About Me

My approach to patient care is always focused on the unique goals of each patient. Whether a patient wants to return to a varsity sport or walk without pain, I work with each of them to establish goals and chart a treatment course.

I specialize in the treatment of sports injuries, including both operative and non-operative care. While I treat injuries throughout the body, my primary area of interest is the knee. I am interested in ligament injuries, such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and dislocations of the kneecap. My role as both a clinician and researcher allows me to translate the results of my research in these areas directly to my patients.

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we’re extremely fortunate to have access to top experts in every medical field and the best technology available. Our team approach to patient care allows every patient to benefit from these resources.

    One of the best MD's I have ever seen - super caring - highly intelligent.

  • Reviewed on Jan 28, 2020

    Dr. Magnussen seemed very approachable, and genuinely interested in my issues. While being very efficient and practicing excellent time management, he never came across as rushed or in a hurry.

  • Reviewed on Jan 25, 2020

    Magnusen was considerate and knowledgeable. I explained that I don't like taking NSAIDs often (seen for knee injury) and he prescribed a daily NSAID arthritis medication after I told him IBUprofen was working well and I didn't like taking it frequently. in this regard I didn't feel listened to.
