Dr. Jones' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Jones "Dr. Deryk Jones is the Section Head of Sports Medicine and Cartilage Restoration at the Ochsner Sports Medicine Institute. He also covers numerous college and high school teams throughout the New Orleans and surrounding parishes. Dr. Jones received his Bachelor Degrees in Science and Philosophy from Emory University where he played collegiate soccer and then received a Doctorate of Medicine from Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Jones completed an internship in general surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital followed by residency training in orthopaedic surgery at the Harvard Combined Orthopaedics Residency Program in Boston; on completion of this training he was given the distinguished honor of being selected to serve as chief resident at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Jones went on to receive additional training in shoulder surgery and sports medicine completing a fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Jones is board certified through 2020 and has subspecialty certification in sports medicine through 2019. He is a full professor in Orthopaedic surgery at Ochsner Clinical School and the University of Queensland, Australia. On completion of training he joined the faculty of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Tulane University School of Medicine with an adjunct appointment in the Biomechanics Department and currently still holds an appointment as Clinical Assistant Professor at Tulane University. Dr. Jones began research while at Tulane University in cutting edge basic science research on cartilage metabolism and regeneration, bone-tendon healing, periosteum cell characterization as well as softball and baseball throwing mechanics. Currently, as Section head at Ochsner’s Sports Medicine Institute his research has focused on carefully examining clinical outcomes in a variety of operative and nonoperative treatments of sports medicine related injuries. He also has been involved in national policy decisions regarding sports medicine over the last 6 years while serving as the Louisiana state representative for the Council of Delegates in the American Orthopaedic Society of Sports Medicine (AOSSM). One role that he has been tasked with as a result of this appointment involves carefully designing and publishing the Preparticipation Physical Examination (PPE) whose primary objective is to review, evaluate and write the 3rd and 4th edition of the PPE Manuscript published by McGraw-Hill Company. This publication serves as a reference source and provides the PPE forms used by all schools at the high school, College and Professional levels for athletic clearance throughout the United States (U.S.). As one of the founding members of the Cartilage Repair Centers of America, Dr. Jones has been engaged in the study and treatment of articular cartilage injuries particularly focusing on current and future biologic reconstructive techniques. In a landmark article published in the prestigious Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery in 2006, Dr. Jones described a novel technique using replacement xenographic tissue to treat bone and cartilage defects in the knee. Clinically he subspecializes in sports medicine and cartilage regeneration treating pathologic conditions of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle. Some specific techniques offered by Dr. Jones are meniscal transplantation, autologous chondrocyte implantation (Carticel®) regenerating damaged articular cartilage in the knee, shoulder and ankle joints. By using cadaveric tissues he uses a technique termed fresh osteochondral allograft replacement to replace damaged bone and cartilage injuries in situations of extensive joint pathology of the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle. An extension in the treatment of this patient group involves performing minimally invasive joint replacement in patients. Dr. Jones regularly resurfaces the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee joint compartments through small incisions preserving muscles, ligaments and tendons around the joints. He currently uses an arthroplasty technique that utilizes a preoperative CT model to create a custom partial or total knee implant anatomically matching the patient’s anatomy."

Dr Jones, performed surgeries on my shoulder. After two surgeries off trying to reconstruct my shoulder Dr. Jones had no choice but to replace my shoulder.

Terrible. I literally waited months to hear back from Dr. Jones and his staff about my knee injury. I left dozens of messages and was never called back. The least professional medical experience I have ever had.
