Practicing Since
Dr. Ryder Gwinn is a fellowship trained neurosurgeon who treats patients with a wide range of neurosurgical procedures including traditional open surgery as well as stereotactic and minimally invasive procedures. He has been instrumental in pioneering some of these minimally invasive procedures including Responsive Neurostimulation (RNS) for Epilepsy and MR guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) for Movement Disorders.
I try to combine technology with traditional Neurosurgical techniques to find the least invasive therapy with the highest chance of success for patients suffering from disorders of the spine and central nervous system.
Personal Information
I chose to go into medicine to explore my fascination with the brain and nervous system. I grew up in Philadelphia and have lived in Vermont California and Washington, DC before coming to the Pacific Northwest. I've spent the past 16 wonderful years here working and raising a family. The Pacific Northwest is an amazing distillation of natural wonders and people who have overcome adversity to get here and make a better life for themselves. This has produced a can-do, positive and inclusive culture that I'm proud to be part of today. We love to visit different regions of the Northwest to learn the rich local history and to get a better visual and cultural familiarity with the community of my patients. My wife, 3 children, and I love hiking and skiing in the Cascades, sailing and fishing in the San Juans, and travelling to Hood Canal, the Tri-Cities, and Walla Walla to visit friends and taste Washington wines.
