Trevor Scott, MD
“I chose to specialize in total joint replacement and revision replacements because I find it very gratifying to perform procedures that so reliably get patients out of pain and back to doing the things they enjoy.”
Specialties and Areas of Focus
- Fracture Care
- Hip and Knee Arthoplasty
- Robotic Total Joint Arthroplasty
Dr. Trevor Scott specializes in adult reconstruction of the hip and knee and general orthopaedics. His area of special focus includes treatment of hip and knee arthritis including complex deformity hip and knee reconstruction, revision arthroplasty; computer navigated joint reconstruction and partial knee replacement. He also focuses on pediatric orthopaedics, fracture care and knee arthroscopy.
Dr. Scott is a Fellow of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. He also serves as the Director of the Total Joint Program at Overlake Hospital. He derives great personal and professional satisfaction from helping patients regain their mobility.
He did his undergraduate work at Williams College in Williamstown, MA and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Biology. While at Williams Dr. Scott was a 4-year varsity letter winner in men’s lacrosse and was selected to the Academic All NESCAC team as a senior. He then completed his medical degree at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City and went on to an Orthopaedic Surgery residency at UCLA. Following residency Dr. Scott completed a fellowship in Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City; one of the most highly regarded fellowship programs in the world. There he learned the most up to date techniques in both operative and non-operative treatment of hip and knee deformity and arthritis.
In addition to playing collegiate lacrosse Dr. Scott also competed in one season of collegiate cross-country.
