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.

  • Reviewed on Nov 06, 2022

    Went to this provider hoping to find the condition my back is in. No explanation of numerous X-rays taken other than nothing could be done. Seemed to judge as to whether surgery could be done. No explanation as to what X-rays showed. Very disappointed in no explaining of condition of my back. Felt if surgery was possibility she would have been more helpful.

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 09/30/2022, Dr. Yu has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
