Insurances We Accept
As an orthopedic surgeon at Ohio State, I specialize in shoulder and elbow surgery. I am lucky to work with a diverse group of patients, from teenage athletes to retired competitors. I love getting to know my patients and their families, especially when I am able to help them through uncertain situations.

I do my best to provide specialty-based care with a focus on outcomes and satisfaction. I believe in giving each patient the unique attention he or she needs. Whether a patient is going through operative or non-operative care, I find that I really develop a relationship with them.

I love the team approach that we have here at Ohio State. My partners are outstanding, and I fully trust their thoughts and opinions. They are truly national leaders in our field and having them in my corner makes my work easy. In addition to the team environment, I like the breadth of resources that are available here.

In my free time, I enjoy attending Ohio State football games, watching movies and relaxing with my family. My wife Emily and I have two children. I love sports, and while I spent many years in Wisconsin as a Badger fan, since joining Ohio State, I am proud to adopt the traditions of a Buckeye fan.

My Department


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 03/28/17, Dr. Barlow has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
