About Me

I joined Ohio State after working in Army Medicine, managing a broad spectrum of patients with foot and ankle disorders. From experience in austere environments, I honed my skills in out of the box solutions for both simple and complex challenges. I enjoyed working with a team of subspecialists to get our soldiers back to duty as quickly as possible. At Ohio State, we have a strikingly similar team and opportunity to expand medical solutions. We have a phenomenal group of physicians working to get individuals back to the activities they enjoy and I also continue to pursue my research in microfracture, cartilage restoration for the talus and ankle arthritis.

I provide care for a variety of foot and ankle conditions in my clinical practice, ranging from sports injuries to trauma to deformities, reconstruction and arthritis. My approach is to get to know the patient, how their problem affects their life and what their overall goals are. I believe patients should know all of the options that are available to them and to create a treatment plan together to get them back to the the level that they want to be.

    Dr. Groth is one of the best providers from whom I have received care. He was seeing me in follow up for a surgery and was truly interested in my progress & recovery.

    Did not take the time to listen to my concerns. Seemed bothered by the questions I asked. Overall impatient and knew little about my case, which happens to be more complex than most. In my opinion a horrible replacement for the dept. Dr. Ian Alexander was previously the head of. I will most likely be going somewhere else for future treatment.

    I was very impressed with Dr. Groth and his intern, Dr. Jones. Both were very caring, listened well and explained the procedure very well.
