As an orthopedic surgeon, I first like to understand how my patients’ medical issues affect their lives, including everything from their job to their hobbies. Then, I diagnose the problem, draw or write the medical issue and discuss the individual’s options for treatment. I make sure that my patients understand their diagnosis and options.

I specialize in hand and upper extremity surgery, which I find to be a biomechanical wonder. Hands and arms are so important to daily function. If I can help people with their arms, I’m happy.

I enjoy everything about working at Ohio State. The people here are hard working and very friendly.

In my free time, I enjoy working on home projects, exercising and relaxing with my family. My wife and two young kids keep me busy with various activities.

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