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.

    The doctor was very knowledgeable about my issue

    I think if Dr. Grothe conveyed his information with greater confidence that it would make the patient feel better cared for. He's very kind though.

    Still have pain from foot at times where the surgery was done. Doctor said it could take a year for the pain to go away. He didn't have me get up and walk on foot at last appt. to see how I walked or about the pain.

    He clearly explained the pros and cons and risks of my upcoming surgical procedure so that I felt ready to make an informed decision about having it done.
