He was the team physician with the U-17 Men’s National team which won the gold medal at the first World Championships in Hamburg, Germany. He was the team physician and coordinated care for the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans in 2008. He is also a team physician for Xavier University and Delgado Community College, as well as multiple area high schools.

Dr. Montgomery is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and has a subspecialty certification in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Northwestern University in history in 1995 and received his M.D. from Indiana University School of Medicine in 1999. He completed his orthopaedic residency at Tulane University in 2004.

He completed his orthopaedic sports medicine fellowship at the University of Virginia with Drs. Mark Miller and David Diduch. He helped care for the athletes at both the University of Virginia and James Madison University. During his fellowship year, he won an NCAA championship ring as a team physician with JMU’s football team.

He has been active in research since he was in medical school. He won regional and national recognition for his outcome study with Dr. Tom Kling on instrumented fusions for patients with adolescent scoliosis. At Tulane, he won the outstanding chief resident research award for his project with Dr. Steve Cook examining the use of OP-1 / BMP-7 in bone healing. In fellowship, he was involved with several research projects on posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries and reconstructive techniques. He was on the team that won the Herodicus Award at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine meeting in 2006.

He was awarded the Intern of the Year Award for Charity Hospital in 2000. He was awarded the New Physician of the Year Award at Ochsner in 2005. He currently sits on the chairman search committee for the Ochsner Orthopaedic department.

Dr. Montgomery moved back to New Orleans in 2005, one month before Hurricane Katrina, to start his practice in sports medicine. He and his wife Melissa are thankful every day that they chose to stay in New Orleans and raise their daughter.

He specializes in shoulder and knee arthroscopy. He has a specific interest in arthroscopic shoulder (rotator cuff repair, labral repair and shoulder instability) and knee reconstruction. He specializes in anatomic ACL reconstruction which restores the native footprint of the anterior cruciate ligament, as well as complex, multi-ligament knee reconstruction. He also specializes in shoulder replacement surgery and open shoulder stabilization.

He is interested in all aspects of orthopaedic sports medicine. He recently authored a book chapter on the shoulder and sits on the Self-Assessment committee for the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, which writes review tests for young orthopaedic surgeons. He is actively involved in the orthopaedic sports medicine fellowship program at Ochsner.

August 2023

Dr Montgomery came in introduced himself and began with "how are you doing today"? Reply trying to stay cool with the heat that really was unbearable.He did ask how my shoulder was feeling and I replied that it does move, up and down no worries and even reached behind my back. It is a matter of pain in the area which I know what my limitations are. Doctor relayed the MRI that shows tears and lots of damage. I did ask this will not heal? Reply no so I asked what alternatives do I have and he replies thatA procedure to clean the area may help and it would be up to me to make this decision. At this time I thanked him and stated I did not want shoulder surgery at this moment but when the time came I would love to reach out to Doctor Montgomery. Thank you and may God Bless all the Doctors, nurses and hospital staff.

I was first seen by another doctor fo to discuss the history of my problem, etc. I then met with Dr. Montgomery. Both doctors were superb. They took plenty of time to ask a lot of questions and discuss my issue in depth. I did not feel rushed at any time, and all my questions were answered very thoroughly.
