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
