Orthopedic ONE physicians making a difference through education...

Orthopedic ONE was recently recognized by the American Academy of Family Physicians as an Active Teacher in Family Medicine, for our role in the education of the Riverside Family Medicine Residency Program. 


Dr. Ken Westerheide featured in Muirfield Living Magazine

I grew up in Mt. Vernon, Ohio and came from a large family of 8 children. My father was a physician, so we spent a lot of time in the hospital waiting rooms after school and sport practices doing our homework while waiting for a ride home. Therefore, I was exposed to the medical field every day and that interested me. Also, I had an interest in science and figuring out how the body works, so the combination led me to medicine. My father and several older siblings went to the University of Dayton, and I visited them fairly often and really enjoyed the atmosphere, so I chose to attend UD and major in pre-medicine studies, ironically, having the same advisor as my father nearly 35 years later!


Dr. Joel Politi featured in Bexley Living Magazine

Orthopedic One currently employs over 500 and is the result of a 2013 merger between Ohio Orthopedic Center of Excellence and The Cardinal Orthopedic Institute.

Bexley resident Dr. Politi has been in private practice for over 15 years here in Columbus; when he started he joined Dick Briggs, Bud Houser and Dennis Taylor in a small orthopedic group called Central Ohio Orthopedic Group. As a group they grew the practice with mergers and acquisitions of top young surgeons to become The Cardinal Orthopedic Institute, where Dr. Politi served as President.

From there, he and the partners founded Orthopedic ONE in 2016, creating the largest physician-owned orthopedic and sports medicine practice in the state of Ohio. “It was important that we protect our role as physician owners, which affords us the right to help our patients decide what is best for them, and ensure they experience the highest quality of care and service.”
