Monmouth Medical Center plastic surgeon tapped for leadership role with noted national society

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the largest organization of board-certified plastic surgeons in the world, named Monmouth Medical Center plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Greco as its new president-elect. He will begin his one-year term as president on Nov. 1, 2022.

Greco, a resident of Sea Bright, served as the board vice president for health policy and advocacy for ASPS for three years prior to his election.

Representing more than 7,000 physician members, the ASPS comprises more than 94% of all board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States. Founded in 1931, the society represents physicians certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

“I am incredibly honored to be selected as president-elect of an organization recognized as a leading authority and information source on cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery,” Greco said. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a focus on the safe return to elective surgery, but the ASPS has always been dedicated to educating the public on the importance of researching plastic surgery procedures and choosing board-certified plastic surgeons for the safest outcomes.”

Greco has served as chief of the Monmouth Medical Center Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for nearly 12 years and is the MMC general surgery program director as well as the assistant program director for the general surgery program at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Monmouth Medical Center’s teaching affiliate. He also serves on the Monmouth Medical Center Foundation board of trustees.

A dual board-certified plastic surgeon, he is a diplomate of the both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He specializes in full-body cosmetic surgery and breast reconstruction.
