About Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton


About The Practice

Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton is a one-stop-shop for medical imaging, durable medical equipment, physical therapy, treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, and orthopedic surgery, with two convenient locations in Dayton and Tipp City, Ohio. With 50-plus years as an established medical practice, Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton is the oldest and most respected orthopedic practice in the region.

The practice began in 1971 as Dayton Orthopaedic Associates in a downtown location with only two doctors, Dr. Pietro Seni and Dr. Daniel Camacho. In the early years, their doctors were general orthopaedists. However, Dr. Camacho wanted to limit his practice to hand surgery. It was then decided that all physicians would have a specific specialty – a unique concept in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1980 the practice’s name was changed to Orthopaedic and Hand Surgeons and was located on Woodman Drive in Dayton.

Dr. Frank Mannarino (sports medicine) joined the practice in 1981, followed by Dr. Richard Forster (total joint replacement) and Dr. Paul Nitz (sports medicine) in 1991. Gradually, the practice kept growing and solidifying the subspecialty orthopaedic philosophy. Dr. Eugene Kim (hand) joined the group in 1998, followed by Dr. Kevin Paley (sports medicine), who moved his practice to the Orthopaedic Institute in the early 2000s. Dr. Jeffrey Hoskins came to the practice in 2005 following his spine fellowship. Most recently, Dr. Ryan Bauman (joint replacement) joined Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton within the 2010-2011 year, rounding out their scope of specialty services.

The practice continued to expand, and in 1992, we built the current facility on Woodman Drive and changed their name to Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton, Inc. The practice has grown significantly in more than 35 years, spanning three buildings and growing from only four full-time employees in 1971 to 75 today. Another major step was taken in 2003 with the addition of a physical therapy and, subsequently, a hand therapy department. Those departments continue to be on-site and available to their patients but now reside within the KMC network.

The physicians at the Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton, Inc. are experts in treating diseases of the human musculoskeletal system. The experienced team of orthopedic specialists includes surgeons with a wide range of expertise, allowing them to treat neck pain, back pain, hip pain, upper extremity pain, disc herniation, and many other causes of pain and disability. Their diagnostic imaging has expanded from X-Ray to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The goal of the Orthopaedic Surgeon is to facilitate a patient’s total recovery and full resumption of a normal lifestyle.

Orthopaedic Institute of Dayton is proud to have the only orthopedic surgery center in the Dayton, Ohio, area, and they also offer many cutting-edge nonsurgical treatments, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, laser therapy, and ultrasound-guided injections.
