Dr. Scott Katzman

Dr. Scott Katzman is an award-winning, internationally-recognized orthopedic surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery and cervical artificial disc replacement. Because he uses minimally invasive procedures, Dr. Katzman’s patients experience a faster recovery than other patients who have open back procedures. Also, Dr. Katzman uses regenerative medicine to target the area that needs regrowth, strengthen the area, and help it heal faster.

Dr. Katzman’s patients value his good bedside manner, and it is clear to them that he wants to provide the best care possible. He puts a lot of time and effort into each patient, from diagnosis to post-op care.

“I don’t treat patients; I treat people.” – Dr. Scott Katzman

Most doctors measure success as getting a person’s pain score below 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. Dr. Katzman’s goal is to eliminate the pain, meaning the pain score would be 0.

Dr. Katzman’s Areas of Expertise:

Dr. Katzman graduated from medical school at Jefferson Medical College in 1989, completed his residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Arizona in 1994, and then became a Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon. He currently practices in New Jersey, New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania.

Throughout his career, Dr. Katzman has taught other physicians about his highly-regarded techniques, and he has been a clinical instructor for companies such as Biomet, Johnson & Johnson, Othrocore, Kyphon and Clarus.
