Vytautas Ringus, MD
I come from Chicago and am fellowship trained foot an ankle surgeon. I often get asked where the name comes from; it’s Lithuanian. I attended Cornell University finished with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics. I then attended the University of Illinois at Chicago graduating with an MD and later did my internship and residency at West Virginia University. Subsequently I completed a foot and ankle fellowship in Columbus Ohio with the Orthopaedic and Foot and Ankle Center of Westerville.
I come to Oklahoma with a special interest in complex foot and ankle reconstruction including cartilage grafting, resurfacing and total ankle replacement. In addition, I have extensive experience in sports medicine, general orthopaedics, reconstructing ligamentous injuries and performing ankle arthroscopy (anteriorly and posteriorly).
I enjoy time with my family, playing golf, soccer and volleyball, and estate sales. I love trivia and the arts. I also love Norman and its people and am very glad to have made the choice to come to Oklahoma.
