About Me

My goal for each patient is to provide integrated and innovative treatment strategies and education and research for injuries and conditions affecting athletes in order to optimize performance.

I’m a member of Ohio State's Orthopaedics Department. I specialize in the operative and non-operative treatment of sports-related injuries and conditions of the shoulder, elbow, knee, foot and ankle. I am passionate about my career because I have been participating in sports for most of my life and want to help others do the same.

What I enjoy most about working here is serving as the team physician for The Ohio State University.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, relaxing with my family, attending Ohio State football games, working out, running and participating in fitness competitions.

Very satisfied with the care I received from Dr. Miller. I especially liked the amount of time and thoroughness in which he explained my injury to me. The out patient OR staff at Orthopedic Clinic was wonderful too!

I cannot give enough praise for Dr. Timothy Miller. He has provided me the opportunity to return to the high level of activity that I enjoyed prior to my injury. His personality, professionalism, courtesy & skill are as fine as I have ever encountered. I recommend him without reservation!

Wow!!! What a great guy. Tim is very professional and has the best interest of your health. This is the third surgery Dr. Miller has done on me? I would not go anywhere else.

I looked for Dr. Miller (he had changed location) because he is such a good doctor and a genuine caring man. He fixed my other knee a few yrs ago. He also called me the day after surgery to reiterate what he told me when I was there and to see how I was doing. I really appreciate him for that.

My care provider (Dr. Miller) was professional, and I have no problems with my treatment. Howeve, our appointments always lasted less than five minutes together. He talked very fast, and hurried in and out of the room. Didn't spend enough time with me or make me comfortable enough in my recovery process.
