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.

    Absolutely fantastic- Dr. Ryan is a surgeon that goes out of his way to explain everything, he is very respectful, has a great bedside manner and his surgical abilities are top notch! Best of all, he is a great person. I totally trust him. These comments are coming from an RN that was an ICU nurse for 17 years, 10 years in administration and public health. I've seen my share of physicians and other providers that I would never trust them for my care.

    Dr. Ryan is the best doctor I've seen in my entire lifetime. He is caring, through & pleasant. He explains things well and never acts like he's to busy to answer question. I'm so fortunate to have him as my hip surgeon.

    I felt like Dr. Ryan wasn't present at my appointment. That I was wasting his time. I had spent two years working very hard to deliver blood to my AVN Hip and he says "Why are you here?" I wanted to know if any more bone had grown. He just flashed the x-rays on the screen without zooming in for me to see anything. Two years ago he gave me hope, and told me that I had evidence of new bone growth, but time I received rejection. It was if I had overstepped the boundaries coming in for an evaluation during COVID-19.
