I Treat it Like It's my Own Hand


Dr. Gray completed his undergraduate and medical degrees at Brown University in Providence, RI as part of their combined Program in Liberal Medical Education.  He then matched into the combined Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program at RUSH University Medical Center in Chicago, IL--a program consistently ranked in the top 10 nationwide.  At RUSH, he completed trauma surgery training at Stroger Hospital of Cook County and Rockford Orthopaedic Associates (now OrthoIllinois) in Rockford, IL.  Upon graduation, he was awarded the Gunnar Andersson, MD, PhD Award for best Chief Resident by his co-residents.

He spent a year in Rochester, MN at Mayo Clinic completing a Fellowship in Hand and Microvascular Surgery.  There, he was trained in all aspects of general hand surgery, peripheral nerve surgery including brachial plexus reconstruction, and microsurgery including vascularized bone grafting.

After completing training, he practiced and taught hand surgery at University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine in Miami, FL.  There, he focused primarily on complex trauma, reconstruction, and limb salvage and operated at Bascom Palmer hospital as well as Jackson Memorial Hospital.  He was also selected as best Attending Surgeon Teacher by the Orthopaedic Residents.

He has now returned to Chicago's North Shore to bring the highest level of orthopaedic hand and microvascular surgical care to his patients here.  Practicing at NorthShore University HealthSystem, he operates in Evanston, Skokie, Glenview, and Highland Park and sees patients in Skokie, Glenview and Lincolnshire.

 I have been very fortunate to have trained at some of the top institutions in the country and I use this knowledge and experience to provide first-quality care. While I enjoy my roles in education and research, my first priority is to my patients.
