Dr. Scott J. Ellis performs a variety of surgical procedures of the foot and ankle, including foot and ankle fusion, total ankle replacement, along with bunion and adult flatfoot reconstruction. He also surgically treats foot and ankle fractures and their long term sequelae. Dr. Ellis has an interest in treating sports injuries of the foot and ankle (including osteochondral injuries, Achilles ruptures, and ankle instability), employing ankle arthroscopy and minimally invasive techniques when possible.

His clinical and research interests are focused on ankle and foot arthritis and the adult acquired flatfoot for which he has presented at various national meetings. In addition, Dr. Ellis has a deep interest in using plantar pressure technology to advance the success of foot and ankle reconstruction.

Dr. Ellis began his academic study at Davidson College in North Carolina, where he attained numerous academic honors. He later began his medical training at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He then completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery. After residency, Dr. Ellis remained at HSS as a fellow in foot and ankle surgery. Following his fellowship, he traveled to Duke University (with Dr. James DeOrio); Lyon, France (with Dr. Michel Bonnin); and Basel, Switzerland (with Dr. Beat Hintermann) in order to expand his knowledge in foot and ankle surgery; total ankle replacement was of particular interest.
