About Me

I believe that people should have their care personalized to fit their needs and situation.

I specialize in orthopaedic sports medicine surgery for active people. I enjoy helping people develop, maintain or return to an active lifestyle.

What I’m most proud of at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is our program that addresses anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury treatment, prevention and outcomes. Our research program has resulted in numerous research publications that have helped shape the care of ACL injuries across the country.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and climbing mountains. I have climbed mountains in Ecuador, Peru, Japan, Tanzania, Switzerland and across the U.S.

    Very satisfied with Dr Kaeding's concern for my specific injury and potential treatment options

    I love Amber, Dr. Kaeding's scheduler. She is on top of it and super pleasant and personable. You can tell Amber likes her job, and people. Rare! Dr. Kaeding was exceptionally kind about my personal life (my brother had just recently passed) that came up in our exam. I can always count on him for GREAT medical care, but it was nice to feel like a human being and not just another number.
