Dr. Frank Bohnenkamp, MD
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

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.

Patient Comments (50)
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.

Dr. Bohnenkamp and staff were amazing. I have had many ortho surgeries and finding the right doctor was very important to me. Once I talked with Dr Bohnenkamp I knew immediately that is was the office for me. He took the time to explain and show me what will be required and with humor and a light touch put me at ease. I had a total knee replacement which is no picnic but because of his experience and wonderful staff (Kara) it went very well. I don't hesitate to refer family or friends.

I was nervous about having the surgery, but Dr. Bohnenkamp took the time to explain the procedure and the other options available and listened to my concerns and answered my questions to help me decide the best option for me. I highly recommend Dr. Bohnenkamp and his staff. They are professional, compassionate and humorous all at once.

AMAZING! I highly recommend Dr Bohnenkamp and OrthoIllinois to EVERYONE I talk to about my hip replacement. I had a dislocated hip as a kid, at 52 it popped out and I needed a hip replacement. Dr Daniels (amazing too) at OrthoIllinois was my dads doctor and my daughters so I scheduled an apt. Dr Daniels referred my case to Dr Bohnenkamp! From start to finish this has been such an amazing experience! It has been less than 3 months, no limp, more energy! Go see Dr Bohnenkamp!!

East Providence, RI |
I could not be happier with the outcome of my knee replacement. Not only is Dr Bohnenkamp a skilled surgeon but his bedside manner is exceptional. He exceeded my expectations. Not only am I pain free after my surgery but the scar and deformity from previous surgeries are only a distant memory now.
in Lake In The Hills, IL |
Injured my knee exercising. OrthoIllinois was unable to get me an appointment with my original kneed doctor because he was out of town, but because they have many specialists, they were able to get me an appointment with Dr. Bohnenkamp. The doctor diagnosed my issue and relieved my pain immediately. Back to exercising within 24 hours! He was very friendly, explained my issues clearly, and told me exactly when I should feel relief and what my next steps were just in case the issue worsened.
in Woodstock, IllinoisNew York, NY |
Two other orthopedic surgeons and rehab centers recommended him to me because he specializes in HIP reconstruction. He welcomed me and took the time to explain the procedure. My prior metal hip was in place for 20 years and hurting again. He did a great job And even gave me an extra 2 inches in height by readjusting my hip so I would stand more erect. And he is a good guy to boot !. I am totally hip pain free and walking freely after many years of hurting. Thanks Dr. B. , Ken Eriksen
in Twin Lakes, WI |
