From the Hendersonville Times-News

Orthopedic surgeon Dr, Gordon I. Groh was a lead speaker at the recent annual meeting of the Japanese Society for Fracture Repair in Fukuoka, Japan.

Some 2,000 Japanese orthopedists attended Dr. Groh's presentation on new treatments for shoulder fractures. Dr. Groh is a board-certified specialist in shoulder, elbow and hand surgery and practices at Blue Ridge Bone & Joint.

The meeting in Japan was Dr. Groh's first speaking engagement in that country. Prior to joining Blue Ridge Bone & Joint in 1995, he was a full-time faculty member and director of shoulder and elbow surgery at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver.
