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 wonderful! Unfortunately I've had to have two surgeries by him but he was careful to try non-surgical treatment before offering surgery. He is ALWAYS attentive and provides great care. Always friendly & knows my medical history before he comes into the room. Explains everything in a manner I can understand. He's the best!

    I have noting but good things to say about my care provider. Wonderful doc. He's easy to talk to and provides answers to my questions where I can understand. For the times I was having problems following him, he took the time to make sure I understood everything before I left his care.

    I am so grateful that he did not write me off because of my age and gave me the option of surgery.

    felt rushed and essentially pawned me off to another doctor since I'm not an athlete'.
