Board Certified Orthopedic Surgery

Dr. Dave Henneghan was born and raised in East Lansing, Michigan. There, he attended St. Thomas Aquinas elementary school, and East Lansing High School. Unfortunately, his father died when Dave was only five. Because of this, he and his two sisters were raised by their mother. In high school, Dave played football and basketball, but was most interested in soccer and was his teams captain. After high school, he attended Albion College, where he played soccer and worked as a resident assistant in the freshman dorm. Dave also worked as an EMT on the local ambulance service, and volunteered as a Big Brother for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. In the summers, he worked at a local automobile dealership and an Oldsmobile factory.

Dave's interest in medicine developed early in life. Mary, his younger sister with whom he was very close, died of osteosarcoma at the age of 18, inspiring Dave to pursue medicine.

Dave attended Michigan State University College of Human Medicine for medical school, spending his clinical years in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He interned for a year at St. Mary's hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, before completing his Orthopaedic residency in Grand Rapids. He was board certified in 1992, and recertified in 2003.

Dave began practicing Orthopaedics in Stevens Point in 1990 at the Rice Clinic, where he worked for 17 years. He continues to practice in Stevens Point, now at Stevens Point Orthopedics. Hip and knee replacements are Dave's specialty interest, and he emphasizes less invasive techniques and encourages rapid recovery for his patients.

Medicine is not Dave's only passion. His other interests include bicycling, backpacking, camping, swimming, and cross-country skiing. During the summer of 2008, Dave had the opportunity to take a cross country bicycle trip with his son and a family friend. The three rode 3,750 miles from Puget Sound, Washington, to Bar Harbor, Maine. Dave is  married to Karen, who is a registered nurse, together they have two children, Patrick and Laura.

Daves philosophy in practice is as follows: "My joy in medicine comes from helping people to continue doing the things they love to do."
