About Me

My patient care philosophy is focused on providing high quality, evidence-based care. This requires taking time to understand each patient’s unique situation, challenges and goals.

My specialty is orthopedic surgery, with a primary focus in hip preservation. I treat all types of hip conditions. My surgical expertise includes hip arthroscopy, hip osteotomies and anterior hip replacement.

The most satisfying aspect of my job is meeting a patient who needs help, creating a personalized treatment plan and following through until full recovery is achieved. It’s incredibly rewarding to see our patients regain the ability to enjoy an active lifestyle.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because it offers a warm, collegial environment, with continuous efforts to improve the quality of the care we provide and genuine compassion for those who need help.

    I don't think I can put into word how I feel about Doctor John Ryan . The respect the care this man gave me before during and after my surgery . I can't say enough nice things about him. I have never had a Doctor call me at home after any surgeries. He not only called me one time, But 4 calls in the first week. His staff did the same.

    Dr. Ryan always takes the time needed to explain to me in detail my situation. He also shows me my MRIs on the computer. He asks me what treatments I want or don't want.
