About meAs a board certified neurosurgeon, I’m responsible for the comprehensive evaluation and management of patients undergoing neurological surgery as well as non-surgical therapies for pain. I treat patients with spinal and muscle spasticity conditions resulting from central nervous system injuries and disease.
I believe that there’s more to medicine than just science. When I’m treating a patient, I’m not just treating a body. I’m treating a person with a heart and soul, and to me that makes all the difference.
It’s one thing for us as doctors to have all this knowledge, but the most important part is being able to communicate it to you, the patient. When I see my patients, I really try to help them understand their situation by taking the time to discuss the condition and answer any questions that they may have.
I truly enjoy working here at Ohio State because I love providing people with excellent care that they can’t find anywhere else.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Timperman has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
