“I have always found Dr. Bernaki friendly and competent. He puts you at ease”
– Sandra D.

Dr. Bernacki joined Orthopedic Specialists & Sports Medicine in 2006. He chose to practice in Licking County due to the increased need in the subspecialty of foot and ankle, and it also being an excellent community to raise his family. He is board-certified in general orthopedic surgery and is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). He served as chairman in the department of surgery at the Medical Center of Newark from 2009 – 2010. He is a consultant for Kindred Healthcare and provides quarterly joint replacement education classes.

In addition to the above, Dr. Bernacki is now certified to implant the Oxford™unicompartmental knee replacement by Biomet. This minimally invasive partial knee replacement can be performed as an outpatient procedure in order to get you back to your active lifestyle as soon as possible. He also performs all other types of joint replacements, including total hip arthroplasty, total knee arthroplasty, and primary shoulder replacement. Dr. Bernacki thrives to keep patients educated as well as the community and routinely schedules joint replacement talks at his office and other locations.

He was born in Pennsylvania and graduated cum laude from Miami University prior to obtaining his medical degree from The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He completed his orthopedic residency at Mount Carmel Health System in Columbus, Ohio. Outside of work, Dr. Bernacki enjoys spending time with his family as well as outdoor recreation, exercising, scuba diving, and traveling.

Published Papers

“My appointment with Dr. Brad Bernacki was very informative & personal as I described my back issues. After reviewing my MRI, Dr. Bernacki prescribed physical therapy sessions with Orthopedic Specialists & Sports Medicine. My meeting with Ian resulted in a program of exercises to strengthen my back, improve my posture, & to diminish my pain. Ian, Rachael & Bethany all worked with me to reach those goals, giving me encouragement & advice along the way. Scheduling appointments to suit my calendar always handled cheerfully. I recommend Dr. Bernacki & Orthopedic Specialists & Sports Medicine to anyone needing help with their recovery.”
