SPENCER D. GREENDYKE, MD, MEDICAL DIRECTOR
Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon
“My father, Bill Greendyke, MD, was a radiologist who inspired me to choose this field. I enjoy it because it allows me to use my intellect and talent to solve puzzles and fix problems. Orthopedics also allows me to be myself – warm, personable, pleasant and relatable – with my patients.
“My philosophy is always to start with the simplest solution first and only move on to more complex solutions, such as surgery, when conservative measures do not produce sufficient results. I like to take the time to explain treatments and options fully, so patients understand their treatment before they receive care. In my experience, many trends and fads have come and gone. That’s why I prefer using techniques and equipment that have a longstanding, proven effectiveness.
“I hope to give my patients better quality of life as well as the feeling that they are being treated and helped by a friend.”
