About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in adult reconstruction, preservation surgery and complex reconstructive surgery.

I believe in treating each of my patients with consideration to his or her unique circumstances. The best part about my job is making a difference in my patients’ healthcare outcomes and quality of life.

My favorite part about working here at Ohio State the opportunity to work in an academic setting as well as the access that we have to cutting edge technology.

When I’m not working I like to spend time watching movies and relaxing with my family.

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. Li has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
