Scott has a strong academic background. He undertook a postgraduate research degree examining the genetic contribution to joint replacement failure at the University of Sheffield in collaboration with the Sanger Institute in Cambridge and the Norwegian Arthroplasty Registry. He was awarded a PhD in 2017 for this work and has presented nationally and internationally. He has won several awards, including the prestigious Otto Aufranc Award in recognition of pre-eminent excellence in research, presented in the USA.
He has also been invited to speak internationally on orthopaedic prosthesis failure. He continues to be actively involved in research and is a scientific peer reviewer for Shoulder & Elbow, the official journal of the British Shoulder and Elbow Society.
Scott spent 18 months in Perth, Western Australia where he underwent subspecialty fellowship training in shoulder and elbow surgery with internationally renowned surgeons. This gave him the opportunity to be involved in complex cases including complex upper limb trauma. He had the opportunity to be trained in state of the art techniques in arthroscopic (keyhole) and open surgery and worked with world leaders in tendon healing.
Scott is actively involved in training orthopaedic surgeons and has recently been appointed as the Royal College of Surgeons specialty tutor for orthopaedics at Doncaster and Bassetlaw. In this role, he is the lead for all postgraduate training in the department.
