  • Martin A. Gruber, MD (R), appointed Chief, Division of Pediatric Orthopaedics at Winthrop, is welcomed to his new position by Roger Dee, MD (L) Chairman of Winthrop's Department of Orthopaedics, and Charles Ruotolo, MD, (C) Chief Resident in Orthopaedics at Winthrop. Dr. Gruber will maintain a close affiliation with Winthrop's Department of Pediatrics, providing specialized orthopaedic care to patients from birth through the age of 18.

    Wid you know that congenital orthopaedic anomalies occur in approximately three percent of all live births? At Winthrop, newborn infants with hip dislocations, club feet, scoliosis, spina bifida, congenital amputations (missing limbs), curvature of the spine, cerebral palsy, and other neuromuscular diseases and problems receive immediate, expert clinical attention, enhanced through the recent addition of a distinguished specialist, Martin A. Gruber, MD, the Hospital's new Chief, Division of Pediatric Orthopaedics.

    Here, Dr. Gruber (R) examines a newborn in the Winthrop Nursery, with Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics (L). Dr. Gruber helps to train Winthrop's Pediatric and Orthopaedic Residents.
    Orthopaedic diagnosis and care rendered in the first hours of life can help to alleviate the longterm effects of congenital anomalies, and possibly prevent potential disabilities.

    "We are fortunate to have Dr. Gruber at Winthrop, where he is also closely affiliated with the Hospital's large, flourishing Department of Pediatrics," says Roger Dee, MD, Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedics at Winthrop.

    Infants, babies, and children with congenital and acquired anomalies and deformities, including Perthe's Disease (in which blood supply to the child's hips is greatly diminished, potentially causing permanent disability) are treated by Dr. Gruber, who also cooperates closely with Elizabeth Coryllos, MD, Chief of Pediatric Surgery.

    Active in professional organizations throughout his career, Dr. Gruber has been president, director, and chairman of numerous professional committees relating to Orthopaedics, Pediatrics, and Sports Medicine; has published widely in professional journals; and has been a guest lecturer in a variety of medical settings. Most recently, Dr. Gruber served as Chief, Division of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery, at University Hospital, SUNY Stony Brook, and as Professor of Clinical Orthopaedics and Pediatrics, a position he will retain through the clinical affiliation between Winthrop and SUNY Stony Brook.
