Dr. Michael Gruber is a board certified orthopedic surgeon with subspecialty certification in sports medicine and sub-specialty interest in joint replacement. He treats patients of all ages and backgrounds with musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.
Dr. Gruber attended Presbyterian College, where he played on the soccer team and was recognized as an academic all-American, graduating with honors. He married his high school sweetheart, Sharon, and moved to Augusta, Georgia where he attended the Medical College of Georgia, again graduating with honors. He completed his orthopedic residency at Wake Forest University Medical Center, an institution known for its excellent joint replacement and sports medicine program. Dr. Gruber holds a Certificate of Additional Qualification (CAQ) in orthopedic sports medicine, which is the highest level of accreditation in sports medicine. While at Wake Forest, he served as a sports medicine physician for the university athletes, and he enjoys providing that same level of care and philosophy of accelerated rehabilitation to our local residents.
He particularly enjoys helping his patients “get back in the game”, whether it’s on the athletic field or in an activity that they desire. When joint replacement is the appropriate course of action, Dr. Gruber can offer an accelerated return to recovery with the direct anterior (DA) approach to hip replacement. This allows his patients to experience an easier and faster recovery and, for some patients, can be done in the Georgia Bone and Joint Ambulatory Surgery Center as an outpatient procedure.
When Dr. Gruber is not taking care of his patients he is probably fishing or riding his bike or enjoying time with his wife. He and Sharon have enjoyed being part of the local community for 25 years. They have 3 grown children and enjoy traveling and spending time with their family.
