Hip and Knee Reconstruction


Dr. Groover is fellowship-trained in adult hip and knee reconstruction. He obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of Wyoming, where he played defensive end for the football team. He completed medical school at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and orthopedic surgery residency at Grandview Medical Center in Dayton, OH. In 2018 he was awarded the Osteopathic Orthopedic Resident of the year by the American Osteopathic Foundation.

Dr. Groover is board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery and is affiliated with the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics, Montana Medical Association, American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons.


The focus of Dr. Groover’s practice is the treatment of hip and knee arthritis with minimally invasive, rapid recovery total hip replacement, partial (unicondylar) knee replacement, total knee replacement, and kinematically aligned total knee replacement. He is specialty trained in revision hip and knee replacement with a focus on the treatment of infection, implant failure, and complications from trauma and severe deformities.

His philosophy in the treatment of adult hip and knee conditions includes designing a treatment protocol that helps patients keep their own hips/knees functioning as well as possible. When performing joint replacements he offers a variety of techniques so he can tailor treatment to each patient.

This place is great, had a hip replacement, Dr. Groover is extremely knowledgeable and will keep you in constant update. His staff is super nice, especially Nurse Connie. She is the greatest of all nurses. My hip is doing good, he told me in the beginning that he could make me a new man. I'm a new man now, can walk, no pain, no crutches, everything is perfect. His assistants filled out all of my short-term disability to get it started as soon as we had a start date and an end date. This is the place to go, the doctor to see, and the nurse you want :)
