About Me

As an anesthesiologist and pain medicine physician here at Ohio State, I specialize in anesthesiology, pain medicine and neuromodulation. I’m also credentialed in acupuncture.

I strongly believe in patient education. My approach to patient care involves educating each of my patients so that we’re able to work together to create individualized care plans. I take the time to help them understand the risks and benefits of treatments, possible interventions and medication management. I like to make sure my patients know all of their treatment options, ranging from the most conservative to more invasive.

I’m passionate about my career mainly because pain has the potential to cause so much disability. I work with patients to help them through this process in order for them to achieve the fullest life possible.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the amazing staff and team of physicians. We all share the same goal of providing the best comprehensive care to our patients.

When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my family and enjoying the 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 10/25/2021, Dr. Tornero-Bold has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
