Dr. Greenhow is double board-certified through both the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and the Canadian Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Dr. Greenhow’s specialty training in arthroscopy and minimally invasive techniques lead him to pursue extensive additional training in minimally invasive joint replacement of the hip and knee, in combination with computer navigation, robotic, and patient-specific technologies. He was one of the first two surgeons in Colorado to perform the minimally invasive, muscle-sparing (MIS) Anterior hip replacement procedure beginning in 2004. Dr. Greenhow is one of the designing surgeons for a femoral stem implant used in hip replacement surgery, a patient-specific knee replacement technique (Medacta MyKnee ®) using CT scan technology and 3D printing, and a total knee replacement system which allows for improved knee kinematics and improved stability (Medacta GMK Sphere ®), all of which are being implanted around the globe.

Dr. Greenhow is currently a consultant for an international orthopedic implant company based in Switzerland (Medacta, Inc.). He serves on the Educational Advisory Boards for Anterior Approach Hip Replacement and Kinematic Alignment for knee replacements and acts as an Instructor in the US and internationally. Dr. Greenhow serves as a proctor and instructor for national and international training centers with regularly scheduled lectures and cadaveric labs. Dr. Greenhow also proctors surgeons from across the globe in their own hospitals, helping to teach the Anterior Approach technique for hip replacement and Patient-Specific technology for total knee replacement. He utilizes cutting edge techniques including outpatient joint replacement, MIS, kinematic alignment and medial-stabilized knee replacements. He is an active member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) and the American Academy Orrthopedic Surgeons (AAOS). He sits on the board of 365 Surgical, Center At Lincoln and Lincoln Surgery Center.
