Kamal I. Bohsali MD
Dr. Kamal I. Bohsali, is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon with special interest 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 and has lectured 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 currently serves as an associate member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons society, active fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and American College of Surgeons, and active member of Arthroscopy Association of North America. He recently completed a six year term on the AAOS Upper Extremity Evaluation Committee, and presently serves on the AAOS OKU Evaluation Committee. 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 medical and orthopaedic community. With my wife, Leslie, from Atlanta in tow, we have already grown deep roots in the greater Jacksonville area by adding a son and a daughter to our family. 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, quality medical care. Communication and education are of utmost importance to provide my patients the ability to make informed decisions regarding medical or surgical 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.
Thankful of the education I have received over the years, I have reciprocated by volunteering in the orthopaedic community locally, regionally, and nationally through course instruction and committee membership. Even more enjoyable is sharing my time with enthusiastic five and six year olds as their baseball coach, as they learn the fundamentals of the sport and the qualities that define sportsmanship and teamwork.
I was elected to serve on the 2017 Annual Meeting Program Committee for the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Society. The committee is charged with preparation of the educational program for all U.S. and international members of this orthopedic subspecialty society. http://www.ases-assn.org/
