May 29, 2020

 

Robert Grob, DO, and his staff have joined St. Luke’s Orthopedic Care.

Formerly of Mahoning Valley Orthopedics, Dr. Grob is committed to serving patients in the Carbon and Schuylkill County regions and will see patients at St. Luke’s Orthopedic Care offices in Lehighton, Tamaqua and Palmerton.

“Our staff remains committed to providing the best care to our patients, and this new affiliation with St. Luke’s ensures we will be able to provide the highest quality orthopedic care for many years to come,” he says.

Dr. Grob earned his medical degree from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed an internship and a residency at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. During his training, he was able to work with numerous professional sports teams. He is a member of the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics as well as the Pennsylvania Orthopedic Society.

“I treat every patient as a member of my family. This occurs as a result of practicing in the same community for nearly 20 years. In my two decades of treating patients from Carbon County and its adjacent counties, I have seen an entire generation grow and be leaders of this community,” he says. “I am a board certified general orthopedic surgeon with specialty interest in conditions of the hip, knee and shoulder. I also treat patients with upper extremity, trauma and non-operative spine issues. My success in joint reconstruction has been awarded with a Blue Cross Center of Joint Distinction, the first in the region.”
