Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
Anterolateral Hip Replacement
Anterolateral hip replacement is considered a minimally invasive option for total hip replacement. It is performed through a single incision on the side of the hip, known as the "anterior." This allows the surgeon to access the diseased hip joint between the muscle groups, leaving the muscles and tendons intact. The surgeon replaces the hip joint after removing and resurfacing the diseased areas of the joint.
Because the muscles and tendons are not cut or detached during this procedure, the prosthetic joint is more apt to remain in place during the recovery process. Patients who have had anterolateral approach total hip replacement do not have the same movement restrictions as those who have had a posterior approach total hip replacement. Anterolateral approach typically results in less pain, quicker recovery and faster return to everyday activities. Most patients undergoing this procedure are able to walk with just a cane after seven to 10 days.
Dr. McGrory is one of Maine's most experienced joint replacement surgeons and a nationally respected leader and researcher. Since coming to Maine in 1994, Dr McGrory has performed 5126 hip and knee replacements, including 591 anterolateral total hip replacements, 1121 total hip revisions, and 824 total knee replacements. By customizing the procedure and implant type for each patient, Dr McGrory excels in optimizing outcomes even in very challenging surgeries and for patients with demanding post-operative expectations.
Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Maine.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.

My goal is to offer safe, cutting-edge, evidence-based, non-surgical and surgical care for adult patients with hip and knee arthritis. My team and I offer comprehensive care and complete follow-up, including revision or re-do surgeries when indicated (patient expectations and active lifestyle sometimes wear out joint replacements!).
I have been interested in the human body and the musculoskeletal system in particular, for as long as I remember. I enjoy the complexity and detail driven process of caring for patients with joint problems, and love the combination of mechanics and understanding of the biological response that surgical reconstruction entails.
