A Message from Dr. John W. Cory M.D.

Very few people know, as a child, what they want to do for the rest of their life, but I did. I grew up with medical students running through our home on a regular basis. My dad was a professor at two different medical schools and he really believed in what he did and so did I. I knew that not only did I want to become a doctor, but I more specifically wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. Many doctors go to medical school and change their mind but I never got side tracked. Combining medicine and sports was a natural fit for me. I played soccer from the age of 7 and finished up my athletic career playing soccer for Wake Forest University.

When I told my father I wanted to go to medical school he gave me some advice. He told me to become the kind of doctor that I would send my mom or sister to. That was good advice and I really took that advice to heart. I did go on to attend medical school at Wake Forest University, residency in orthopedic surgery and then completed a fellowship in foot and ankle at the American Sports Medicine Institute. I really enjoy what I do and I think it shows. Our office is a fun place and I try to treat every patient as if they were my family. I work hard to make sure that the treatment you get is the treatment you need. I will do my best to keep you out of the operating room but, when it is necessary, I will do my best to explain the reason why and help you feel comfortable with the decision we make together.
