Dr Greco


Dr. Greco has been providing his surgical services in the Southern California area over the past 7 years and has performed thousands of procedures with a much higher success rate and lower complication rate than any published data to date.  But don’t just take our word for it:


Our Maverick fell off a fairly large cliff out on Catalina island and broke both of his front legs. He had two very scary fractures, but Dr. Greco did an amazing job at putting our boy back together.  Two days after the surgery, Maverick is already trying to walk! Our family won’t go anywhere else with our pets. This team really does have a true passion for their work and animals.
