Dr. Brett Greenky Develops Reputation as Highly Recommended Joint Replacement Surgeon

“I would recommend Dr. Greenky to everyone that needs a hip or knee replacement. Dr. Greenky gave me a much better life after being in pain for six years.”

That’s what Catherine, a satisfied patient of Dr. Brett Greenky, had to say about the joint replacement surgeon. Catherine is one of many satisfied patients who have proudly recommended Dr. Brett Greenky. But Dr. Brett Greenky’s work says a lot more than five stars on review sites; Dr. Greenky changes people’s lives for the better.

As a co-founder of Operation Walk New York, Dr. Brett Greenky has led the way in making joint replacement surgeries accessible for people in Ghana and other countries where these surgeries would otherwise not be possible for so many patients. In 2019, Dr. Greenky and a team of medical professionals made a medical mission trip to Ghana. They completed joint replacement surgeries on 49 patients in just two days. 

Beyond providing life-changing procedures abroad, Dr. Brett Greenky has played a critical role at Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists at a time when the organization has changed the lives of thousands of people. During his time as president of Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists (SOS), the organization has established their own joint registry that provides extensive data on patient outcomes for joint replacement surgeries. 97% of surveyed patients experienced improved pain symptoms at 6 months after hip surgery, according to an SOS joint registry summary.

“While our patient outcomes exceed national benchmarks…there is no better validation than having a patient share a before and after surgery story with us,” Dr. Brett Greenky said. “To hear that a patient debilitated by pain…is then pain-free and mobile, playing and creating memories…after surgery…is the outcome for which we strive.”

​For Dr. Brett Greenky, it’s not about topping Best Doctors lists or other accolades – it’s about helping people feel whole again.
