Dr. Roberts has been serving the Cincinnati community as a spine surgeon for more than 35 years and has helped countless patients regain their quality of life throughout the duration of his career. An eternal optimist originally from East Liverpool, Ohio, he subscribes to the adage, “smile and the world smiles with you.” Dr. Roberts avidly listens to his patients, and says he’s regularly moved by their eagerness to get better. Dr. Roberts’ best advice for those with back problems: “Find a specialist you’re comfortable with and gain as much insight as you can about the problem, the surgical options, and the expected results. Ask about the success rates for your particular condition.” When he’s not seeing patients, Dr. Roberts enjoys spending time with his family, as well as novel writing and gardening.

Dr. Roberts is the Musculoskeletal Medical Director at The Christ Hospital and is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
