Dr. Groh repaired my torn rotator cuff. I am about 7 months post surgery and my results have been great. Range of motion is good and strength is building every day. I will definitely use him if I need another procedure.

Dr. Groh corrected my carpal tunnel and trigger fingers on each wrist and hand during one surgery. I didn’t have any problems and actually didn’t experience any pain during a couple weeks of recovery. Dr. Groh did a great job at fixing several problems at once, I am well pleased with the results.

I fell on black ice in the winter of 2018, an incident that completely destroyed my right rotator cuff. The first surgeon wanted to do a complete reverse shoulder replacement within 48 hours. When I saw Dr. Groh the following day, he said I had a 70% chance of avoiding surgery with physical therapy. He was absolutely correct. I am virtually 100% back to normal, but must continue the therapy exercises for life (I'm now 77). I remember well his final words at my checkup after PT: "If you go out that door and turn left, you'll see the exit. You're entirely too healthy to be hanging around a place like this." His willingness to suggest PT before surgery was reassuring. As they say in the oenology world -- Highly Recommended

I had my rotator cuff re-attached by Dr Groh and at 60 years old my arm works better than it had in decades with less pain. My husband has had 2 hand surgeries with Dr Groh, he is a brilliant & gifted surgeon.

He took care of my thumb arthritis & hypertension. After 3 months it’s almost back to normal! Also, he will speak with you as one human to another—unlike some who think they’re gods.

Had rotator cuff surgery by Dr. Groh to repair a full tear. I could not be happier with the outcome. I followed his instructions to the letter and had a seamless recovery. Very highly recommend.

I had a reverse shoulder replacement and everything went very well. I have very little pain and the exercises Dr. Groh gave me for rehab were exactly what I needed and my shoulder healed beautifully, I didn't have to pay for rehab which was great. I would recommend him to anyone who needs shoulder surgery.

Dr. Groh has been amazing. He took the time to really listen and, for the first time in over a year, I felt truly cared for. He was warm and friendly, as was his entire staff at Asheville Orthopaedic and the Orthopaedic Surgery Center of Asheville. I’m 8 days out from surgery and already feel no radiating arm pain that has been making daily tasks so difficult. Dr. Groh and his PA, Eric Walker, went above and beyond to minimize scarring and I am very grateful. I highly recommend Dr. Gordon Groh.

Dr. Groh performed an instability surgery on my right shoulder and I am more than happy with the results. My shoulder no longer hurts, I can return to work full force. He definitely knows what he's doing and what he's talking about. He listened to my worries and answered all my questions. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor!

Great experience with Dr Groh and his staff. Very assuring, professional, and to the point. Went the extra mile to get me setup with another Dr for a different problem I have. Unheard of by most. Billing department awesome. I have zero complaints from this man who also served our country proudly. He did procedures on my aunt and mom with same results.

I am 75 and recently had shoulder replacement surgery with Dr. Groh. I was very pleased with his professional competence and his warm, personable manner. After my surgery, I expected I would need physical therapy. Dr. Groh informed me that the research has shown if a patient followed through on the prescribed exercise regimen at home, it would not be necessary to spend the time and money going to PT. He was absolutely right! I have recovered well following his advice with no need for PT.

I had a broken bone in my right arm that had been broken by cancer 24 years ago. At the time of my treatment for cancer, a rod was put into my arm to stabilize it while it healed, but it never did. Eventually, the pins holding the rod in place broke and I was in excruciating pain. Dr. Groh did a bone graft on the arm, fixed a rotator cuff tear, and after 24 years of non-union, my right arm is finally healed and I can use it normally again! Dr. Groh is wonderful, and I'll be grateful forever.

I had a shoulder replacement in Feb 2018. EVERYTHING he told me to expect was spot on--even when he told me the recovery would not be near as painful or take as long as rotator cuff surgery. He was right! I found him to be compassionate and caring. Great "bedside manner." I was very pleased with the wait time in his office (or lack thereof). Loved his staff, especially Eric, his PA. The whole group is very professional yet personal, from the receptionists to the nurses. Highly recommend him.
