Dr. Gregory was recently featured on the ROOT Sports Houston Rockets All-Access show. He discussed the role of the rotator cuff in shoulder function, described how rotator cuff tears can occur, and explained what treatment options exist to eliminate pain and restore function.

Dr. Gregory is attending the 2015 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting from March 25-28, 2015. This meeting is the largest gathering of orthopaedic surgeons in the United States, and provides a valuable opportunity for physicians to share research and insight on the latest innovations in orthopaedic care.
In the December edition of Techniques in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, a research team including Dr. Gregory published a manuscript entitled “Rotator Cuff Repair: Update on Biologic Strategies”. In this manuscript, biologic additions to rotator cuff repair are highlighted and discussed. These biologic strategies include options such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which is currently being explored as a way to improve the potential of the rotator cuff tendon to heal back to the bone.
Dr. Gregory has accepted a position as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School. UT-Houston has a renowned orthopaedic surgery department, and helps to improve the quality of life of patients throughout the greater Houston area. Dr. Gregory’s practice as a shoulder and elbow specialist will be primarily based out of the Ironman Sports Medicine Institute at Memorial City.
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.
