Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grooms "First of all, I believe in listening to the patient. Many times the patient will tell you what you need to discover the true cause of their distress in the first few minutes. Secondly, I believe that every opportunity should be given to manage orthopedic conditions without surgery if possible. If surgery is the best answer then it should be done as expertly as and as minimally invasive as possible. To that end, I never use staples to close wounds and always pursue a plastics quality closure."

DR. Grooms did a knee replacement on my right knee. it was late about 4 pm when i got to my room. the next morning i was walking a little. by the next morning i was doing so well i was released and went home. it has now been about two weeks. i have had no pain and am walking with out a cane, walker or help of any kind. i am 71 and live in the country. i can now walk to the mail box, take the dog for a walk and so on. there is only one person that made this possible, Dr Grooms.

Got ACL reconstruction on my left knee from Dr Grooms. Visited him first at his office and his assistant James was very helpful. Dr Grooms did an excellent job afterwards to help start towards a quick, healthy recovery. Highly recommend him for any problems with knees and ACL's. He took extra time after surgery to answer our questions. He's easy to work with and definitely knows what he is doing.
