About MeI played football at The Ohio State University from 1989 to 1993. The physicians who cared for me when I was a student-athlete inspired me to pursue a career in medicine.
I specialize in sports medicine, which focuses on providing care for injuries and medical conditions that affect a patient’s ability to be active throughout their lifetime. These include acute sports injuries, overuse sports injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
I believe in providing personalized care that focuses on treatment that addresses a patient’s medical needs and individual goals. As a former athlete, I believe in working as a team with a patient to achieve the best approach and treatment for each individual.
I’m passionate about my career because I am able to work with patients to help them remain active and healthy across their lifetime. What I enjoy the most is when I am able to help athletes of all skill levels return to the activities that they enjoy.

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 03/28/2017, Dr. Borchers has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
