Pain Relief Without Pain Pills

About us

joseph f. greco, phd, pa/c

Our philosophy is quite simple, “treat all patients as you would like to be treated and achieve the best possible results for every patient”.
Our family is the only three generation family in the world doing hair transplantation. Greco Hair Surgery was established in 1960 by my father, Joseph F. Greco, MD, one of the early pioneers in hair transplantation. In 1983, I assisted and learned hair restoration from him and have been involved in hair restoration the past 27 years. My brother Jeffrey M. Greco, MD also was trained in hair restorations surgery and I am proud to say that my son, Joseph F. Greco III, MD is carrying on the family tradition fifty years later.

Jonathan Greco, MD

I used to joke with patients, “Don’t worry. We won’t run out of pills we can give you.”  We would both laugh and roll our eyes.  But in every joke there is an element of truth.  Grant it, most medications are necessary  and life saving but we have become too arrogant thinking we can treat everything with a pill.  If the human body is nothing short of miraculous, then why is it so hard to believe that the answers to many of our medical problems are already within our own body?
