Tim Greene, MD is an orthopedic surgeon who is fellowship trained in sports medicine and hip arthroscopy, a technique that has revolutionized the treatment of various hip problems. Dr. Greene graduated Princeton University and earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Georgia. He practiced his residency in orthopedics at Emory University and served as associate team physician to the athletic teams at Georgia Tech.
Dr. Greene’s interest in sports medicine derives from his ongoing personal interest in sports. While at Princeton University, he was team captain in varsity football and earned numerous awards for outstanding athletic achievement.
I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Greene. I am a professional tennis player and had a literal and figurative pain in the butt when I played. Other symptoms included recurrent groin “pulls” and glute strains and deep achy pain across my low back. No one could properly diagnose the underlying cause until I saw Dr. Greene, who diagnosed me with labral tears and impingement (FAI) in both hips. My symptoms did not perfectly align with those typical of FAI, but he believed this to be the cause and we decided it was best to operate given my urgency to get back to the tour. He basically did a rim trim, osteoplasty and labral repair on both sides (6 weeks apart). This decision had me so anxious, and now I sit here 3.5 months after my second hip surgery, Indian-style… sorry, it’s 2020… “cross-legged” with no pain whatsoever! I am back to playing tennis and weight training – already doing things I previously could not. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to use Dr. Greene over other prominent surgeons in NYC and CT. He is by far the most trustworthy, communicative, personable (and probably most skilled) of the four surgeons I saw… he also has a great sense of humor, despite being a Falcons fan.
