaroti most recently served as an attending physician at Allegheny General Hospital Department of Neurological Surgery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and as the Chief of Neurological Surgery and the Neurotrauma Director at Forbes Hospital in Monroeville, Pennsylvania.

The experts at Surgical Spine Associates help patients find pain relief from conditions such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet joint arthritis, and spinal stenosis. They also have extensive experience treating complex spinal conditions.

As specialists in minimally invasive spinal surgery, they perform procedures such as artificial disc replacement, microdiscectomy, spinal decompression, and spinal fusion. They also offer cutting-edge devices, using today’s technology to produce optimal results.

Surgical Spine Associates offers pain management services, creating personalized plans that encompass multiple therapies, from conservative care to spinal cord stimulators and intrathecal-directed drug delivery. 

The team at Surgical Spine Associates also offers consulting services, including independent medical examinations, medico-legal counseling, and product development.
