Ryan E. Blalock, M.D.

Dr. Ryan E. Blalock, MD is a fellowship trained hand and wrist orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the treatment of conditions affecting the upper extremity.  Treatment focuses include upper extremity trauma, fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, other nerve entrapment syndromes, arthritic conditions, and trigger finger.  He offers both open and endoscopic carpal tunnel release as well as wrist arthroscopy.  Dr. Blalock became interested in the hand and wrist due to excellent mentorship during medical school, and now he has made this his life’s work.

Dr. Blalock grew up in a small town in North Georgia and attended college at the University of Georgia where he graduated as a first honor graduate.  Subsequently, he received his medical degree from Washington University in St. Louis, MO and went on to complete residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center-Houston.  After residency, Dr. Blalock completed a prestigious fellowship in hand and wrist surgery at the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center in Philadelphia, PA.

When not operating or caring for patients in clinic you can find Dr. Blalock enjoying outdoor activities including running, cycling, hunting, and whitewater kayaking, especially class V+ creeking, a kayaking discipline which typically involves navigating steep, low volume rivers and creeks.
