Dr. Gregory Presents New Research on Surgical Repair of Pectoralis Major Muscle Ruptures
Dr. Gregory is the lead author on a new study presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA. The AAOS annual meeting is the largest gathering of orthopaedic surgeons in the country. The study compares different methods of surgical repair of pectoralis major ruptures. Pectoralis major ruptures typically occur in athletes and recreational weightlifters. Surgical intervention is usually needed to restore strength and function. Dr. Gregory’s research evaluates the strength of different repair techniques to help surgeons determine the best way to fix these injuries.
