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. You performed a surgery that is solving my back pain problems. Before and after surgery she has provided the highest levels of availability, care and friendliness. I couldn't ask for more - best results possible with the highest quality of service.

    Dr. Yu came highly recommended from 4 other patients! That is significant. Unfortunately, my spine issues are not operable, however, Dr. Yu made me understand that through specific physical therapy that I could improve. She gave me hope and a plan and I intend to follow it.

    A little late, but that's okay. Very nice and concerned about my health.
