Dr. Bohnenkamp's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bohnenkamp "I grew up in a family of medical professionals. As a child I was intrigued by watching my mother and father interact and extend care to patients. Together they inspired me to want to help others and made my interests in learning and education a priority. While in college, I earned extra money by working as a tech at the university hospital, where I interacted with patients and observed physicians in their white coats making rounds, ordering complex testing that aided in diagnosis, and treating patients. I felt like I belonged in this atmosphere. This resolved my decision to switch to a pre-med track. I completed my bachelor degree and post-graduate work with Distinction. The University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago shaped my interests in surgery and a passion for anatomy, where the musculoskeletal system and limbs were of special interest. My rotation in orthopedic surgery unlocked the final pathway for my career by linking all of my natural interests in knowledge of anatomy and the biomechanics of the limbs - especially in reconstructing joints or fixing fractures. After completing my surgical residency, I elected to pursue an additional year of specialized training with a fellowship in complex hip and knee reconstruction at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. While there I was able to participate in some of the most complex cases possible to enhance my skills. In my practice I draw on my knowledge of biomaterials and implant designs to optimize long-lasting reconstructive options for any possible scenario. I have the skills and experience in a number of procedures, including superior approach, mini-posterior, and anterior approach for total hip replacement, hip resurfacing, full and partial knee replacement, and complex hip and knee revision reconstruction to offer the best option for the patient's situation."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bohnenkamp "Each patient and each surgery is unique and requires extensive planning and thought in order to provide the best possible result.  I find it rewarding to have a patient follow up after surgery smiling and happy because they were able to get back to work and their activities with no more joint pain, which often had been hampering their life for years. "

My experience with Dr. Bohnenkamp was wonderful. I went in expecting a total knee replacement and found out that I was a good candidate for a partial knee replacement. I was back to work half days in three and a half weeks. I'm now 12 weeks into my new knee and working full time without any issues.
in McHenry, IL |
Dr. Bohnenkamp is a very skilled and devoted surgeon. He did an excellent job on my bilateral total knee replacements. His manor is pleasant and cheerful and you can tell from the visit very first visit on that he truly cares about his patients. He has much expertise in the area of joint replacement, but besides that, he seems to truly love what he does. Kara, his assistant, and all the staff in his office are so nice. I highly recommend Dr. Bohnenkamp if you are considering knee surgery.

in McHenry. IL |
Compassionate to ones needs and great knowledge of what the patient requires for good results.
Huntley, IL |
I had both hips replaced at the same time. Dr. Bohnenkamp was attentive, informative and a pleasure to work with. After consulting with other surgeons in the area, I was convinced he was the right one for me. I had a complication from prior hip arthroscopy that he picked up and mitigated it from happening this time through radiation treatment. No one else caught it or planned to pre-treat this condition. I have an orthopedic background and he hit all the procedural nails on the head!

My daughter broke her arm after falling off her bike and ended up needing to be taken into the OR to straighten it. I was nervous about how she would do without me being able to be in there with her, but she loved Dr. Bohnenkamp so much that she handled everything like a pro, knowing he would be in there with her. He and his staff have been so caring, compassionate and thorough and I really can't thank them enough for their incredible care and attention.
