About Me

I specialize in orthopaedics, with a subspecialty in shoulder surgery.

My approach to patient care is providing individualized care to each patient and problem. I believe strongly in a conservative approach and involving patients in their care.

I use non-operative measures whenever possible. However, there are times when surgery is the best solution. In those cases, I use only the latest and most current techniques in shoulder surgery.

I am passionate about what I do as an orthopedic shoulder surgeon. That’s because I get a lot of pleasure from treating not only the straightforward problems, but also the complex and more difficult shoulder problems. I love helping patients reclaim their quality of life and getting them back to the activities they enjoy.

Care provider truly exceptionally gifted.

Dr. Bishop is very friendly and knowledgeable. She definitely showed insight into my accident and recovery, and showed obvious concern for my recovery.

Excellent. Dr. Bishop is focused on what is best for me and helping me in my goal of prolonging the life of my prosthesis and avoiding additional surgery for as long as possible. She listens and addresses my questions and concerns better than any shoulder surgeon I have ever seen.

I only see Dr. Bishop , postop surgery, every 2 years.

Reviewed on Nov 10, 2017

The provider was very professional, caring and attentive. She explained my test results of that morning to me and answered my questions clearly and in an understanding way. Since there were no issues that required surgery, she referred me to another provider to seek treatment for my condition. I felt very comfortable with this provider.

Do not see her wash hands

Reviewed on Sep 30, 2017

Had it not been for Dr. Bishop, I would never have had my shoulders replaced. I have had no issues whatsoever with the prosthesis, unlike the horror stories I've heard through the years from everyone I've ever known who's had any kind of should work done. From a finished product standpoint, it is easy to see why she is at the top of her profession. It is, however, more than clinical. Dr. Bishop's gifts are far more than surgical. She spent a great deal of time, the first time I met her, understanding my current situation and explaining where I was currently and what my future held without surgery. She convinced me to go forward with something I'd been putting off over 15 years. Her "bedside manner" is second to none. I doubt I will need to go back to see her, so this will be the last survey I will complete for her. So in closing I will tell you Dr. Bishop is the consummate professional, OSU is beyond fortunate to have her on their staff. Best regards.
