Dr. Bhatia's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bhatia "Dr. Sanjeev Bhatia is a Board Certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine and arthroscopic treatment of shoulder, hip and knee injuries. He is presently the Director of Hip Arthroscopy and Joint Preservation at Mercy Health in Cincinnati, Ohio and Clinical Instructor for the Cincinnati Sports Medicine Orthopaedic Fellowship, one of the oldest Sports Medicine Fellowships in the country. He is also a consulting team physician for the United States Ski Team as well as a consulting physician for athletes from Miami University, the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour and Cincinnati Ballet. He has personally cared for and treated thousands of individuals including professional athletes and US Olympians in addition to high school, college and recreational athletes. Dr. Bhatia brings with him unique experience in repairing and reconstructing hip labral tears, which involves the ring of cartilage that goes around the hip socket. Many athletes—particularly hockey, soccer, and football players, as well as golfers, tennis players and ballet dancers—are at high risk for developing hip labral tears and femoroacetabular impingement, a potential cause of early arthritis. In the past, many of these injuries went undiagnosed and untreated, but thanks to new techniques used by a select group of doctors, including Dr. Bhatia, physicians are able to successfully treat these injuries. Originally from Milwaukee, WI, Dr. Bhatia attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Northwestern University Medical School. From there, he completed his orthopaedic residency at Rush University Medical Center where he trained under the guidance of some of the country's leading sports medicine and hip preservation surgeons. After his training in Chicago, Dr. Bhatia went on to complete a sports medicine and hip arthroscopy fellowship at the renowned Steadman-Philippon Research Institute in Vail, Colorado. As a fellow, Dr. Bhatia gained expertise in the most innovative techniques in hip arthroscopy, complex knee ligament surgery, shoulder instability and rotator cuff repair. He participated in care of athletes from the NHL, NFL, PGA, USTA, and international Olympic teams, among others. Additionally, he provided medical coverage to the United States Ski and Snowboard teams at Vail, Beaver Creek and Copper Mountain, and traveled as a team physician with the US Women's Ski Team to Switzerland and the US Moguls teams to British Columbia. Dr. Bhatia is currently a consulting team physician for the United States Ski and Snowboard teams. Dr. Bhatia's clinical and research interests involve injuries of the hip, knee and shoulder. He has authored over 50 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on topics related to shoulder instability, rotator cuff repair, hip arthroscopy, complex meniscus repair, ACL reconstruction and cartilage restoration. He has presented his research at national and international conferences and has been highlighted in various national media bulletins on the advancement of orthopaedic care. Dr. Bhatia currently serves as an invited reviewer to the American Journal of Sports Medicine. In addition to his passion for advancing the field of sports medicine, Dr. Bhatia is known for his humility and patient friendly disposition. He aims to treat every patient as he would a member of his own family and believes that improved outcomes are achieved with effective communication, helping patients understand their condition and involving them in the medical decision making process. Dr. Bhatia typically follows a conservative approach in treating his patients, exploring extensive non-surgical treatment options first, followed by application of advanced surgical techniques if necessary, all in an effort to return patients to their previous level of activity and function. Outside of work, Dr. Bhatia enjoys spending time with his family and friends in addition to tennis, skiing, biking, hiking and photography."
