A professor of Pediatric Orthopaedics at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Eric J. Wall, MD, specializes in sports medicine and scoliosis treatment.
Dr. Wall completed his orthopaedic residency at the University of California, San Diego. He is fellowship trained in biomechanics and spine research at the University of California, San Diego, and pediatric orthopaedics at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. In addition, Dr. Wall holds a certificate in Sports Medicine and is recognized as a national leader in pediatric sports medicine. Dr. Wall’s clinical interests include endoscopic pelvic surgery, osteochondritis dissecans, scoliosis, sports-related injuries, orthopaedic basic science research and orthopaedic management of myelomeningocele.
Eric Wall, M.D. has rapidly established himself in pediatric sports medicine, as well as endoscopic surgery. He has made important contributions to endoscopic surgery through his basic science research efforts in video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) and his innovative creation of an endoscopic pelvic osteotomy technique. Dr. Wall has developed new techniques for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, the treatment of patella dislocations and osteochondritis dissecans in young patients. He also co-founded Research in OsteoChondritis of the Knee (ROCK), the multidisciplinary OCD (osteochondritis dissecans) Study Group of North America.
Dr. Wall stepped down as the division director in August 2010. His focus will now be to concentrate on his revolutionary treatment of early onset scoliosis using spine staples, which were recently FDA approved and is the first and only approved by the FDA. The technique can eliminate extensive spinal fusion to correct an abnormal curvature by stapling together the growth plates on the actively growing side of the deformity to allow the other side of the spine to catch up.
