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.

Excellent.

Dr. Yu is an excellent provider and Im very happy with the care. Se has addressed my concerns and has been great about following up to my after hours calls. However, there have been a couple of appointments where I felt the time with her seemed rush. I felt that I did not have enough time to absorb our conversation in order to ask followup questions.

Dr. Yu was outstanding from - pre-surgery - to surgery to post surgery follow-up. Would highly recommend her.

They are just great.

Dr. Yu has done a very good job. Unfortunately due to OSU's size and system set up, I believe the care at OSU can become convoluted due to the amount of patients seen at your facilities.

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. Yu has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
