It’s Time to Get Back to Working, Playing and Living.

Ronald Gregush, MD

Dr. Gregush is a fellowship-trained board certified orthopedic surgeon. He specializes in arthroscopic surgery and sports medicine and has a particular interest in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, hip, and knee.

Dr. Gregush received his medical degree from Washington University Medical School in St. Louis and then stayed on to complete his orthopedic surgery residency training at Washington University. During that time, he worked with the team physicians of the St. Louis Rams, St. Louis Blues, and St. Louis Cardinals.

Dr. Gregush then went on to complete a fellowship in sports medicine, arthroscopy, and reconstructive surgery at the esteemed Southern California Orthopedic Institute. During his time there he had the opportunity to train with some of the pioneers of shoulder arthroscopy. He received extensive training in arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle. He also conducted research on arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and ankle, which has been published and presented at national and international conferences.

Dr. Gregush received his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College, where he graduated summa cum laude with high honors. He was also inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society and received the Chandler T. White 1916 Research Prize in Chemistry.

In his spare time, Dr. Gregush enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. His hobbies include snow skiing, water skiing, hiking, and running. He also speaks fluent Slovak.

As an active runner, hiker, and skier, I love being able to enjoy everything the beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer. For that reason, I particularly enjoy working with patients who are active and looking to return to the level of activity they had before they experienced their orthopedic setback. Whether you are a 16-year-old soccer player, a 33-year-old marathon runner, a 50-year old who enjoys walking, or a 65-year-old who wants to throw the ball with your grandkids, I will take the time to sit down with you to figure out why you are having trouble doing the things you want to be doing, and together we will come up with the best solution for you. Each patient is different and I believe it is my job to get to know you, listen to your concerns, understand your expectations, and provide you with the best surgical and non-surgical options for getting you back to being active and enjoying your life.
