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.

    Dr. Luke suggested a PRP injection to try to alleviate SI join pain long term versus another cortisone injection. I appreciated being given an alternative therapy option.
