Local orthopedic surgeon honored as national leader in field

From the press release:

Local orthopaedic surgeon Gordon I. Groh, M.D., a board-certified specialist in shoulder, elbow, and hand surgery at Blue Ridge Bone & Joint, has been advanced from associate to active membership in the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons, recognizing him as a national leader in the field.

Membership in ASES, an educational body of select leading national and international orthopaedic surgeons who specialize in surgery of the shoulder and elbow, is by invitation only. Dr. Groh is one of only four orthopaedic surgeons in the nation to hold memberships in both the ASES as well as in the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH), the oldest medical specialty society in the U.S. devoted entirely to continuing medical education related to hand surgery.

In 2011 Dr. Groh was named one of the 65 Outstanding Shoulder Surgeons and Specialists in the country by Becker’s Orthopedic, Spine & Pain Management Review. Only five other shoulder surgeons across the Southeast were honored with this recognition, selected based on their expertise in shoulder surgery, positions of leadership in professional organizations and institutions, research and development in the field, and their reputation among other physician leaders.

Prior to joining Blue Ridge Bone & Joint 17 years ago, Dr. Groh served as a full-time faculty member and director of shoulder and elbow surgery at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver. He continues to actively pursue research and teaching opportunities, and has presented in every major city in the U.S., as well as in Mexico, Canada and Japan.
