Location Availability

My goal is to provide exceptional care that will allow my patients to return to the activities they love.

Dr. Grayson received fellowship training in adult reconstruction at Indiana University Health. He is a Candidate Member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons as well as a member of the International Congress of Joint Reconstruction, and the Florida Orthopedic Society. He focuses on infected joints, partial knee replacements, and specializes in same-day total joint replacement surgery.

Dr. Grayson is the author of Total Joint Arthroplasty for Persons with Osteoarthritis, an article that was featured in PM&R, a peer-reviewed scientific journal of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He also conducted research on the effect of blood transfusion on the clinical outcomes after total joint replacement. He has presented his research at the University of Florida, the University of Indiana and the Alachua County Medical Society.

Dr. Grayson grew up in South Louisiana and obtained his undergraduate degree in biological science at Louisiana State University (LSU). During his time there, he worked as an assistant to the LSU football team orthopedic surgeon, conducted research, and developed a love for Louisiana cooking. While obtaining his degree, Dr. Grayson developed his passion for joint replacements after his father had both knees replaced.

In his spare time, Dr. Grayson enjoys spending time with his family, traveling and cooking.


Over a year ago I had an MRI done on my back because my back, left hip, and left leg were in extreme pain. I could hardly walk to the end of our driveway and back. After seeing a different orthopedic surgeon, I was told that I needed a hip replacement. I knew I had back trouble, but never realized that I needed a hip replacement. Unfortunately, that surgeon did not take the time to answer my questions and the receptionist wanted to schedule my surgery that day. I shared my concerns with my primary care physician, and he told me to go see Dr. Grayson. Dr Grayson gave my husband and I the time we needed to ask our questions. He did tell me I needed the hip replacement, but was in no hurry to schedule my surgery-he said he would do it when I’m ready, I knew that day that he was the right surgeon for me. When I did finally decide to proceed with the surgery, I called with additional questions and was put right through to Dr. Grayson. I was really not expecting to be able to speak with him so soon. His kindness and knowledge was exemplary. On the day of my surgery, Dr. Grayson took the time to see me both before and after the surgery as well as the days I spent in recovery at the hospital. Although he is a very busy doctor, I never felt that he was in a hurry to leave when I had questions. The surgery went very well. I was off pain killers four days after the surgery and off anti-inflammatory medication a week later. Within three weeks I was able to walk without a walker or cane. I just went for my one year checkup on my new hip and everything looks good. My husband and I have been able to go for a walk every day and have gone dancing on occasion. For anyone who needs hip or knee surgery, I would highly recommend Dr. Grayson. I never felt like he was just treating another patient. He treated me with compassion and care as if he were treating a family member.

“I was treated excellent by Dr. Grayson. I presented with two infected knee replacements which I had done seven yrs prior in Indiana. Dr. Grayson cleaned out both knees and replaced some parts and he treated me so kindly. I felt like family to him. He is so personable yet professional that he made me feel at ease and I trusted him fully. Thank you Dr Grayson so very much!”
