I live in Williamson and on Aug. 20, 2008 I had a HR done by Dr. Gross. I just had my 1yr. checkup and everything was fine. My wife was a nurse for 32 years and she said that Dr. Gross was one of the most impressive doctors she had ever met. It is amazing that you do not realize how bad you are until after the surgery and how much better you feel. Do what the doctor says and you will be as good as new. I also want to thank Pat for this website because without it I probably would have had a THR because like many I would not have known about HR.

I just wanted to update my fellow hippies on my 3 year checkup with Dr. Gross. I was escorted into the office by Nancy who was smiling and upbeat as usual. My wife stayed at the hotel and Nancy asked about her. After the x-rays I answered the survey on the computer that Gross hippies know all about. Lee came in a few minutes later and examined my range of motion and told me if she did not know the operated hip she could not tell because they were the same. I met Dr. Gross and told him he looked different because he has grown a beard and we then discussed some things he wants me to do unrelated to my surgery. I was told I did not have to come back for 2 years because everything was fine.
I think I speak for all of Dr. Gross’s patients in that I feel I am part of a cult with Dr. Gross as our leader. He truly is a gifted doctor who enjoys giving people their lives back. I have mentioned before that my wife is a nurse and has met and worked with many doctors during her career. She said that when she went to my first appointment that he was different from any doctor she had ever had contact with. Being a nurse she asked questions that most of us layman would not know about and he answered every question without hesitation. Sitting in the exam room that day I told Lee and Dr. Gross to schedule me as quickly as possible as I felt I did not need to look any further. Here we are 3 years later and and I am thankful every day that I found Dr. Gross because of Pat and this site.
For all of those that came before me thank you for all your help. For those to come after you will not be disappointed. Enjoy the ride to a pain free hip.

This August will be 4 years since Dr. Gross did my surgery. For me it was the best decision I ever made. A few weeks ago I needed some clarification about a test I am scheduled for this week unrelated to my hip surgery. I contacted Lee Webb by e-mail and she responded quickly answering all my questions. I think this sets Dr. Gross apart from some others. They are never too busy to respond to concerns from their patients. You are very lucky to have him so close. I had to drive 6 hrs and would have driven further if need be.
