Austin V. Stone, MD, PhD, a knee and shoulder specialist, earned his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and a fellowship in sports medicine at the Rush University School of Medicine in Chicago. During his residency, he earned his PhD in molecular medicine and translational sciences with a focus on meniscal injury and osteoarthritis.
Dr. Stone’s goals are treating musculoskeletal injuries and disease to restore an active lifestyle. He has a significant background and training in advanced orthobiologics for treatment of sports injuries and early arthritic disease. Dr. Stone has conducted extensive research on the early mechanisms of cartilage and meniscus injury that lead to osteoarthritis. His additional research interests include orthopaedic clinical outcomes, overhead athlete injuries and cycling injury and performance.
I am an orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine physician who enjoys taking care of athletes and active individuals of all ages. I specialize in orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine conditions of the shoulder, elbow and knee, in addition to cartilage injuries and the use of orthobiologics. As an avid cyclist and runner, I am committed to helping my patients restore an active lifestyle through excellence in musculoskeletal care, continued participation in state-of-art orthopaedic research and dedication to sports medicine.
I enjoy being involved in the community and most enjoy time spent with my family.
