Dr. Stacie L. Grossfeld - Orthopaedic Specialists

Orthopaedic Surgeon Louisville Dr. Stacie Grossfeld MD
Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Stacie L. Grossfeld is a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Medicine. She served her internship and residency at the University of Minnesota. In addition, Dr. Grossfeld completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine at the Fowler- Kennedy Sports Medicine Center. Dr. Grossfeld works as an orthopaedic surgeon at Orthopaedic Specialists in Louisville, Kentucky.  She is a Board Certified orthopaedic surgeon by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS).

She first got interested in orthopedics because of her love of competitive sports. Growing up in northern Wisconsin she was a cross country ski racer and a competitive cyclist. While in high school she ran cross country and track, competing at the state level. Her love for fitness and sports continues today.

In addition to her practice as an orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Grossfeld is also an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Louisville in the Department of Family Medicine and the Department of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. She is a member of Baptist Sports Medicine and enjoys serving as the Team Doctor for South Oldham High School. In addition, she was recently named Team Doctor for Assumption High School in Louisville, KY.

In an effort to encourage more college students to choose careers in medicine, Louisville orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Grossfeld actively participates in several different programs including the University of Louisville's Guaranteed Entrance to Medical School (GEMS) program. U of L students participating in the GEMS program create a special portfolio based on required competencies from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Dr. Grossfeld offers participating students the opportunity to learn more about becoming an orthopaedic surgeon.

Partnering with Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, Dr. Grossfeld offers pre med internship opportunities to Centre College students at her Louisville orthopedic medical practice. Participating students have the opportunity to learn about many of the skills involved in a career as an orthopaedic surgeon. Find out more about Pre Med Internships with Dr. Grossfeld.

Dr. Grossfeld is also committed to serving as a mentor to encourage other female medical students to consider a career as an orthopaedic surgeon, through the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery (AAOS).

Dr. Grossfeld's special interests as an orthopaedic surgeon includes knee and shoulder reconstruction, shoulder injuries, and sports medicine. She has also been performing Independent Medical Examinations (IMEs) for 12 years.

In her free time when not working as an orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Grossfeld enjoys playing sports. Tennis has become her primary competitive sport. She competes at a 4.5 USTA level primarily playing singles. She states she is trying to learn to play doubles but has some control issues typical of a surgeon. "I want to hit the ball every time it crosses the net!"

In addition to tennis Dr. Grossfeld rides her bike and lifts weights for fitness almost daily. Talking about her love of sports, Dr. Grossfeld states: "I believe being a competitive athlete makes me a more effective sports medicine doctor. I can relate to my athletic patients on a more personal level whether they are involved in youth sports to my 80 plus year old athletes. It's just so important to be mobile and pain free. I try to help my all patients achieve this goal."

Her other major love outside of orthopedics and sports is her family. Her son is a second grader who enjoys Legos, playing the piano, and hitting tennis balls with Mom. Her husband has his masters in mechanical engineering and is an avid cyclist.

What People Are Saying

I am a classical ballet dancer with the Louisville Ballet. I appreciate Dr. Grossfeld as an orthopaedic because she makes best efforts to understand the mastery and consequence of dancing eight hours a day. Dr. Grossfeld has comprehensive resources for treatment and understands the importance of rehabilitation. But most importantly, she makes sure I can do what I love...Dance.

My name is Dylan Grandon. I am 21 years old, a full time student, and a starting catcher for the Georgetown College baseball team. Dr. Grossfeld has done two surgeries on me and they have both gone smoothly and I could not have asked for better results. When I was 16 she performed my first arthroscopic knee surgery. My recovery time took only six days before I played a full on 100% basketball game. Read more...

I have been a patient of Dr. Grossfeld's since 1997. She has always been very professional, as has her office staff. It's nice to come into the office and have the staff recognize you instead of being treated like "just another patient". Dr. Grossfeld has always approached my treatment carefully and cautiously, including consulting with other doctors outside of her practice and even presenting me at a conference to best plan out my course of treatment.
