Meet Dr. Chris O'grady

Your Orthopaedic Surgeon and Shoulder Injury Expert

Dr. Christopher O'Grady is more than just a nationally recognized shoulder specialist. As a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, he holds a Certificate of Added Qualifications in Sports Medicine and has devoted his life to treating any and all conditions that stem from the musculoskeletal system, many of which result from situations like injury, arthritis, excessive use and more.

MORE ABOUT DR. O'GRADY

After earning his undergraduate degree in physics at the esteemed Georgetown University, he completed his orthopedic residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as well as at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center Department of Orthopedic Surgery in beautiful New Hyde Park, New York.

He went on to not only the Lombardi Cancer Center for the research phase of his education, but also the aforementioned Georgetown University as well. He acted as a Microbiology Lab Technician for a year, before formally earning his status as Doctor of Medicine in 1997.

Dr. O'Grady believes it's important to offer the widest array of options to his clients, which is why he is an expert in both surgical and non-surgical treatments. While shoulder injuries are one of his primary focuses, he also has a great deal of experience in knees and Regenerative Medicine, too.

When he's not working hard in his office with patients in a one-on-one capacity, Dr. O'Grady also travels the country to speak about innovative new shoulder surgery techniques whenever he has the opportunity to do so.

  • Dr. O'Grady was recently the guest lecturer at the Houston Shoulder Society, where he spoke on complex shoulder replacements and the challenges and benefits contained within.
  • He also spoke at a course titled "Exposures in Total Shoulder Arthroplasty," which was co-chaired by himself and his good friend, Phani Dantuluri, M.D., of Atlanta.
  • Dr. O'Grady was also honored to attend the New Orleans International Shoulder Symposium, where he participated in a focused shoulder course that allowed him to share his insights and experience into important topics like arthroscopy, arthroplasty and others. He valued the opportunity to give his thoughts on multiple topics on Sports Medicine, including how shoulder replacement could be used as a treatment for sports-related injuries. He participated both in teaching lectures and in cadaver labs during the course of the event.

Dr. O'Grady is also very honored to have had the opportunity to consult with the fine folks at NASA, where he helped to develop a plan to prevent shoulder injuries in astronauts. Dr. O'Grady has a number of different research studies that he is currently participating in on both surgical and non-surgical procedures.

Over the last several decades, Dr. O'grady has been the proud recipient of a wide range of awards and honors.

Dating all the way back to when he was named Intern of the Year at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center Department of General Surgery in 1997, he's also received the Resident Travel Award for Orthopedic Research from the American Orthopedic Association and a grant from the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery/Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation Resident Journal Club.

"NO SIGN OF SLOWING DOWN"

Even some of his own patients don't know that Dr. O'Grady also spent time with the United States Navy. From 2002 to 2006, he operated out of the Pensacola Naval Hospital Department of Orthopedic Surgery as a staff member. It was here that he learned an invaluable amount about the various surgical and non-surgical procedures that he would eventually bring with him when he started his own practice - Florida Bone and Joint at The Andrews Institute - in beautiful Gulf Breeze, Florida. He's dedicated himself to serving patients out of that location in any and all ways that he can since September of 2006, and that passion shows absolutely no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
