About Me

I’m board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation as well as in the subspecialties of pain medicine and addiction medicine.

I’m proud to serve as medical director of oncology rehabilitation at Ohio State. We have expanded our services for cancer survivors and were the first in Ohio and second in the United States to have an accredited inpatient cancer rehabilitation service.

My clinical interests include cancer pain management, especially interventional management, cancer rehabilitation, chronic interventional pain management and neuromodulation, including spinal cord stimulators.

I’m also a clinical associate professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I earned my medical degree from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine and completed my residency training in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Ohio State. Then I completed a fellowship in interventional pain medicine at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my dog Sawyer, and I am a national-level judge for U.S. Figure Skating.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 11/21/2019, Dr. Luke has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
