Dr. Steven Grosso was born in Illinois and grew up in Portland, Oregon. Involved in athletic, musical, and academic activities at Jesuit High School, he finished as the school's valedictorian. He then discovered Montana, where he attended Carroll College in Helena as an honors scholar. He received an Armed Forces Health Professions scholarship after finishing first in his senior class and graduating summa cum laude from Carroll with a degree in Biology.
Medical school was next for Dr. Grosso, and he attended Creighton University, where he developed an interest in surgery and ultimately received his MD degree. He then received an appointment as a surgery resident at the prestigious Vanderbilt University Department of Surgery. Over the next five years he honed his skills as a general and trauma surgeon, while becoming interested in plastic surgery.
After finishing his general surgery training and achieving board certification, he began his military service. Over the next four years, he served as a general and trauma surgeon in the Army, primarily stationed in Europe. There he served as the Chief of Surgery and Chief of General Surgery in field surgical hospitals in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, and Germany at a time when the Balkans were in fierce combat. He received numerous commendations for his surgical skill, leadership ability in crisis, and even marksmanship.
After a distinguished military career, he was honorably discharged in 2000, where he was accepted in another top institution-the Division of Plastic Surgery at the University of Alabama. There he worked with some of the legendary figures in plastic surgery to develop skills in all phases of plastic surgery-from pediatric reconstructive surgery to adult cosmetic procedures.
In 2002 he returned to Montana to join Dr. Walt Peet at Billings Plastic Surgery. Dr. Alan Muskett joined the practice in 2005 on Dr. Peet's retirement. Dr. Grosso quickly developed a large and busy practice due to his command of the entire range of plastic surgery.
Dr. Grosso's service in the community has been as broad, from coaching youth basketball to leading Boy Scouts to serving on the Breast Health Task Force. He has served as an instructor in Advanced Trauma Life Support, and has served on state Trauma Committees.
Steve and his wife, Dr. Lorinda Grosso, are parents of Matthew and Megan. They are members of the St. Pius X Catholic Parish in Billings.
