Southeast Georgia Health System is pleased to welcome
Gregory Kelley, M.D., physiatrist, to
Summit Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery and the Brunswick Campus medical staff.
From an early age, Kelley knew he wanted to work in health care. “I
ultimately decided to pursue medicine after overcoming injuries from my
athletic career. Learning from my own experiences, I understand the importance
of regaining overall function and wellness,” says Kelley. “Helping
my patients return to the hobbies and recreational activities they love
is very rewarding.”
After earning a medical degree from St. George's University School
of Medicine in St. George, Grenada, Kelley completed his internship for
internal medicine at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ. He
then finished his residency at MedStar Health/Georgetown-National Rehabilitation
Hospital in Washington, D.C., focusing on physical medicine and rehabilitation.
“I believe that collaborating with patients as a team effort in their
care achieves the best outcomes and satisfaction,” Kelley shares.
“There’s no such thing as a ‘cookie cutter’ approach
to medicine, and I treat each patient according to their own specific
needs while taking into consideration their goals and wishes.”
Practicing physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), Kelley primarily
sees patients with musculoskeletal and neurologic conditions, ranging
from sports injuries to more significant debilitating illnesses, such
as spasticity and headaches.
“I chose PM&R as my specialty because I enjoyed a variety of
sciences during my medical training, including anatomy and biomechanics,
sports medicine and neurology,” Kelley explains. “PM&R
allows me to continue enjoying that variety in the patients and conditions
When Kelley isn’t practicing medicine, he enjoys playing golf, biking,
skiing and traveling with his wife. “A good day for me is being
outside with my wife and our dog on a hike or bike ride, going out on
the water, or enjoying a sunset walk on the beach.”
Kelley joins a four-member team of providers at Summit Sports Medicine
& Orthopaedic Surgery in Brunswick. To learn more, visit
