Ryan Morris, D.O.


Orthopedic Surgeon Ryan Morris, D.O., cares for patients at Lake Regional Orthopedics - Osage Beach and Lake Regional Clinic - Lebanon.

Dr. Morris completed a fellowship in sports medicine and provides surgical and nonsurgical repair of broken bones and torn ligaments and cartilage. He also treats osteoarthritis and repetitive use injuries. Common procedures include arthroscopic (minimally invasive) surgery to repair joints and total joint replacement surgery, including knees, hips and shoulders.

Originally from Rolla, Dr. Morris grew up in a family of engineers. He began his college career as a civil engineer major at Missouri S&T but found himself drawn to health care. To test out his new direction, he became an EMT and served on ambulances and with the Rolla Rural Fire Department.

"I fell in love with taking care of people," he said.

Dr. Morris followed up his residency in orthopedic surgery with a fellowship in sports medicine.

“Sports medicine focuses on providing the quickest rehabilitation,” Dr. Morris said. “That’s important for athletes but it’s also important for anybody who is active, including patients who need to get back to work.”

Few cases he sees in the clinic are emergencies. As a result, it’s important for Dr. Morris to work with patients to determine how best to fit treatment into their lives.

“I strive to personalize my treatment,” he said. “Creating the right care plan requires understanding the patients’ expectations. After exhausting non-operative treatment, if surgery is elected to obtain their goals, we utilize shared decision making to develop the best treatment plan for an accelerated rehabilitation and optimal outcome.”

Dr. Morris joined Lake Regional Orthopedics in 2018. Learn more about orthopedic care and sports medicine at Lake Regional.
