Why orthopedics?

Dr. Scott was drawn to the field of orthopedics because of the dramatic impact that surgery can have on a patient’s quality of life.

He chose to specialize in treating hands because of the variety of cases and conditions involved and the intense understanding of biology and physics required to appreciate hand function and its disease pathophysiology.

Dr. Scott specializes in treating traumatic injuries such as fractures, restoring ruptured tendons, and treating nerve and blood vessel injuries. He also takes great joy in treating very common problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, and thumb arthritis.
