I’m an orthopaedic surgeon, specializing in hip preserving surgeries. The typical patients I see are younger than 50 years old. They could have hip pain, groin pain, lateral pain or buttock pain that limits their quality of life. My patients have tried physical therapy, but their pain has not improved. At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we’re able to treat every hip condition that exists. We have the expertise to treat it with or without surgery. A patient can expect to have a good experience during his or her visit here. My patients come in with a significant amount of pain, limiting their quality of life. The most rewarding part of my work is offering them treatment options that will change and improve the quality of their lives.
