About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon at Ohio State, I specialize in total joint replacement and reconstructive procedures of the hip and knee for problems caused by arthritis, trauma, developmental abnormalities and infection.

The goal of our comprehensive adult reconstructive surgery program is to deliver the very best care to our patients in a compassionate and timely fashion. I believe that the best care is delivered through a team approach. In addition to seeing me, my patients meet with nurses, physician's assistants and physical therapists.

I've had a lifelong interest not just in clinical practice, but also in education and research. Ohio State is among the largest and finest academic medical centers in the country. What I enjoy most about working at Ohio State is the opportunity to deliver optimum care to my patients.

When I have free time, I enjoy fly-fishing, restoring old muscle cars and golfing. I am a bicycling addict and try to ride my road bike whenever possible. My wife and I recently became empty nesters, as we've just sent our last college graduate off to a career in Chicago. However, my Old English Sheepdog and four cats continue to keep us company.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Glassman since my hip surgery. I am now pain free and continue to improve every day. I cannot praise him enough for the care I have received and the outstanding job he did. I have also quit smoking thanks to Dr. Glassman and his requirement of not smoking before have surgery. This requirement gave me the motivation to quit. It has been 14 months since quitting.
