Orthopedic & Sports Specialists of Louisville, P.S.C. was started December 1, 2007 by Dr. Andrew DeGruccio. As an established orthopedic surgeon serving the Louisville metropolitan area for over ten years, Dr. DeGruccio decided to branch out from his previous relationship with Orthopaedic Associates, P.S.C. As a member of Orthopaedic Associates, Dr. DeGruccio honed his skills in arthroscopy, joint replacement, and elective general orthopedics. Availability to outpatient orthopedic patients, combined with an honest and confident opinion have been the hallmarks of his practice. Patients leave his office with a full understanding of their problem and treatment choices, including their risks and benefits. A particularly steady hand has allowed many a patient to leave his office with a renewed confidence and appreciation for orthopedic injections. Dr. DeGruccio was the first surgeon in Louisville to utilize the removable cast for stable fractures, especially appreciated by pediatric patients.
