About Me

I’m an orthopedic surgeon with a subspecialty in sports medicine and shoulder surgery. I take the time to understand each patient’s concerns, goals and expectations while providing a clear explanation of the diagnosis and treatment options, which can range from non-operative solutions to minimally invasive arthroscopic or open surgeries for patients of all ages. I’m passionate about helping my patients alleviate their pain and improving their function to get them back to doing the things that they enjoy.

I developed a focus on patient care, research and education while training at the world-renowned Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. However, as someone who was born and raised in Columbus, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has always been a special place to me. The team-based approach and willingness to address any problem, no matter how complex, set Ohio State apart for providing the best care possible to patients and made it the ideal place to continue my career.

I’ve served as a team physician and taken care of athletes at all levels of competition, including providing care as an assistant team physician with the New York Giants. I also enjoy taking care of the athletes at Ohio State.

My research interests include enhancing our understanding of shoulder instability and available treatment options as well as patient expectations and clinical outcomes for shoulder replacements and rotator cuff repairs.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family as well as playing tennis and hiking.

    Dr. Rauck was extremely helpful, professional and thorough. He explained in detail my x-rays, the treatments and possible outcomes. He went over a thoughtful treatment plan which I am following and will see him again over the next two weeks to follow-up.

    Dr. Rauke was very thorough but spoke so quickly that I felt a little rushed. However I got all of the information I think I needed and he was very professional.
