Ryan Richards, MD obtained a Bachelor of Science in human biology at the University of Utah and a Doctor of Medicine at Albany Medical College in New York. As part of his training, Dr. Richards completed an internship and an orthopedic surgery residency at the Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix Arizona, and a fellowship at the internationally recognized Christine M. Kleinert Institute for Hand and Microsurgery. He is board-certified with the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and specializes as an orthopedic hand and upper extremity surgeon.
Dr. Richards decided to specialize in hand surgery because he enjoys the challenge of working on an anatomically complex area of the body and restoring function to his patients. He strives to provide a patient-centered environment to ensure that each patient in his care feels cared for, heard, and understood.
When he is not taking care of patients, Dr. Richards enjoys spending time with his family, cycling, playing the piano, driving cars, riding motorcycles, archery, target shooting, hiking, and rollerblading.

Here's what Dr. Richards's patients think
Dr. Richards is very easy to talk to and he has a phenomenal bedside manner
Dr. Richards is very easy to talk to and he has a phenomenal bedside manner. He uses the technical terms and then explains what they mean. Definitely the best elbow specialist I have ever gone to.
I recommend them as an office team.:)
Dr. Richards has been wonderful to work with. He fixed my son’s broken thumb with pins and was great to communicate kindly and clearly with him at his level, as well as with me, the parent. He was very thorough and understandable, patient and calm and clear. He did a clean, good surgery inserting the pins and setting my son up to heal well. We anticipate a good recovery from here. We appreciate Dr. Richards. His staff was also all very professional, cooperative, helpful and friendly. I recommend them as an office team.:)
