Our physicians are experts... and great people too! Meet
Robert Grunfeld, MD, the Campbell County Health April 2018 Provider of the Month.
Growing up in his native Germany and later while living in Canada, Dr.
Robert Grunfeld dreamed of one day moving to the wide-open spaces of the
American West. Dr. Grunfeld’s grandfather was an ophthalmologist
and inspired him to enter medicine. Dr. Grunfeld attended medical school at
Penn State University and completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at
Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Penn. He completed a Fellowship in Foot and Ankle at the
University of Rochester in Rochester, NY. Dr. Grunfeld joined the CCH medical staff in 2015 and
Powder River Orthopedics and Spine, a Campbell County Medical Group Clinic.
Dr. Grunfeld believes that ‘walking is life,’ and studying
with five outstanding foot and ankle specialists put him on the path to
specializing in foot and ankle surgery. He chose orthopedics because of
the potential to change people’s lives and literally get them back
on their feet.
He says that the people of Campbell County, Wyoming, are the nicest, hardest
working he’s ever been around and he admires the work ethic he’s
experienced since he came to Gillette. In fact, he’s had to change
the way he does surgical implants because his patients would begin walking
sooner than he wanted them to in order to get back to work. Now he uses
stronger anchors for his ankle stabilization procedures.
Dr. Grunfeld and his wife Beth Stephens have two children under age 2,
and they love living on their ranch just outside of Gillette. When he’s
not working, Dr. Grunfeld enjoys hiking, skiing and snowshoeing. He just
started hunting and snowmobiling this year, and they both enjoy riding ATVs.
Thank you Dr. Grunfeld, for providing our patients with excellent care.
