About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon at Ohio State, I specialize in the treatment of spinal disease and disorders. Some of my clinical interests include spinal stenosis, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and degenerative scoliosis.

I take the time to develop relationships with my patients and choose treatment options based on what is in their best interest. I work to improve their quality of life by exhausting all treatment options before considering surgery. When surgery is needed to treat a patient, my team and I are here to provide the best possible surgical care.

Working at Ohio State is great because of the friendly and compassionate environment. My job also allows me to work with amazing and talented physicians.

    I would love to have had a longer interview but, I had already prayed about my situation before the surgery and was repaired for home. I'm glad to share the opportunity. Thank you all. One more classy group.

    This was my second back surgery that Dr Yu was able to give me relief from the pain. Now I'm in water therapy twice a week to regain strength in walking distance... I have hope now!
