About Me

As a physiatrist, I specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation, specifically non-operative spine care and electrodiagnostic testing. I particularly enjoy meeting and talking with my patients and identifying the best way to assist them in achieving their highest levels of function and quality of life.

I believe that all patients have distinctly unique backgrounds and life situations. When formulating a treatment plan for a patient, it’s very important that the treatment techniques are flexible as well as specific to each person.

The teamwork and multidisciplinary approach, as well as the multitude of resources available here are what make my job at Ohio State so unique and special. I also have the expertise and support of many talented colleagues.

In my free time, I really enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family. I also enjoy reading, as well as spending time outdoors.

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. Vetter has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
