Our Mission

Established in 1960, Columbus Bone, Joint and Hand Surgeons continues to offer longstanding dedicated orthopedic services to our patients from Central Ohio and beyond.

“Our mission is to provide compassionate and professional orthopedic care to meet the needs of our community. We believe in treating our patients equally, with dignity and respect.”

In 1960 an orthopedic office was established at 815 W. Broad Street. In 1979 Dr. William Smith joined Dr. Thomas Meyer and Dr. Karl Kumler to form Columbus Bone, Joint & Hand Surgeons, Inc.

Dr. Richard Fankhauser joined CBJHS in 1997 and the practice has continued to have¬†a strong commitment to Mount Carmel and it’s Orthopedic Residency Program. We remain as always, committed to the highest quality of orthopedic care.

Our goal is to get you back to feeling your best, so you can live the life you want to live.
