Liz Scott


I am an orthopedic surgeon with training in Hip Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine. My research interests include the biomechanics of hip dysplasia and impingement, as well as the influence of psychosocial distress and resilience on treatment success and outcomes in hip preservation. My background in artistic sports and martial arts as well as personal experience as a hip preservation patient inspires me to look for ways we can continue to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation for athletes with non-arthritic hip conditions.


After completing Orthopedic Sports Medicine fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital I will be starting practice at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina in Fall 2022.
