Devon J. Ryan, MD

Phone: (315) 251-3162

Dr. Devon Ryan is a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder care.

Prior to joining SOS, Dr. Ryan completed a fellowship in hand surgery at Duke University School of Medicine. He completed his residency at New York University/Langone Orthopedic Hospital where he was Executive Chief Resident. Dr. Ryan received his medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine, received his bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, graduating Magna Cum Laude, and completed a post-baccalaureate premedical program at Bryn Mawr College. He has already published in several peer-reviewed journals, book chapters, and presented at many conferences.

Dr. Ryan takes a patient-center approach to care and emphasizes shared decision-making with his patients. “I work to earn a patient’s trust and best understand their goals. With that foundation in place, we can make a successful treatment plan which may or may not require surgery.” He is expertly trained in larger procedures such as shoulder and elbow joint arthroplasty, as well as complex trauma and microvascular procedures which require the use of the operating microscope. Dr. Ryan also offers a new reconstructive technique for basal joint arthritis to minimize immobilization in patients and allows them to return to activities.

Dr. Ryan provides comprehensive care of the entire upper extremity, from shoulder to fingertip.
