Stephen T. Greenfield, MD

Meet Dr. Stephen Greenfield

Dr. Stephen Greenfield graduated from Duke University in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering. In 2010, he received his medical degree from Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

Dr. Greenfield completed his orthopedic surgery residency in 2015 at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, which US News and World Report ranks the #1 hospital for orthopedics since 2009. An interest in biomechanics and joint preservation lead him to pursue dual fellowship training. He remained at the Hospital for Special Surgery to study limb lengthening and limb deformity correction. He studied realignment techniques for the knee and ankle joints to postpone joint replacement or fusion surgery. He also learned modern techniques for limb lengthening, including the use of internal magnetic lengthening nails. He then completed his foot and ankle surgery fellowship at OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, where he was exposed to a wide scope of foot and ankle surgical procedures from care for the professional athlete to total ankle replacement.

Dr. Greenfield is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society, and the Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society.
