Dr. Ryan specializes in the treatment of sarcomas (rare bone and soft tissue tumors) and genitourinary cancers (kidney, bladder, prostate and testicle cancers). He strives to offer the latest treatments to his patients through clinical trials. He is inspired by his many patients who received breakthrough treatments in clinical trials before those treatments were widely available.

Dr. Ryan enjoys the Oregon outdoors, fly fishing for steelhead and cycling when he is given the chance. Most of all, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two small children.
