OrthoLive is the world's first orthopaedic telehealth provider.
Dr. Michael Greiwe
“Telemedicine is the best thing that has happened to orthopaedic patients since the advent of joint replacement. The convenience and efficiency for patients to see a provider face-to-face over their phone, or at their work or home computer is phenomenal. The impact in terms of quality of life, patient satisfaction and health care economics will make telemedicine mainstream in a matter of a few years. At OrthoLive, we are leading the way in Orthopaedic telemedicine.”
Dr. Greiwe is committed to providing orthopaedic care in the most efficient, accurate and effective way possible. Dr. Greiwe attended the University of Notre Dame, where he won the prestigious Knute Rockne Award for excellence in academics and athletics. In 2010, Dr. Greiwe completed a fellowship in shoulder, elbow and sports medicine at Columbia University.
Dr. Greiwe was named a “Top Doctor” by Cincinnati Magazine in 2014, 2015, 2016, and again in 2017. He was also selected as a Finalist for the Cincinnati Business Courier’s “2014 Health Care Heroes” Innovator Award for his work in research and advanced surgical techniques. He won the Legacy Leadership Award for Health Care in 2014. Dr. Greiwe also serves as the Editor of the shoulder and elbow textbook, Shoulder & Elbow Trauma and its Complications, published by Elsevier in 2015.

BOARD MEMBER, PARTNER and ADVISOR
“Telemedicine has not taken off because it is expensive and complex. Over the last few years, I have visited Iraq twice, and taken more than two dozen trips to Africa and Mideast, I have seen countless examples where telemedicine could make a huge impact on people’s lives. Toward making telemedicine any everyday experience across the world, I am grateful to have a band of VSee brothers and sisters from whom I learn everyday; their energy and dedication fuels me to be more optimistic about the future every morning.”
Milton did his PhD at Stanford University on the human factors and design of video collaboration; Milton was also the co-author of XMPP video standard (XMPP is used by Google Talk and Facebook Chat). Milton has deployed telehealth for Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Mandy Moore, the band Linkin Park and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. Milton has also worked in refugee camps from Syria to South East Asia to Africa.

Mary Beth McNeil
“Contributing towards OrthoLive’s launch into telehealth has been so satisfying – I know that my efforts help people like myself connect with the very best (board certified) providers in a responsive, caring and cost-efficient environment. The physicians, themselves, will be the first to tell you that OrthoLive doesn’t replace traditional healthcare; but rather, it enhances care and makes it far more affordable for both the provider and the patient. Working with OrthoLive has given me an opportunity to envision healthcare as it ought to be.”
Mary Beth McNeil, Secretary and researcher for OrthoLive, currently lives in Tampa, FL. Mary Beth is passionate about learning – ‘even outside of her comfort zones’ and about making a difference through relationships, not merely through business roles. Recently, Mary Beth added the study of Health Information Management to her resume. She is a mother, wife and grandmother of four, an entrepreneur with businesses in different realms – Accounting, Topiary and Travel. “I think I’ve done well in these areas because I am detail oriented, and because I tune in to what people need and hope to accomplish. Connecting with people and being challenged to think outside of the box is risky but certainly a lot more fun.”
McNeil’s clients, other than OrthoLive, include “The White House”, Busch Gardens, the movie, Edward Scissorshand, SeaWorld.
“What OrthoLive is doing to medicine is what Henry Ford did to cars – both bet that the users of the old will be converts to a new and much more efficient method that is available to everyone. I firmly believe that OrthoLive will succeed in its mission of providing an excellent product at low costs to all – from the rural farmer to the C-suite.”
