Kamal I. Bohsali MD

Dr. Kamal I. Bohsali, is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon with special interests in the management of pathologic conditions of the shoulder and elbow. Dr. Bohsali completed the prestigious shoulder and elbow fellowship at the University of Texas Health Science Center-San Antonio, has lectured nationally, and published peer reviewed articles and book chapters on the treatment of shoulder arthritis, massive rotator cuff tears, and proximal humerus fractures. His current interests include the treatment of rotator cuff arthropathy, proximal humerus fractures, shoulder arthritis in the young patient, elbow arthritis, elbow trauma, and upper extremity peripheral nerve compression. He is a member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons society and Arthroscopy Association of North America , and fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and American College of Surgeons. He presently serves on the AAOS OKU Evaluation and glenohumeral joint osteoarthritis clinical practice guideline committees. He recently completed his term on the 2017 Annual Meeting Program Committee for the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Society. With over a decade of clinical experience, Dr. Bohsali's joint replacement and arthroscopy skills enable his patients to receive advanced orthopedic care with the goals of pain relief, restored function, and improved quality of life.

As a native Floridian and graduate of the University Florida College of Medicine, it was a primary goal of mine to return home to contribute to the local community, and in the process have developed deep roots in the greater Jacksonville area. When I am not working, I enjoy writing, running, snowboarding, and playing sports with my kids.

I take an individualized and compassionate approach when caring for my patients. Modern day orthopaedics requires that the surgeon demonstrates comprehensive skills regarding the administration of fiscally responsible and quality medical care. Communication and education are of utmost importance to provide my patients the ability to make informed decisions regarding treatment of an orthopaedic problem. I believe that the fundamental relationship between the surgeon and the patient be based on trust, mutual understanding, and transparency.

I believe in meeting patients' needs through thorough evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle.
