We are pleased to introduce R. Jeffery Grondel, MD, who is board certified in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.

Because of Dr. Grondel’s sports medicine fellowship, he is expertly trained to care for the needs of all community members and athletes.

He brings to Eastern Idaho many state-of-the-art procedures such as new and innovative shoulder and knee surgery techniques. Such procedures help patients continue their active lifestyles and preserve their native anatomy and function, promoting overall joint health. In addition to treating on-the-field injuries that keep athletes sidelined, he also treats the nagging injuries and pain many suffer from simply living life.
