Proudly Fellowship-Trained and Certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery


What Does Fellowship-Trained Mean?

Fellowship training is unique, focused training in addition to typical residency requirements. Becoming an orthopaedic surgeon is a long journey. The entire process takes 13 years: 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 5 years of residency. Those who are accepted to a subspecialty fellowship program perform an additional year of specialty training in a specific field of orthopaedic surgery to hone their skills. There are fellowships in all areas of orthopaedics: sports medicine, hand, foot and ankle, total joints, etc. Each doctor at OSC is required to achieve this highest level of specialization.

Our Doctors Are Certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery

Every ten years, Drs. David and Amaryllis Scott renew their certification with ABOS. As stated on the organization’s website, “ABOS exists to serve the best interest of the public and the medical profession by establishing educational standards for orthopaedic residents and by evaluating the initial and continuing qualifications and competence of orthopaedic surgeons. To improve the quality of care and outcomes for patients, the ABOS establish[es] and maintain[s] high standards for competence and lifelong education of board certified orthopaedic surgeons.”


Patients of certified orthopaedists can see that the goal in testing and certifying these doctors is to safeguard patients’ care and improve outcomes. At OSC, our surgeons’ levels of education and care meet the standards of an unbiased organization with the patient’s welfare at heart. We believe that the patient-physician relationship is a key component in successful treatment. Trust is one of the most essential elements of that relationship, and maintaining our certifications allows our patients to receive our care with full trust in our qualifications and expertise
