About Me

I’m a urologist here at Ohio State and I specialize in general urology. I’m passionate about being able to practice both medicine and surgery. I believe in treating each patient as if he or she were a member of my family and I ensure that every person is getting the very best possible care.

My favorite part about working here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the friendly nature of my fellow faculty members, as well as the patients.

When I’m not working I like to spend my free time reading, enjoying the outdoors and relaxing with my family.

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 12/20/2018, Dr. Bellows has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
