We're more than physicians...Meet Dr. Alexandra Paraskos
At Orthopedic ONE, we're more than physicians. Like you, we are parents, runners, sports fans, foodies, and much, much more. Get to know central Ohio’s most trusted team of orthopedic experts.
Meet Dr. Alex Paraskos Fellowship-trained Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation physician. Upper Arlington native, OSU Alumni, and family focused.
While we may hear about the desire for “six-pack abs” or “getting ripped” and may even strive for that type of physique, few of us will actually achieve and maintain that elusive six-pack.
The good news is that there is a big difference between getting that look and having core strength and stability. While six-pack abs may look good on the beach, how much will they truly impact your day to day life? For the average person, probably not too much. However improving core strength and stability can have a big impact in preventing injuries and allowing you to better perform the activities you enjoy!Continue...

Dr. Huber Announces His Retirement
A letter from Dr. David Huber
It is with mixed emotions that I officially announce my retirement from active patient care as of December 31, 2019. Aside from fatherhood, being an orthopedic surgeon has been the most rewarding measure of my life. After 39 years of caring for patients it is simply time for me to explore new endeavors. It has been an honor to have cared for you – I will miss my patients most of all.

From the North Pole to Orthopedic ONE: Santa Robert's Story
You can imagine the surprise when none other than the big, jolly guy himself came into Orthopedic ONE for an appointment with our Dr. David Robie. It turns out all those years of toting heavy sacks of toys, scaling chimneys, and balancing kiddos on his lap had taken a toll and Santa was in desperate need of a knee replacement.
He didn’t cry. He didn’t pout. Santa Robert knew just where to go. The team at Orthopedic ONE got him in quickly and scheduled his surgery within a month. Post-surgery, he’s been working hard with the therapy team to ensure he’s ready for the busy months ahead! In fact, he kicked off the season November 15 at Delaware’s Fantasy of Lights event - and “felt great!”
‘Tis the season for overindulges…but you don’t have to! It IS possible to enjoy your favorite holiday foods without going overboard. Check out the tips below and learn how to eat well and be well this holiday season!Continue...

Staying Atop the Ladder
Now that everyone has had ample opportunity to let the Thanksgiving feast digest, it is time to get those holiday decorations out of the attic and out on display! As you get ready to hang the holiday lights and trim the tree, don’t forget to examine the most important piece of equipment needed to perform these tasks safely…your ladder!
According to the World Health Organization, “the United States leads the world in ladder deaths. Each year, there are more than 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries and 300 deaths in the U.S. that are caused by falls from ladders.” Another shocking fact is that, “most ladder deaths are from falls 10 feet or less”. To prevent any such injury or catastrophic event, please keep these following safety guidelines in mind!
DON’T GET “BURNED” THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year full of family, friends and of course, food! Regardless of how you decide to prepare your turkey for the big feast, make sure to take the proper precautions to prevent any unnecessary emergencies.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, “Cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and injuries.” Specifically, leaving the kitchen unattended while cooking. In fact, fire departments respond to an average of 166,000 home fires per year involving cooking equipment.
