Steven Grosso, M.D.
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 has been active in local medical leadership positions. He has served as an instructor in Advanced Trauma Life Support, and has served on state Trauma Committees. He has participated in several mission trips with Smile Network, repairing cleft lips and palates in Central and South America.

After completing his fellowship, he was board certified in cardiac and thoracic surgery.
In 1991 Dr. Muskett returned to Montana and practiced cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgery for the next 12 years. His surgical team was consistently ranked among the best in the country, winning numerous quality and outcome awards. In 2003, he sought a new challenge and entered a plastic surgery residency at the University of Mississippi. In this very busy program he received extensive experience in all areas of plastic surgery. There he continued his research interests, publishing several papers, and twice had presentations at the prestigious American Association of Plastic Surgery meeting. In 2005, he replaced the retiring Dr. Walter Peet in Billings, joining Dr. Steve Grosso at Billings Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Muskett has been active in the community, serving as president of the Yellowstone Valley Medical Society, president of Montana Associated Physicians, Chairman of Surgery at St. Vincent Healthcare, Chief of Staff at St Vincent Healthcare, and has served on the board of directors of the Billings Symphony Orchestra and the Billings Area Catholic Education Trust.
