About

Dr. Ries received his medical degree from Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, NH, completed his Surgical Internship at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY, his orthopedic Residency at State University of New York at Stony Brook, and an Arthritis Fellowship at University of Colorado, Denver's Department of Orthopedics. Dr. Ries is Board Certified with the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

Dr. Ries is wonderful in all respects. He listens, answers all questions completely, and is a great surgeon. He performed a knee revision for me with an outcome that I couldn't be more pleased with. Just wish I had him for the first surgery. Recently he did a hip replacement for me. I have arthritis in both hips and knees (replacing parts as needed). I have total and complete confidence in this doctor.

I recommend Dr. Ries without reservation. I interviewed other doctors prior to asking Dr. Ries to do my hip replacement. He is patient, listens, and understands patient concerns. The hip replacement went well, he followed up and made sure that my physical therapy for rehab matched what was needed. The recovery was complete. I forget I have a replacement as I am totally pain free and mobile. I can hike 10 miles and I am no spring chicken. The operation was in 2007 and is as good as new.

I had a great first appointment with Dr. Ries and his staff. Everything from check-in, the appointment, and check-out was outstanding! I felt great that he will assist with my follow-up after my knee replacement.
