I am a surgeon who specializes in caring for burn patients through the entire course of their recovery. In addition to comprehensive burn care, I also specialize in hand and microsurgery. I enjoy the combined challenge of critical care, technical challenge and building long-term relationships with patients and their families. It's the best of all worlds!

Offering highly skilled, personalized care is important to me. I care for patients in the same way I would want my wife, kids and parents to be cared for.

I grew up on the family dairy farm just outside of Marysville and graduated from the College of Agriculture, so working here is truly a homecoming. Just like the rest of the University, the College of Medicine is an unbelievable asset. There are a seemingly infinite number of projects, researchers and resources — but it all comes together in a way that feels very personal.

In my free time, I like to enjoy the outdoors. I am an avid bow hunter.

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 03/25/2016, Dr. Bailey has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
