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 and hip osteotomies.

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.

    It is always good to see Dr. Ryan. We discussed (one more time), the procedure that I need, and he went over all concerns and issues with me.

    Dr Ryan is a great Dr.

    He had not looked at the MRI images before the appointment and declined to view them during the appointment when I offered them. And overall he seemed entirely disinterested in my situation or my pain.

    I was so grateful for the time Dr. Ryan spent with me, carefully going over my imaging, giving detailed information about conservative measures, data re outcomes, etc. It was exactly what I needed and was searching for to be able to make an informed decision. He is clearly an expert and has a warm and caring manner. I'm very grateful.

    Only thing that was bad was my condition - NOT the providers fault. From making the appointment to visit w Dr all informative and very helpful, highly recommended

    Excellent no complaints I would recommend Dr John Ryan and staff and nurses to anyone

  • Reviewed on Feb 07, 2024

    Generally good, but I really wanted more academic/empirical evidence used to justify some of his guidance (not that I mistrust the guidance, but because I want to better understand to better implement it), and that didn't seem forthcoming. He wasn't mean or rude or anything about it, but when I was trying to get the relevant evidence/studies/literature it seemed like I was talking past him. I do realize this is a non-standard request.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 09/29/2023, Dr. Ryan has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
