Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Pediatric Orthopaedic care should be a team approach including the doctor, therapists, orthotists, nurses and other medical people working together with the child and his or her family. Some goals may be met next week or next year but often we are looking ahead to a child being the best they can be in terms of function and pain when they are an adult. Dr. Scott is proud to follow her patients through school and childhood to see what they can acheive as they become adults. The people at Shriners Hospital are uniquely suited to providing a team to support each child through their growing years.Read more

    Clubfoot and Congenital Vertical Talus

    Dr. Scott and her partners specialize in clubfoot treament from infancy to adolescence.  We have been using the Ponseti method for over 20 years and are also experienced in the complex clubfoot such as those associated with skeletal dysplasias or revisions for feet that have had previous treament elswhere.  We also have significant experience in current methods of treating vertical talus.

     

    Ambulatory child with Cerebral Palsy

    The motion analysis laboratory at Houston Shriners Hospital is one of the oldest gait labs in the country.  Over 50 cerebral palsy surgeries are done each year and a gait lab is done before and after every surgery.  Outcomes of the cerebral palsy surgeries have been measured and recorded for the last 20 years so that the doctors can constantly improve what they are doing.
