Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chertow "Dr. Chertow is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip, knee, ankle and shoulder arthroscopy, minimally invasive and computer-assisted joint replacements, and sports medicine. Dr. Chertow attended The Ohio State University where he was a varsity wrestler for the nationally ranked Buckeyes and named to the All Big 10 scholar athlete team. He completed an extra year of training undergoing a Fellowship in Orthopedic Sports Medicine at the World Renowned Hughston Clinic, which was the birthplace of Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. He is one of the few Sports Medicine Fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeons in the area. Dr. Chertow prides himself on keeping his patient schedule running on time so his patients are not waiting and thoroughly educating his patients about their injuries and potential surgeries. He returns all of his patient's questions himself. Dr. Chertow considers himself very conservative and will exhaust all non operative treatment prior to turning to surgery."
