Elliot Greenberg, MD

Urogynecology and Gynecology. In private practice since 1988.

Appointments available in Springfield

Dr. Greenberg is one of the leaders in Western Massachusetts in advanced laparoscopic gynecologic surgery and da Vinci robotic surgery. During his residency training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, he developed an interest in Laparoscopic surgery and female incontinence, and since joining our practice in 1991, he has continued to develop his surgical expertise in these areas. Dr. Greenberg was one of the area's first surgeons performing laparascopic supracervical hysterctomies (in the early 1990s) and is the first and only  physicians to perform single port laparoscopic gynecologic procedures.  He also has the distinction of the first gynecologist to earn certification for da Vinci robotic assisted surgery in Western Massachusetts. All of these minimally invasive procedures - such as hysterectomies and bladder support surgery - use small incisions, allowing for a much faster recovery, less pain, and less trauma than was ever possible in the past.

“There are rapid advances in women’s health, and I am committed to staying up to date via my participation in conferences, medical education, and surgical skill training with some of the best minimally invasive surgeons in the world.”  Dr. Greenberg teaches advanced surgical skills and proctors other gynecologic surgeons both locally and around the nation, and at the same time continues to pursue excellence in his own skills. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor in Ob/Gyn for Tufts University School of Medicine, and is actively involved in several specialty organizations related to minimally invasive surgery, pelvic disorders and female incontinence.   

"I love surgery and I love to be the best I can be at something. Expertise in minimally invasive surgery, like expertise in music, sports, and other fields, requires constant training, focus, and practice."

As much as Dr. Greenberg loved delivering babies, he has gotten just as much joy from helping women return to a more normal quality of life, especially when they have been frustrated with their past care and lack of results. “The keys to success are to have a great team that includes you, the patient, and to keep learning at every possible opportunity so that we can educate you about all your options.”

Because of Dr. Greenberg’s expertise in treating chronic gynecological problems, it is not uncommon for other practitioners to refer patients to Dr. Greenberg for disorders such as incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, endometriosis, and fibroids. Patients themselves often seek Dr. Greenberg’s help on their own, sometimes traveling long distances for their appointments.

When not practicing medicine, Dr. Greenberg enjoys spending time with his family and friends as an active member of Special Olympics.  His love of high-performance equipment carries over to his bicycles.  He is an avid cyclist, and has participated in the PanMass Challenge for over 20 years, riding the 200 mile, 2-day event to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Center. To date he has raised over $85,000 for cancer research.
