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 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.

    Dr Ryan shows care and concern for me always. He's never to busy. Always pleasant and professional. When my dog died I missed my appointment I messaged him and told him why. He was so sweet stating how sorry he was. Then when I had my visit he told me again. Dr Ryan has been my doctor for over 4 years. He's the kindest most special doctor I have ever been to.

    Dr. Ryan is outstanding. He investigated my problem thoroughly; referred me as needed; explained the rationale for his decisions in great detail; and made me feel at ease with his care and concern.

    Dr. Ryan is a wonderful & caring physician. He is always friendly & takes the time to review the X-ray results on the computer, asks how I have been & if there are any new concerns & also discusses the status of my prosthetic hip & my other hip (level of arthritis). I would recommend anyone to see Dr. Ryan if they are considering a hip replacement/evaluation. He is one of the few physicians with both great clinical skills & personality.

    He looked at xrays and listened/asked questions about my thigh. Then explained very clearly what he thought was happening and what I should do going forward. I always know with Dr. Ryan that I will get very good advice and care.
