Dr. Scott Stephens is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in shoulder and elbow surgery, and sports medicine. He performs all aspects of shoulder surgery from minimally invasive arthroscopy to complex shoulder replacements. Areas of special interest include shoulder arthritis, rotator cuff, distal humerus fractures, and biceps tendon ruptures/ tendinitis.
Dr. Stephens received his medical degree from University of Toledo School of Medicine and completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Mount Carmel Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. Following residency, he completed dual fellowship sub-specialty training. His first fellowship was in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy in Miami, Florida at Doctor’s Hospital where he assisted in the care and treatment of the 2013 NBA Champion Miami Heat. He then completed a Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship at the University of Texas at San Antonio under the guidance of world-renowned shoulder and elbow surgeons Drs. Rockwood, Morrey, and Wirth. While there, he learned the latest techniques in shoulder and elbow arthroscopy and reconstruction.
“I believe that the best patient care comes from taking the time to get to know patients in order to individualize treatment and allow patients to return to activities that they enjoy,” said Dr. Stephens. “I utilize the most current operative and non-operative treatment techniques in order to customize the best plan of care.”
