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.

    Dr. Elizabeth Yu has always shown sincere kindness, compassion & care. If I ever need further spine surgery she is who I will see. She has referred me to another doctor for my shoulder & I am confident the doctor will be a good one!

    She was very thorough with the exam, once it was known I wasn't a surgical candidate I feel I was dismissed pretty quickly & passed on to my family provider.
