Join us in welcoming the newest member of our physician team at Central Indiana Orthopedics, Dr. Ryan Rossos! Board-certified in pain medicine and anesthesia and fellowship-trained in treating chronic pain, Dr. Rossos specializes in techniques to manage and treat a variety of acute and chronic pain conditions, including treating patients who are not candidates for surgery or have failed to get relief from surgery. Using minimally invasive approaches, such as stem cell and platelet-rich plasma treatments, spinal injections, nerve ablations, pain pumps and nerve stimulators, Dr. Rossos targets the source of pain to alleviate discomfort, restore function and improve patient quality of life.
Dr. Rossos’ exposure to medicine began at a young age through his mother who worked as a nurse. He’s always found science and medicine interesting and knew he wanted to pursue that career path to serve others. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Rossos attended Ohio State University for his undergrad in psychology and sociology, and attended Toledo University for a masters in biomedical sciences. For medical school, he chose to travel to Grenada, West Indies, and earned his doctor in medicine at St. George’s University.
After medical school, Dr. Rossos moved to Indiana where he underwent residency in anesthesia at Indiana University School of Medicine. With a desire to help patients suffering from pain, he chose to further his education and pursued a chronic pain fellowship at the University of Wisconsin. Through that experience, he learned the best outcomes come from his team, the patient, physical/occupational therapy and psychological/social services, as appropriate, in the patient’s treatment journey, and chooses to implement that approach in his own practice.
In addition to his specialized training in pain management, Dr. Rossos is also trained in the field of regenerative medicine, specifically adipose stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. These procedures are a newer, more natural way of treating injuries and diseases that uses a patient’s own specially grown tissues and cells for the treatment of damaged joints, muscles, tendons or ligaments. Since not every patient is a candidate for regenerative medicine, Dr. Rossos conducts a thorough examination and history of the patient before a procedure is considered. Together, he and his patient decide if either treatment is a viable option.
What Dr. Rossos enjoys most about his area of medicine is seeing a patient’s pain and quality of life improve. And while he may not be able to cure the source of every patient’s pain, his hope is that he can get their pain to a reasonable level so that they may enjoy a quality life.
When Dr. Rossos isn’t seeing patients, he enjoys tennis, hiking, traveling and outdoor activities. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Rossos at our Anderson or Muncie offices, call 800-622-6575 or request an appointment online.
