He was very thorough and put my elbow back together which is what I was looking for most.

Dr. Gruen and the medical staff provided excellent services. They were attentive and responsive to my needs and questions. Some of the previous survey questions were not applicable and were left unanswered.

This was my last follow-up visit with Dr. Gruen related to my tibial fracture repair surgery on August 31, 2015. I had a very bad fracture and Dr. Gruen did an outstanding job of repairing the break. He was also perfectly appropriate in putting me in a non-bearing leg brace for 8 weeks before allowing the start of physical therapy. The break has healed near-perfectly and he and his residents have been attentive to my understanding of what was happening and what I could expect going further. Dr. Gruen is the man with the "magic hands" and I cannot say enough positive about what he has done for me. He recommended the PT person with whom I should work at UPMC Sports Center and she has been wonderful in assisting in my recovery. I am a 71 year old woman who was very active prior to the fall that broke my leg. Both Dr. Gruen and my therapist have encouraged me to seek to return to my previously active state and I believe them when they say that, with time and work, I will be able to do everything I did prior to my injury. I am well on my way!! For this, I am more grateful to Dr. Gruen than I can put into words!

Dr. Gary Gruen is by far the best orthopedic surgeon I could have ever asked for. He did a phenomenal job at reconstructing the bones in my right leg after a horrific car accident that left them shattered. Although I had compartmental syndrome and many other complications along the way he did such an amazing job. I have residual pain in my refurbished leg but that pales in comparison to the way I would have suffered without my leg at all. Dr. Gary Gruen is an amazing orthopedic surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone in the world who needs fixed up. He saved me from becoming an amputee and I will be thankful for the rest of my life. I was truly blessed to have been in his care.

Dr. Gruen was professional and friendly and allowed me to participate in my health care decisions
