Dr. Ross Hairgrove

Treat the Human, Not the Injury or Illness

Austin Regional Clinic welcomes Ross E. Hairgrove, MD, Orthopedic Sports & Musculoskeletal Medicine specialist, to ARC Kyle Plum Creek and ARC Southwest.

Dr. Hairgrove was born and raised in the small west Texas town of Haskell. He says, “I chose a career in medicine because it provided an avenue to fulfill two life passions, to serve humanity and study the physiological processes of the body.” Dr. Hairgrove adds, “I chose the specialty of Sports Medicine because I am passionate about treating injuries, and also educating patients on injury prevention and the importance of healthy active lifestyles.”

His philosophy to practicing medicine is to approach each patient as he would a family member, with compassion and understanding. Dr. Hairgrove says, “I feel it is important to be mindful of the fact that I am treating a human being, and not exclusively an injury or disease process.”

In his free time, Dr. Hairgrove enjoys spending quality time with his wife and friends, and his new golden doodle puppy! He expands on that by adding, “I also enjoy playing golf, running, camping, and reading.”

Dr. Hairgrove’s best exercise advice is, “While I endorse active living, it is important to advance through programs in a progressive and structured manner, and allow for adequate recovery after workouts to help decrease the likelihood of overuse musculoskeletal injuries.”

Dr. Hairgrove specializes in Sports Medicine and the non-surgical treatment of sports injuries, concussions, and issues of the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, wrist, hand, and ankle, as well as general orthopedic issues, for both adults and children.
