Mary Ryan is an Occupational Therapy Assistant who works with our Hand Therapy Team at EmergeOrtho’s Greensboro location. She earned her Occupational Therapy Assistant license in 2022 after years of education and originally interning/working at EmergeOrtho beginning in 2017. Mary chose to focus her career on outpatient orthopedics enabling her to thrive in an energetic environment and care for a diverse patient population.

Together with Certified Hand Therapists, Mary provides treatment for patients experiencing orthopedic injuries and conditions of the upper extremity. Her focus is caring for the muscles, joints, and bones of the hand, wrist, and elbow. While her primary focus may be on a specific area of the body, Mary’s genuine concern for her patients is extraordinary. She believes a patient’s active involvement in their treatment plan is essential for optimal recovery. Her treatment approach is geared to the specific needs of each patient, as well as the direction of the patient’s hand therapist and physician/surgeon.

“The opportunity to help improve patients lives,” Mary says is what she enjoys most about being an occupational therapy assistant. During injury recovery, progress can be measured with successes, small and large. Mary is delighted to help the patients through their journey back to their new normal. She expects patients will finish each of their appointments with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
