Biography

Christopher Bohac, MD, is a general surgeon and the trauma medical director at University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center, a Campus of UH Regional Hospitals in Chardon, Ohio. Dr. Bohac specializes in traditional general surgery, minimally invasive surgery and trauma surgery. He is an expert in abdominal wall hernia repair, from massive abdominal wall reconstructions to laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. He also performs minimally invasive colon surgery with decreased hospital stays for both cancerous and benign colon disease.

Dr. Bohac originally received his Bachelor of Science degree at University of Rochester in physics, receiving the honor of Magna Cum Laude as well as being selected as a member of Sigma Pi Sigma, the physics honor society. He then performed two years of astrophysics research and contributed to over 13 publications, including one in Nature, which along with Science, is one of the two most prestigious journals in all of scientific research. Dr. Bohac then returned to his first passion of medicine, and graduated from the University of Illinois School of Medicine as an Honor Graduate. He was selected into the physician honor society Alpha Omega Alpha after his junior year, an honor designating him in the top 5 percent of his class.

Dr. Bohac then trained in general surgery at the prestigious Case Western Reserve University general surgery program. He is trained in the most up-to-date, internationally renowned techniques in minimally invasive surgery. He is expert in all aspects of general surgery, from simple skin lesions to minimally invasive colon surgery. Dr. Bohac decided he wanted to be an ingrained partner in an entire community though, and decided to settle in Geauga County at UH Geauga Medical Center. Since arriving, he took over as the trauma medical director of UH Geauga Medical Center's Level III Trauma Center, and the program continues to succeed. Dr. Bohac remains board-certified in general surgery.

Dr. Bohac communicated directly with me using great eye contact during the office visit. I appreciated this instead of providers who spend all the time typing on the laptop. He was very thorough in his explanations of the condition and as to why surgery was not necessary at this time. He was kind, patient and caring.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
