Dr Luis C. Grau is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in the non-operative and operative treatment of orthopaedic conditions of the Hip and Knee. Dr Grau serves in the capacity of Medical Director and Chief of Adult Joint Reconstruction and has been voted as a Top Doctor and Rising Star in the New York metropolitan area by Castle Connolly. He is also the Director of Robotic Joint Replacement at Hudson Regional Hospital. Dr Grau’s clinical interests include minimally invasive surgical techniques which help promote a more rapid recovery. He has advanced training in arthroscopy, direct anterior hip replacement, quad-sparing partial and total knee replacement and is an expert in robotic arm assisted and computer navigated partial and total joint replacement.  

 

Dr Grau was born in Havana, Cuba and grew up in Miami, Florida. He followed in his fathers footsteps who is also an Orthopaedic Surgeon and studied pre-medicine at the University of Miami where he was accepted on academic scholarship and as a member of the Honors College. He went on to graduate with high honors and was inducted into the Golden Key Honor Society. Dr Grau then moved to Chicago to complete his medical school where he was recruited and awarded an academic scholarship by the Hispanic Center of Excellence. In medical school, he was voted president of his class and graduated as a member of the prestigious AOA medical honor society awarded to the top students in each class.

Following medical school, Dr Grau was selected to complete his residency at the University of Miami Department of Orthopaedics, one of the busiest and most well recognized residency programs in the country. While in residency he had extensive training in level I orthopaedic trauma, total joint replacement, arthroscopy, sports medicine and participated in the orthopaedic care of the Miami Marlins and University of Miami Athletics. 

 

Dr Grau was then selected to complete an additional joint replacement fellowship at the Rothman Institute where he performed over 1000 joint replacements with leaders in the field. While in fellowship he obtained advanced training in muscle sparing techniques for hip and knee replacement, robotic surgery, outpatient joint replacement and complex revision surgery.

 

Dr Grau believes in advancing the field of joint reconstruction and has authored numerous scientific articles in peer reviewed journals, presented his research about both national and international meetings and serves on the editorial board of The American Journal of Orthopaedics.

Dr Grau’s practice philosophy is to always start simple and to treat his patients like he would his own family.
