Richard E. Gray, MD

Board Certified Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon

Specializing In:

Spine Surgery, Hip and Knee Replacement, Sports Medicine
"My goal is to team with my patients and their families to accurately and clearly define their problems, provide understandable treatment options, and to carry out our plan with professional, precise and expert care. Our first goal is to avoid surgery, but when it’s necessary, I have the perspective to advise the best surgical procedure for the patient as an individual. Most importantly, I meticulously oversee the rehab and recovery phase of my patients to get them back to their best selves as soon as possible." -
