Our Specialties


Columbus Orthopaedic Clinic is a compassionate group of orthopedic surgeons and physicians who are specialists in their own areas of orthopedics, including knee, shoulder, hip, spine (back & neck), hand & wrist, foot & ankle, sports medicine, and pain management.

Our multispecialty group of Orthopedic Doctors, Sports Medicine Specialists, Spine Surgeons, Pain Management Specialist, Nurse Practitioners, Occupational Therapist,  and Physical Therapists treat a full range of orthopedic conditions, sports injuries, and urgent care for broken bones, torn ligaments, sprains, strains, as well as general orthopedics and chronic pain management. 

Our goal with treatment is to help you recover as quickly and safely as possible. We always strive to begin treatment with conservative, nonoperative care. However, there are some orthopedic injuries that require urgent care and orthopedic surgery, as well as, some orthopaedic conditions that will only get better with surgery.
