During his Orthopaedic Surgical Residency, Dr. Gregory J. Melkonian decided to further his training in children's Orthopedics. My fellowship was in Los Angeles. The Chief of the Department was very interested in children affected with neuromotor conditions. Thus my practice at Boston Children's is a combination of General Pediatric Orthopedics and Children's Neuromuscular Conditions.

Dr. Melkonian's Care Philosophy
"I grew up in rural Vermont spending a great deal of my time with my Grandparents. My Grandparents owned a Dairy Farm. Initially I considered being a farmer but my Grandfather convinced me to attend the Veterinary College at Cornell University. Just before I graduated I started to consider human medicine since my father was a general surgeon. Thus I decided to attend Medical School after my Veterinary College graduation. While in Medical School I decided to go into Pediatric Orthpaedic Surgery. My Veterinary back ground greatly influence this decision."
