Dr. Ryan L. Nelson’s passion for providing the best care while utilizing the latest techniques and medical advances led him to establish the Shoulder and Orthopedic Institute, located at 9800 Broadway Extension, Suite 203 in Oklahoma City.

A fellowship-trained shoulder specialist who also practices general orthopedics, Nelson can perform complex procedures including total shoulder replacements, reverse total shoulder replacements and rotator cuff and labral repairs. He also provides complete care for sports injuries, workplace accidents and degenerative arthritis.

Dr. Nelson and his Physician Assistants Madison Williams, PA and Murphi Scarborough, PA provide personalized patient care, including operative and nonoperative care, utilizing the latest technology and minimally invasive surgery to provide the best results with the smallest incisions possible.

“At the Shoulder and Orthopedic Institute, we strive to make our patients healthier, so they can lead happier, pain-free lives,” Nelson said. “From your first appointment to post-operative checkups and physical therapy, we focus on getting you back to the things you love as soon as possible.”

He is one of the only surgeons in Oklahoma to have received fellowship training in shoulder and elbow surgery from the American Shoulder & Elbow Surgeons Association, and is certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery. Nelson and his Physician Assistant Madison Williams provide exceptional care for patients in and out of the operating room.

“Dr. Nelson and his staff are fantastic,” said one patient. “He evaluated my problem and gave me options for treatment. When the time came for surgery, I was aware of everything. Surgery and recovery were a breeze, and I highly recommend him.”
