Ryan is an orthopaedic surgeon, specializing in sports medicine surgery, hip preservation surgery, and knee and anterior hip replacements.
He focuses the hip preservation portion of his specialty towards treating non-arthritic hip disorders. He treats hip conditions such as hip impingement, labral tears, and hip dysplasia through hip arthroscopy and other joint preserving surgeries.
Additionally, Ryan is the only physician in the state of Alabama trained to perform periacetabular osteotomy, a surgical procedure to treat hip impingement (FAI) and hip dysplasia --congenital disorders that often go undiagnosed in adolescents and young adults.
Ryan developed an expertise in sports medicine and hip preservation surgery during his fellowship at Birmingham's American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI). He then completed a fellowship in Bern, Switzerland, training alongside the world's top innovators in hip preservation and surgical treatment of hip pathology in adolescents and young adults.
"We are excited to welcome Dr. Ryan to our practice," said Lyle Cain, Jr., MD, the managing partner at Andrews Sports Medicine. "He was a valuable asset to our team during his ASMI sports medicine fellowship."
Ryan's previous sports medicine experience includes working alongside various organizations as part of their medical team, including the University of Alabama football team and University of Alabama athletics, SEC Baseball, the Birmingham Barons, the Birmingham Ballet, Cordova High School, Athletes Without Limits, New York Public School football, and New York University and Long Island University athletics.
