Can stem cells help heal your rotator cuff?

Dr. Gregory was recently invited to speak at the 4th Annual Vail Scientific Summit at the Steadman Phillipon Research Institute.  The topic of this year’s meeting was “Regenerative and Translational Medicine: A Focus on Human Clinical Applications”.  Surgeons and researchers from around the world gathered to share ideas on how to improve patient healing.  One approach is the use of stem cells. Stem cells are cells within your body that have the ability to turn into a variety of different cell types.  Additionally, stem cells can also send out signals to other cells, helping them work more effectively.  For orthopaedic surgeons, because stem cells can turn into bone, tendon, or cartilage, there is huge interest in finding ways to use these cells to heal damaged tissues. Dr. Gregory described a new location where stem cells can be harvested during shoulder surgery, and outlined a strategy that could eventually lead to the use of stem cells during rotator cuff repair.  Dr. Gregory’s research is ongoing, and within the next few years, if experiments show good results, you may be able to participate in trials to see if stem cells truly can help heal your rotator cuff.

Dr. Gregory honored as a 2018 Texas Monthly Super Doctors "Rising Star"

Dr. Gregory was recognized by his peers as a Super Doctors® Rising Star in the July 2018 issue of Texas Monthly. Each year, Texas Monthly asks doctors across the state to nominate colleagues (excluding themselves) who they would trust for their own medical care. The Super Doctors research team then investigates independently. Candidates are evaluated based on peer recognition, professional achievement, and disciplinary history. The highest-ranking nominated physicians are asked to serve on a selection panel, which helps to determine the final list of Super Doctors. Doctors recognized as Rising Stars meet the same criteria as Super Doctors and have been actively practicing for 10 years or less. Only 2.5% of all active physicians are selected to the Rising Star list. “I’m proud to continue to be recognized yearly by my peers for such a prestigious honor.”, said Dr. Gregory.
