During this time of public health concern, many appointments for orthopedic care may take place via telehealth wherever it's possible and appropriate. For all in-person visits, we've taken significant measures to minimize the risk of the spread of COVID-19 and keep you safe, including visitor restrictions, symptom screening, social distancing, required masking, frequent disinfecting and direct entry from check-in to exam rooms where possible. 



Ohio State Orthopedic Specialists Can Put An End To Your Joint Pain

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. If you’re experiencing joint, muscle, bone, tendon or nerve pain, orthopedic trauma, osteoarthritis or fracture, Ohio State’s general orthopedic doctors can diagnose and treat the cause of your pain. Same or next-day appointments are often available.

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
  • A need for joint replacement

Our orthopedic surgeons specialize in performing primary and complex joint replacement in adults. You too can get relief from pain, stiffness and weakness in a major joint like a knee or hip here.

Why choose Ohio State for your orthopedic care?

As an academic health center, we have access to the full range of medical specialists and can coordinate all of your care. People come to us from throughout Ohio and nearby states for their joint replacement surgery and our orthopedists also manage a large volume of post-operative complications following total joint replacement performed at outside facilities throughout the state of Ohio. 

We lead clinical trials and scientific research projects that look for new and better ways to treat osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions, like minimally invasive knee and hip surgical techniques and rehabilitation programs, all designed to speed your recovery and help you get back to being you.
