Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Mr Robert Gregory qualified at Newcastle University in 1981.

He completed his basic surgical training and his Orthopaedic and Trauma training in the region.  He then spent a year in Adelaide, South Australia, where he gained experience in knee ligament reconstruction surgery. Mr Gregory returned to the UK in 1993 to take up a consultant post in Durham where he has since remained.

His early practice focused on general orthopaedics with an interest in soft-tissue knee surgery. Mr Gregory has developed his practice to almost exclusively all types of knee surgery. He also continues to have an interest in general trauma.

From 2005-2015, Mr Gregory held management roles within County Durham and Darlington NHS Trust. This was as Clinical Lead for Trauma and Orthopaedics and then as Clinical Director for Surgery.

Mr Gregory has a longstanding interest in Surgical Education. He is currently Chair of the Specialist Training Committee for Trauma & Orthopaedics. He is also Quality Management Lead in the School of Surgery in the Northern Deanery.  He is an examiner at MRCS and FRCS(Orth) levels and is Regional Specialty College Adviser in Trauma and Orthopaedics.

Mr Gregory’s sporting interests outside medicine include skiing, cycling, running and mountaineering. He has recently fulfilled a longstanding ambition to complete a triathlon.  He has an interest in history, art and travel. Mr Gregory is an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction. He is also an enthusiastic cook – though more in the style of Keith Floyd than Heston Blumenthal!
