Ryan D. Cieply, M.D.

Hip, Knee and Joint Replacement & Revision

As a board-certified doctor and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Cieply specializes in treating conditions of the hip and knee, primarily arthritis, with joint replacement and revision surgery representing most of his practice.

Dr. Cieply understands that surgery is an important decision, and he’s passionate about ensuring his patients get his “best work,” especially during surgery, so he’s been dedicated to staying current on innovative technologies and surgical approaches throughout his career. After medical school, Dr. Cieply underwent additional specialty training by completing an adult hip and knee reconstruction fellowship at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa, Florida. Additionally, he is certified in Mako SmartRobotics™ for hip and knee replacement and uses muscle-sparing approaches in hip replacement surgery.

Board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, he has been practicing at Central Indiana Orthopedics since 2016. Learn more about Dr. Cieply and his approach to patient care in the video below.

Mako SmartRobotics™

Dr. Cieply has been certified in Mako SmartRobotics robotic arm-assisted surgical technology since 2013. Mako SmartRobotics is an innovative surgical solution for many suffering with painful arthritis of the hip or knee and enables patients to have a more predictable experience when undergoing joint replacement surgery. Before surgery, a CT scan of the hip or knee is obtained for the surgeon to reference during surgery to carry out a more personalized joint replacement procedure. Patient benefits include precise placement of the implant, less pain and a quicker recovery than traditional joint replacements and reduced risk of surgical complications.

Direct Anterior Approach

Dr. Cieply believes in using a direct anterior surgical approach in hip replacement surgery, a muscle-sparing technique that allows an implant to be set without cutting the muscle. During hip replacement surgery using a direct anterior approach, the hip joint is accessed through a natural interval between muscles. Typically, the incision with a direct anterior approach is smaller compared to a traditional approach, and recovery time may be quicker for some patients.
