Ohio State’s general orthopedic doctors can get you back to the activities you enjoy

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we care for a wide array of orthopedic problems including sprains, strains and repetitive motion stress, injury and infection. We can help with:

  • pain as a result of an injury
  • long-term or chronic joint, muscle, bone, tendon or nerve pain
  • general upright instability or inability to perform daily functions
  • limited range of motion
  • joint replacement
  • general orthopedic care

Relief from aching joints starts with the right doctor, the right diagnosis and the right treatment plan.

  • We tailor our treatments to your needs, activities, goals and medical history.
  • We focus on meaningful conversations about your past, present and future musculoskeletal health.
  • As an academic health center committed to team-based care, we have access to the full range of medical specialists to get you back to activity, from non-operative orthopedists to physical therapists to surgeons and more.
  • Our orthopedists manage a large volume of postoperative complications following total joint replacements performed at other facilities.
  • We have fellowship-trained and board certified specialists practicing in several suburban locations throughout central Ohio, providing convenient options near your work or home.

Orthopedic innovations at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center can help speed your recovery.

Our orthopedic experts conduct extensive research in the prevention and treatment of joint injuries. This relentless focus on knowledge allows our team to deliver the safest and highest quality value-based care. Here are just a few examples:

  • Our orthopedic team has developed a rapid recovery system that helps those receiving hip and knee replacements get home quickly and back to their regular activities in a few weeks.
  • Our orthopedic hand surgeons are pioneers in “wide-awake” procedures. These patients benefit from greater efficiency, cost savings and better outcomes than traditional surgery with anesthesia.
  • As rates of cartilage damage and osteoarthritic knees increase among younger patients, our team is preventing more early age total joint replacements with clinical trials to “grow” new cartilage and restore knees.
  • The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center is one of only 25 centers worldwide with the premier-level certification for Geriatric Fracture Care Programs from the International Geriatric Fracture Society. Patients benefit from services and treatments that speed recovery and prevent future fractures.
