About Me

As an adult reconstruction orthopaedic surgeon, I specialize in treating conditions causing degradation of the hip and knee joints. I use a combination of various non-operative treatment methods to improve patients’ symptoms in addition to performing joint replacement surgery. My areas of interest include outpatient total joint replacement surgery, short hospital stays and rapid recovery. I perform both partial and full knee replacement surgery, and I perform hip replacement using conventional approaches as well as muscle-sparing techniques. I also specialize in examining patients with painful joint replacements performed in the past and treat problems related to infection or instability of prior joint replacements. I focus my knowledge towards developing treatment plans that are specific to each patient's diagnosis and needs. I devote undivided attention listening to patient issues and would be pleased to take care of you or your family members.

    My experiences with Dr. Greco have been great. But what is far more telling is the responses from OSU staff who support his team. Everyone from clinic check-in to the nurses on the surgical floor have great respect for him.
