About Dr. Collar

Dr. Ryan Collar is a double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with a background that includes the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, University of Michigan Medicine and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Collar is an expert in facial reanimation surgery and facial nerve disorders, complex facial reconstruction, advanced cutaneous oncology, and aesthetic surgery.

Dr. Collar is the author of over thirty publications including in the New England Journal of Medicine, Cancer, and Journal of American College of Surgeons, and he maintains a funded basic science lab relationship that explores biomaterials and devices for peripheral nerve surgery.

Dr. Collar's surgery has been featured on NBC and ABC news as well as CBS's The Doctors, and published by Buzzfeed as one of the greatest human accomplishments of 2012 for 'growing an ear in a patient's arm'. Collar has received numerous awards for his work including the Cincinnati Business Courier's Forty under 40 award, Cincinnati Magazine's Top Doctor Award for Plastic Surgery, the Michigan State Medical Society's Kevin Kelly Leadership Award, Venue Magazine's Great Leaders under 40, and distinction for achieving 99th percentile nationally for patient experience by Press Ganey.

Double board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Collar sits on the former's national leadership Committees for Quality and Safety and Medical Informatics.

Collar graduated from the College of the Holy Cross where he was Phi Beta Kappa and class valedictorian, the first ever Division 1 NCAA quarterback to achieve this distinction. Also a graduate of MIT Sloan School of Management, Collar co-founded a health tech and services company that is the largest of its kind in the US.

Collar maintains a commitment to service through medical mission trips throughout Central America to treat children with congenital deformity, and he is a former member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps having lived, coached and taught on the Cheyenne and Crow reservations before beginning his healthcare career.
