Carmen Quatman

As an orthopedic surgeon, I specialize in orthopedic trauma care with a special emphasis on geriatric care. I’m passionate about integrating cutting-edge technology into clinical care to significantly improve patient outcomes. I believe that everyone deserves the best quality of life no matter what stage of life they are in. I strive to be a catalyst of change through passion, authenticity and dynamic patient-physician relationships, ultimately leading to breakthroughs in orthopedic patient care.

At the age of 17, I sustained a traumatic knee injury and was confronted with news that I may not be able to walk in a few years without significant reconstructive surgery. Ohio State was one of the few centers in the country that could offer the care I needed. The outstanding treatment I received as a patient was a pivotal moment for me. It showed me what excellence meant to me as a patient, physician and researcher.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time outdoors, reading, kayaking, swimming, hiking and relaxing with my family.
