Dr. James Scott Is a Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon. He was born in Bergen County NJ and moved with his family to Montgomery Township, where he spent his formative years, and also met his future wife, Risa, with whom he shares 2 beautiful girls. Dr. Scott is a graduate of Montgomery High school (class of ’99) and still has deep ties to Central NJ. An early interest in medicine and participation in track and cross country exposed him to Orthopedics and helped lay the foundation for his future career. He went on to study Kinesiology with an interest in movement science at Penn State University.

Dr. Scott eventually went on to study medicine at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency in Orthopedic Surgery at UMDNJ-SOM in Stratford, NJ. He then completed a one-year fellowship in Adult Reconstructive Orthopedics at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA, and has published research and book chapters. After his Fellowship, Dr. Scott continued his career in Cooperstown, NY, where he led the joint replacement program, specializing in complex hip and knee reconstruction and revisions. After 7 years in Cooperstown, he is excited to return to Central NJ and serve the community he considers home.
