Scott V. Haig M.D specializes in Adult Reconstructive surgery; this includes joint replacements of the shoulder, knee and hip, arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and knee, hand and foot surgery as well as many Sportsmedicine procedures. He has had residence, fellowship and post-certification training in minimally invasive surgery of the shoulder, hip and knee. Dr. Haig is also an exceptionally humane and patient-focused physician who has maintained a large nonoperative practice throughout his career; many patients told they needed surgery elsewhere have been treated successfully by Dr. Haig with injections, therapy, or in many cases, simple exercise.

Although he has been actively involved in many areas of orthopedic research, he is first and always a clinician. Patients who book an appointment in Dr. Haig's office see Dr. Haig, himself. Dr. Haig performs his surgeries himself, one at a time, and follows up afterward himself, for as long as it takes to get better.

See What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr. Haig is a true professional at what he does. He is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and take a personal interest in his patients. He is proactive and above all extremely honest. We visited 2 other orthopedic specialists who both said my father needed a knee replacement. Within our 1st visit with Dr. Haig, he took xrays and reviewed them with us and explained that a knee replacement was not necessary and that his approach would involve a 30 minute orthoscopic procedure that would get my father walking again the very next day without the use of a walker or cane. Dr. Haig made good on his promise and we could not be happier with the results. Thank you Dr. Scott Haig!

So this is the guy that other docs, including orthopedists, go to see when they have a shoulder issue needing surgery. His demeanor is always positive and he makes the time needed to make you feel in control of the process. His office is busy. He takes patients other docs do not (e.g., medicare) which you may not like but I see as giving back to the community. In some ways it is a throwback to old fashioned medicine; he's a one-man operation with a very willing and able support staff. I had shoulder surgery (rotator cuff) five-plus years ago and quickly (less than one year) returned to all my activities better than pre-op. I recommend Dr. Haig to my friends and family.

As a former marathoner, ultramarathoner and triathlete I can say Dr. Haig is the best Orthopedic Surgeon I've had the pleasure to have operate on me. Doctor Haig totally replaced my left knee on January 18, 2018. I began walking the day of surgery, was back to work two weeks after surgery, began stationary biking March 2018 and took my first jog July of 2018. Since my initial recovery, I've biked over 2,700 miles and run, YES RUN, 850 total miles including a marathon July 2019. With added strength training, swimming and a proper diet I've had no issues, I'm still going strong and am preparing for the Yonkers Marathon on October 20. I honestly can't wait to get my right knee replaced when the time comes so i can run totally pain free. Thank you Dr. Haig.
