Greg DiFelice is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon with over 20 years of experience specializing in Sports Traumatology and Joint Reconstruction Surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery and New York Presbyterian Hospital.
He also holds an academic appointment at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University as an Assistant Professor. His main surgical focus is on treatment of the knee, shoulder and hip. His main research focus is on primary repair of the ligaments of the knee. He has developed several cutting edge surgical techniques that allow him to save and repair a patient’s torn ligaments, rather than reconstructing them that is the current standard of care. Currently, for 50-75% of his ACL injured patients, he is able to save most, if not all of the patients’ native tissue thereby diminishing the need for grafts.
Greg was born and raised in northern New Jersey. He completed his undergraduate degree at Princeton University while earning three Varsity letters playing football. He then continued on to New Jersey Medical School, where he graduated as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. He did his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. He then completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis in 2000. While there, he worked as an assistant to the team physicians for the St. Louis Rams, the St. Louis Blues and the St. Louis Cardinals.
