Biographical Sketch

Ryan C. Goodwin, MD, joined the staff at Cleveland Clinic in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in September of 2004 after completing special training in Pediatric Orthopaedics and Scoliosis surgery at Children’s Hospital San Diego/University of California at San Diego. Dr. Goodwin completed his residency training in Orthopaedic Surgery at Cleveland Clinic in 2003.

He also served his surgical internship at Cleveland Clinic and received is medical degree at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.  He earned his bachelor’s degree magna cum laude with departmental honors in biomedical engineering from Tulane University in New Orleans, La.

His primary interests include pediatric and adolescent hip disorders, scoliosis and spine deformity, pediatric trauma and clubfoot. To explain further, Dr. Goodwin adds, “I am very interested in newer techniques, both surgical and non-surgical that improve the care of children’s orthopaedic problems."

Dr. Goodwin devotes the majority of his time to patient care, but is also involved in clinical research as well as resident and medical student education.  He currently serves as Assistant Program Director for the Orthopaedic Surgery Residency and holds an appointment as Assistant Professor at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University.

He says the collegial environment and abundant resources that Cleveland Clinic provides are just a few of the motivating factors that enticed him to return to Cleveland Clinic after his fellowship. “I enjoy being a part of a dynamic department as well as a rapidly growing and expanding children’s hospital," he says. 

Dr. Goodwin is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is a member of many organizations which include the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, Scoliosis Research Society and the North American Spine Society.

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. The Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, the Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers’ discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.
