Dr. Rohl is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon fellowship trained in spinal surgery. He has a special interest in degenerative conditions and deformity of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. Dr. Rohl incorporates minimally invasive techniques when appropriate. His philosophy is that surgery is sometimes necessary, but many times conservative treatment will help the patient's underlying condition and overall quality of life. He feels we need to look at all factors to determine the most appropriate treatment course.
Dr. Rohl was born in western New York but later moved to central Ohio and graduated from Buckeye Valley High School. He stayed in central Ohio and attended Otterbein College in Westerville where he received his Bachelor's Degree in Health Sciences. He attended medical school at the Ohio University of Osteopathic Medicine.
