About Me

I emphasize treating orthopedic problems in the least invasive way possible. That starts with treating injuries non-operatively first, if no surgery is absolutely necessary.

Many orthopedic problems can be effectively treated with a non-operative approach that allows the patient to return to an active lifestyle. If surgery is needed, we use the most minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques to treat these disorders at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

I specialize in shoulder, elbow and knee disorders for all age groups. I am passionate about getting active individuals back to the activities they enjoy. I also enjoy teaching bright medical students, residents and fellows to prepare them for their future careers.

In my spare time, I enjoy extreme skiing and mountain biking out West. In 2007, I spent six weeks traveling around South America to give lectures and observe local orthopedic surgeries.

Dr. Jones was very precise in his diagnosis of my injury. He was confident, but assuring, and that is exactly what I'm looking for when I'm dealing with something as unfamiliar as this.

I was first assessed by a Resident and Physical Therapist who listened to all my concerns and asked many questions about my elbow injury trying to understand my situation. They then went out of room to consult with physician and returned back to along with him . Together they examined me and looked at xrays and we all discussed a diagnosis and treatment plan.
