E. Greg Wood III, MD
Dr. Wood was initially drawn to the practice of medicine because he was around it constantly as a child. His father was a family physician, and therefore most of their discussions concerned the treatment of his patients. In medical school, when the time came to decide which branch of medicine to apply for, Dr. Wood selected orthopedics due to the varied procedures that were performed and that they typically have high success rate and patient satisfaction. During his orthopedic residency, Dr. Wood decided to specialize in spine surgery and entered a spine surgery fellowship in Charlotte, North Carolina. This allowed him to concentrate his efforts on learning one specific aspect of orthopedics.
Dr. Wood’s medical training consisted of medical school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center as well as an orthopedic surgery residents at that same institution. He then moved to Charlotte, North Carolina to complete a fellowship in adult spine surgery. In 1991, he moved back to Jackson and has been in private practice since that time. Dr. Wood’s main interest now is in the surgical treatment of cervical and lumbar disc herniations in the adult population.
