Gregory C. Farino, M.D.
Dr. Farino is Fellowship Trained and Board Certified in Orthopedic Surgery with a specialty in hand and wrist reconstruction, offering the latest in surgical developments and techniques.
A native of Pennsylvania, Dr. Farino received his undergraduate degree in Biology achieving Magna cum Laude honors at DeSales University and his medical degree at Temple University Medical School. At Temple, he was recognized as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.

He then served as an orthopedic surgeon on the Gulf Coast of Florida prior to joining South Indianapolis Orthopedics.
Dr. Farino has clinical interests in, but not limited to, tendon injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, trigger finger, Dupuytren’s Contracture, Epicondylitis, and arthritis. Dr. Farino advocates personalized care saying, “I’ve always treated patients as family members. I talk with them about their challenges, offer them the best possible solutions, and together, we come to a consensus as to the best treatment for their situation”. Like all surgeons at SOA, Dr. Farino strongly believes in staying involved in all aspects of patient care, from initial diagnosis to post-operative rehabilitation. “I think the decisions that are made or not made in the postoperative period are as important as the decision to perform surgery and the actual operation itself,” said Dr. Farino.
Dr. Farino has treated the orthopedic needs of sports teams and athletes, including the Pittsburgh Pirates during training season and minor league players during regular season. He also worked with the Under-18 U.S. soccer team as well as student athletes at IMG/Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
Dr. Farino is pleased to return to beautiful, sunny Florida to join Sarasota Orthopedic Associates where our commitment is to get our patients back on their feet, back to work, back in the game, and back to life.
