About Me

As a general surgeon, I specialize in abdominal core health, minimally invasive surgery and surgical endoscopy, as well as providing treatments for hernias and gallstones. I believe in taking a holistic approach to care. Treatment options can include surgery, or other ways to improve a patient’s quality of life without surgery. Each patient brings a unique set of needs and goals that I consider when developing an effective care plan. I strive to partner with my patients to address their health care needs while working with them to find new ways of improving care for everyone.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the opportunity to work with professionals who really demonstrate a willingness to deliver the best possible care to our patients.

In my free time I enjoy running and working out, playing the keyboard and guitar and spending as much time with my family as possible.

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 03/26/2018, Dr. Poulose has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
