About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon, I specialize in operative and non-operative management of sports-related injuries and conditions of the knee and shoulder. I treat patients of all ages, from the high school athlete to the weekend warrior. I have a special interest in joint preservation and treatments for early arthritis of the knee through my training at the Cartilage Repair Center at Harvard University. I plan to use the treatment strategies I learned in Boston for my patients at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the team-based approach to care. I enjoy working closely with physical therapists, nurses, researchers, physician assistants and other physicians to ensure that our patients are receiving the best treatments resulting in the best outcomes.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time outdoors, watching movies and attending Ohio State football games.

    My father has been to numerous doctors and had gone to the hospital to try to get the problem diagnosed and fixed. By the time he saw Dr. Dueer, he needed 2 surgeries because the infection was severe. I believe Dr. Dueer saved my father's life.
