Dr. Dopirak Inducted into Athletic Hall of Fame

Dr. Ryan Dopirak recently returned to his hometown of Canton, Ohio, to be inducted into the Canton Police Boys Club Athletic Hall of Fame.

Dopirak was given special recognition as one of seven members of the “50 Point Club.” Since the 1950s, there have been only seven basketball players from Canton to score 50 points or more in a single game.

Dopirak remains very involved in basketball in the Lakeshore area, where he, his wife Beth and their three sons reside. He coaches his sons’ youth basketball teams and also works with area high school athletes in designing strength and fitness programs.

Dopirak is an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in shoulder surgery, knee surgery and sports medicine at Lakeshore Orthopaedics.
