Dr. Brett Greenky: Leadership in the Face of Adversity

Superhero team-ups make for something great, and are often the result of a big challenge too large for one leader to take on alone. While caped crusaders join forces to save fictionalized worlds, Dr. Brett Greenky teamed up with Dr. C. Perry Cooke to form the super team that is known today as Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists (SOS).  

In 1999, a meeting of the minds occurred between Dr. Brett Greenky and Dr. Cooke. The two doctors made a grand plan to rise to an even greater challenge. As regulatory burdens became too difficult to manage alone, Dr. Brett Greenky and Dr. Cooke knew the only way to survive was to join forces, merging three medical practices to increase their size and capabilities in navigating regulations.

“Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists was the brainchild of Dr. Cooke and I,” Dr. Brett Greenky said. “We met at Dr. Cooke’s house and constructed the concept of the company.”

​As the best and brightest orthopedic doctors and surgeons formed Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists, over time, the team and their capabilities grew. That same year that Dr. Brett Greenky co-founded SOS, nine other doctors joined the company. 

​The SOS team continued to grow. Today, SOS has 6 orthopedic locations, 4 physical therapy locations, the Specialists’ One-Day Surgery Center and over 600 team members committed to providing total orthopedic care. 

Dr. Brett Greenky has led this super team of top-rated doctors and surgeons, with 2020 marking his fourth year as President of Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists, serving as Vice President prior.

​With Dr. Brett Greenky as their fearless leader, SOS has established itself among the nation’s best orthopedic practices. SOS joint replacement patient satisfaction ratings and outcomes exceed benchmarks on several medical scoring methods. SOS has been recognized among the Best Companies to Work for by the Central New York Business Journal. All SOS health care providers have achieved a collective rating that’s a near-perfect 4.6 out of 5 stars from patients. Most importantly, SOS comes highly recommended by its satisfied patients.

“Dr. Brett Greenky gave me back a great quality of life,” said Cathy, a satisfied patient in her recommendation of SOS. “I am able to do all the things I love again thanks to him! The entire SOS team has been caring, attentive, and knowledgeable from the first appointment right through my 6-month checkup.”
