The CHI Oakes Hospital Therapy Dept. currently consists of Physical Therapists, Ryan Lagodinski, DPT and Amber Patzlaff, DPT. Occupational therapy is PRN and is covered by Tristan Johnson, OT.

Ryan is a Board Certified Doctor of Physical Therapy. He is a 2006 graduate of the University of Mary, Bismarck, ND. He has practiced in the Oakes community since 2006. He joined CHI Oakes Hospital in 2011 as the therapy department manager and established the outpatient PT clinic as well as maintained the duties of inpatient and swing bed. With growth in those departments, brought a necessary hire for another full time PT. Amber Patzlaff, a 2010 graduate of the University of Mary, joined our staff in 2013.

Ryan is currently focused primarily on the outpatient side of the department, specializing in orthopedic injuries and rehabilitation, sports medicine, neurologic and vestibular rehab and pain management with a special interest in manual therapy (joint manipulation).

Ryan is currently in the finishing stages of completing his Board certification in Manual Therapy from the University of St. Augustine, FL. He is more than pleased with the growth and development of his practice here at CHI Oakes Hospital and has a strong belief in community and rural health care. He is active in the community of Oakes and works closely with the Oakes schools, providing sports medicine to all athletics. Ryan and his wife, Cassie, enjoy the community and the people. In January of 2015 they opened “THE JIM”, a full service 24/7 fitness center in hopes of community benefit.

Amber’s primary focus is inpatient and swing bed care, with a mix of outpatient and home health services. Her areas of expertise include orthopedic rehabilitation, vestibular and balance impairments, muscle dysfunctions, wound care, lymphedema management and manual therapy. Amber has been an excellent fit here at CHI Oakes Hospital, often caring for patients she has known a large majority of her life, having grown up here in the Oakes area.

Tristan is an occupational therapist that provides OT services to our inpatient and swing bed patients on a limited basis. She has been gracious in providing us with her services when Amber or Ryan are unavailable for an extended period of time. She has agreed to continue to be part of our team to ensure our patients are cared for.
