Steven T. Gaines, M.D.

I enjoy working with patients of all ages, and find that after more than 20 years in practice, I’m able to offer a more personal understanding of whatever injury or condition they may be facing

Dr. Steven T. Gaines is a general orthopedist with expertise in arthroscopy, adolescent and adult sports injuries, and knee and hip replacement. He maintains a research interest in simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty and, with Dr. Robert Steensen, has performed this unique procedure more than 400 times—one of the largest series of its kind in the country.

Dr. Gaines offers his patients a unique perspective on sports injuries as a basketball player at the collegiate level; as a patient who has undergone surgery as a result of his sports involvement; as a parent to four children who have played at both high school and collegiate levels and experienced associated injuries; and as a physician who has been treating athletes for more than 20 years.

Following his undergraduate studies at Duke University, Dr. Gaines received his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina, and then completed his residency at the Medical College of Ohio in Toledo, Ohio and the Mount Carmel Medical Center. He is board certified from the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons; a member of the Ohio Orthopaedic Society and Columbus Orthopaedic Society; a fellow in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons; and an original member of Duke University’s Bassett Society, comprised of former Duke University athletes who have pursued medical careers and support other Duke athletes entering medicine.

When I entered your office, I started with the most friendly and helpful receptionist. I didn't mind... Read More
