About Gregory R. White, MD

Gregory White, MD, was always drawn to helping people through service activities, so a career in medicine was a natural fit. Dr. White is a pediatric orthopedic surgeon specializing in scoliosis and spinal deformity.

Mentors in medical school and during his residency encouraged him to pursue pediatric orthopedics. Working with top pediatric spine surgeons led him to specialize in deformity surgery. Dr. White has been named a Phoenix Magazine "Top Doc" for more than 12 years.

Dr. White's passion for his work comes from helping change a child's life for the better. "I love that I actually get to do it for a living," he says. His approach to patient care is to treat every patient like he would want his child treated.

When he's not working, Dr. White, an Arizona native, helps raise money for charities through music. A bass player and vocalist in local bands, Dr. White has recorded several original projects. He's also a local sports fan and enjoys traveling with his family.
