Welcome to Episode #24 of the Princeton Spine and Joint Center Podcast. In this episode Dr. Scott Curtis, Sports Medicine Director at Princeton Spine and Joint Center, sat down with Dr. Greg Kelley, Princeton Spine & Joint Center’s newest physician. Dr. Kelley joined PS&J Center from the Georgetown Hospital System, where he specialized in musculoskeletal medicine.
Scott and Greg had an in-depth conversation about Elbow Pain. They discussed the general approach they take with patients with elbow pain, the different pathologies, the different diagnostic tests and different treatment plans for individuals with elbow pain.
Greg Kelley, MD is a board certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physician specializing in the care of patients with musculoskeletal and rehabilitation issues. After graduating cum laude from Georgetown University, Dr. Kelley completed his medical school training at St. George’s University School of Medicine before returning to Georgetown University in Washington D.C. and the National Rehabilitation Hospital for his specialty training in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
Dr. Kelley has spearheaded the implementation of the Rehabilitation and Performance Centers of Excellence in local subacute nursing facilities in the Princeton area. He lectures and publishes widely on issues concerning the management and alleviation of patients’ pain. He also seeks to maximize each person’s potential toward the goal of achieving personal peak performance. He emphasizes that achieving peak performance clearly varies among patient populations – professional athletes have different specific expectations than geriatric patients with heart or lung disease. But, at the end of the day, everyone strives to be the best version of themselves that they possibly can and it is in that pursuit that Dr. Kelley finds purpose and passion in his work helping people.
