James Scott, DO

Orthopaedic Joint Replacement Surgeon


James Scott, DO, is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon at Mercer-Bucks Orthopaedics, with offices in Hamilton, and Lawrenceville, New Jersey, and Langhorne, Pennsylvania.

Dr. Scott was born in Bergen County, New Jersey, and moved to Montgomery Township with his family. He met his future wife, Risa, with whom he now shares two daughters. 

Dr. Scott is a graduate of Montgomery High School and still has deep ties to Central New Jersey. An early interest in medicine and participation in track and cross country exposed him to orothopaedics 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 in Centre County, Pennsylvania. 

Dr. Scott eventually went on to study medicine at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Rowan SOM (Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine) in Stratford, New Jersey. He then completed a one-year fellowship in adult reconstructive orthopaedics at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia, and has published research and book chapters. 

After his fellowship, Dr. Scott continued his career in Cooperstown, New York, where he led the joint replacement program, specializing in complex hip and knee reconstruction and revisions. After seven years in Cooperstown, he is excited to return to Central New Jersey and serve the community he considers home.
