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. He has lectured nationally, and published peer reviewed articles and book chapters on the treatment of rotator cuff arthropathy, shoulder arthritis, massive rotator cuff tears, and proximal humerus fractures. His interests include management of partial rotator cuff tears, rotator cuff arthropathy, proximal humerus fractures, shoulder arthritis in the young patient, elbow arthritis, elbow trauma, and upper extremity peripheral nerve compression. He is an active member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons society, Arthroscopy Association of North America, and fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and American College of Surgeons. He has served on multiple committees for the AAOS with recent work resulting in the publication of the glenohumeral osteoarthritis clinical practice guideline. He is a member of the Abstract Review Panel, and the Proximal Humerus Multicenter and Membership Taskforce groups for the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Society. Dr. Bohsali serves as chairman of the Department of Surgery at Baptist Beaches Hospital, and as team physician for the Jacksonville Armada FC. He volunteers as a board examiner for the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, and as a peer reviewer and/or editorial board member for several well respected orthopaedic journals. Dr. Bohsali is the principal investigator for an ongoing IRB approved study regarding surgical management of partial rotator cuff tears with a novel bio-inductive implant. With over 14 years 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, weightlifting, running, snowboarding, and playing sports with my children.” – Dr. Kamal I. Bohsali

“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.” – Dr. Kamal I. Bohsali

“I believe in meeting patients’ needs through thorough evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle.” – Dr. Kamal I. Bohsali
