Our Founder: A Passionate Champion for Ultrasound

After graduating Dartmouth College with a degree in geology, Dr. Cliff Gronseth worked in Africa and Asia in the gemstone trade. Following a bout with malaria that almost killed him—and thankful for the Kenyan doctor who didn’t let that happen—he had the epiphany that medicine, not pretty rocks, was his calling.
He received his M.D. degree from the University of California San Francisco Medical School and completed his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Michigan.
After his residency, Dr. Gronseth moved to Colorado where he held a faculty position at the University of Colorado Medical School in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Medicine. During his time in academia, he founded the University Spine Center, a multi-specialty center focused on spine care, and served as Medical Director for the University of Colorado Department of Rehabilitation’s Outpatient Services and Medical Director of the University Physical Therapy practice in Boulder. While at the University of Colorado he also received multiple Outstanding Teaching Awards and helped to establish several rehabilitation clinics in various Colorado communities including Boulder, Aurora, and Steamboat Springs.

Dr. Gronseth is founder and currently managing partner of Spine West, a private practice in Boulder, CO, specializing in non-surgical musculoskeletal medicine and ultrasound. He is triple board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Electrodiagnostic Medicine, and Pain Medicine.

Dr. Gronseth is an accomplished physician, a decorated teacher, a student of how we learn and how to learn better.  He is a passionate champion for ultrasound. Since teaching himself ultrasound almost 20 years ago, he recognized its power for not only maternal health but everything from guiding needles to assessing injuries from acute trauma. He realized that the accelerated learning system made possible by the iPad-based NAV™ software suite could be used to rapidly improve healthcare in remote, rural, and resource limited areas. His goal is to promote ultrasound as a safe, portable, effective—and miraculous—tool to save lives in the forgotten corners of the world.
