Kevin O’Halloran, MD is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with sub-specialty fellowship training in trauma. Kevin’s medical journey did not begin immediately; born in Minneapolis, Kevin joined the Army in 1995 after graduating high school. He served as an enlisted man on active-duty for four years. He then transferred to the Army National Guard during college and in 2006, was commissioned as a second lieutenant.

Kevin began his post-secondary education at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, where he completed his undergraduate degree. He attended medical school at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. After finishing medical school, Kevin completed his orthopedic residency at Montefiore/Einstein in the Bronx, NY. He did his fellowship training in orthopedic traumatology at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Dr. O’Halloran first became interested in medicine in response to his desire to alleviate suffering through his work, while also pursuing his passion for science. However, orthopedics was not always on his radar. His interests changed after an international medical school rotation in Nicaragua in 2006. There, orthopedic trauma captivated his attention. He often met patients on their worst days and he saw how orthopedic traumatology not only helped save lives, but helped patients regain their function, or adapt to their new normal. For Dr. O’Halloran, ortho trauma gave him an opportunity to alleviate suffering through his work.

Kevin has deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq as an orthopedic surgeon where he cared for patients and soldiers suffering orthopedic injuries. He continues to serve in the US Army Reserves with over 27 years in service.

Kevin previously became fond of the western U.S. after living in El Paso, TX. Here in Idaho, he loves exploring Pocatello and the surrounding regions with his wife Caitlin and son, Otis. When not practicing medicine, he enjoys fishing, hiking, backcountry camping, canoeing, skiing, reading and traveling. As a part of the Portneuf medical team, he is excited to be developing an orthopedic trauma service to enhance the trauma care provided in Southeastern Idaho.

I tore my quadricep tendon and tore my knee cap off, and when I first met Dr. O'Halloran, he painted me quite the dismal picture, telling me all the things that could go wrong with the surgery, he also told me that he was not the best in this area, and I thought that life as I knew it was over with. I did not think that I would ever walk again. a nurse at portneuf told me Dale, he is really good and that he is just being humble, and I agree with her, Dr. O'Halloran is quite the humble man, but he is very good and he did an excellent job repairing my tendon and knee cap, I could not be more satisfied with his work. So, I highly reccommend him and his team, he gave me a standard of life that I didn't think that I would ever have again. I can't thank him enough for his work and the fact that he is just an all around good guy. I am glad that I know him and would definitely use his services again. Thank you Dr. O'Halloran!!!

Dr. O’ Halloran helped to save my husband’s life after a serious motorcycle accident. He is a caring and dedicated surgeon that made it possible for my husband to regain his life! We are so fortunate to have him in Pocatello.

Absolutely amazing doctor. I messed up my elbow bad, and it's because of this man I can still use it. God bless.

Dr O'Halloran and his team are absolutely beyond incredible! I received a nasty injury to my knee in a fall. The chances for a successful outcome were very bleak however, Dr O'Halloran is highly skilled and very caring. He turned an injury with a 25% success rate into into a happy ending. He also has followed my healing from out of state. His office staff are also wonderful and caring. I'm so grateful to have this team on my side! They are ROCK STARS in my book!

Dr. O'Halloran and his team are absolutely amazing! My mother was in a terrible accident and many would have amputated, but not Dr. O'Halloran and his team. They worked together and diligently to save her leg. 7 months later she is learning to walk again! We can't thank them enough for believing in themselves and her! In addition, they all have a great bedside manner!

Unfortunate to break my left ankle in three places, Dr O'Halloran performed the surgery, which mended my ankle, and now it's healed absolutely well. If it weren't for him, I may have lost my left ankle and foot altogether by amputation. In my opinion, he is a miracle worker. Many serious praises of thanks for this Doctor... He's Darn Good!
