FOREST T. HEIS, M.D.In the office of orthopaedic surgeon Forest T. Heis , laughter happens every day. “A sense of humor is a major part of my practice,” he explains. Humor helps pave the way for Dr. Heis to build strong physician-patient relationships. Once this bond is established, “people have faith in me, and they know I’m doing my best for them,” he says. “I believe that leads to better outcomes.”

Dr. Heis has been providing some levity for patients of Commonwealth Orthopaedics and expert treatment for their shoulders, knees and sports injuries for 11 years. After receiving his B.A. degree from Stanford University, he earned a medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He then completed an internship in general surgery and a residency in orthopaedic surgery at Duke University. A fellowship in sports medicine at the Orthopaedic Specialty Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah, followed. Arthroscopic, minimally invasive surgical techniques are his specialty, and he frequently incorporates cartilage regeneration techniques in his practice, he explains.

Whether he is treating an athlete as a team physician for Northern Kentucky University, a middle-aged weekend warrior who tears an ACL or an elderly patient with a fractured hip, Dr. Heis is inspired by success.

“I truly believe that I’m helping people,” he says. “I see people who come in, and they have pain and problems. And then in the same office day, I see people I've treated whose lives are now different, who are pain-free or are nearly pain-free and able to get back to doing the things that they enjoy doing.”

Dr. Heis is board-certified in orthopaedic surgery and lives in Anderson Township with his wife and four children. He serves as president of the Forest Hills Board of Education and enjoys hunting, fishing, camping and running.
