About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon, I specialize in sports medicine and hip preservation. I think our field is very special because we’re able to use a combination of conservative and surgical treatments to help a variety of individuals return to certain activities or achieve specific goals.

I believe that helping patients return to a desired level of activity can help improve their lives and overall health. When we personalize a patient’s goals and collaboratively craft successful treatment strategies, our team develops a strong personal connection with the patient. In accomplishing this, we help patients lead full and engaged lives.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University because we have the unique opportunity to combine clinical practice, community outreach, academic research goals and teaching skills.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and inventing new adventures with them. We love being outdoors and enjoy being a part of our community.

    Dr. Vasileff is an amazing doctor. I had a setback after surgery and he was able to see me right away and helped with how to fix the problem. I messaged him and he personally responded to me and was able to help me get a sooner appointment. After having undiagnosable hip pain for more than 1 1/2 years Dr. Vasileff was able to find the problem and fix it. Best bedside manors I've ever seen!

    I asked for information about alternative treatment, he did not spend anytime on that - just saying you need a hip replacement, end of story (my words, not his)
