Get to know Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Philip J. Kregor, who serves patients in Columbus, Georgia.

A board-certified orthopedic surgeon and orthopedic traumatologist, Dr. Kregor works with patients at Hughston Clinic in Columbus, Georgia. He specializes in complex fracture care, pelvic and acetabular surgery, and complex hip surgery.

Since its founding in 1949, Hughston Clinic has sought to provide the most advanced orthopedic services available to men, women, and children of all ages and all walks of life. 

Today, it comprises a number of leading institutions for the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic conditions, as well as orthopedic research, education, and training.

Prior to coming to Hughston Clinic, Dr. Kregor served as Director of the Hip and Fracture Institute and as an Associate Professor in the Orthopedic Surgery Division of Meharry Medical College. 

Currently, he is affiliated with the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital, TriStar Skyline Medical Center, and TriStar Centennial Medical Center.

A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Dr. Kregor attended the University of Kentucky, from which he graduated in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering, and minors in English and Chemistry. He then attended the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honorary society in 1987. He earned a Master of Business Administration degree at the Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management, completed his surgical internship at Duke University Medical Center, and completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at University of Washington / Harborview Medical Center. While in Washington, he was awarded the first International Fellowship in Pelvic and Acetabular Trauma, and completed the AO Jack McDaniel Fellowship in trauma, studying in Germany and Switzerland.

Licensed to practice medicine in Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama, the doctor is board-certified in orthopedic surgery by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS). The ABOS is an organization with the goal of establishing educational and professional standards for orthopedic residents and surgeons as well as evaluating the qualifications and competence of orthopedic surgeons.

In good standing with a number of professional organizations, Dr. Kregor is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the Orthopedic Trauma Association, the American Orthopedic Association, and other international and regional organizations.

Having been published in major orthopedic and trauma medical journals, he presents his scientific research at national meetings and symposiums. He plans to continue his research interests through the Hughston Foundation, Inc.

Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

Throughout his illustrious career, Dr. Kregor has received various accolades, including the PeriOperative Facilitation Award by the Vanderbilt Medical Center in 2007, and the Best Doctors in America Award from 2005 through 2013. Furthermore, he was named one of “The Top 29 Orthopedic Traumatologists in the US” by Orthopedics This Week in 2012.
