More information

Who was T.F. Ryan?

Dr Thomas Francis Ryan was a surgeon who practised in Nhill in the Wimmera region of Victoria from 1901-1926.  He performed surgery, including ophthalmic and dental surgery, in the Nhill and Mira private hospitals.  He was the first private practice surgeon to obtain and use radiology routinely in the assessment of patients prior to surgery, with the only other unit being at The Royal Melbourne Hospital.  After he left Nhill in 1926 he was accepted as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 1927, which was a rare accolade for a doctor outside the major cities. In 1945 he made several bequests to the University of Melbourne for student prizes in anatomy and radiology. He never married and died on 7th Dec 1955, aged 91.
