Scott Yang, M.D.

  • Assistant Professor of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, School of Medicine


Dr. Yang specializes in caring for infants, children, and adolescents with a wide variety of orthopaedic conditions. He truly loves what he does and this motivates him to strive for the best care possible for his patients.

He takes care of all pediatric orthopaedic conditions.  He has a special interest in the pediatric spine including scoliosis (early onset, adolescent, neuromuscular, congenital), kyphosis, and spinal deformity, hip conditions (dysplasia, perthes disease, SCFE), neuromuscular conditions, injuries and fractures, limb deformities and sports injuries. 

In his spare time, Dr. Yang enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and two dogs who hold the keys to his heart. He enjoys participating in triathlons (and finishing last in the swim portion) and spending time outdoors with family.
