Colleton Medical Center is excited to announce that board-certified general surgeon Dr. James Scott, DO joined Coastal Carolina Surgical Specialists to provide expert surgical care on Monday, March 6, 2023.

During medical school at Des Moines University in Iowa, Dr. Scott gained exposure to a variety of medical specialties that fueled his passion for surgery. He completed his surgical residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and settled in Omaha, NE, where he practiced as a general surgeon in the University of Nebraska system for 20 years.

As a general surgeon, Dr. Scott performs a variety of procedures, including the removal of the gallbladder, appendix, tumors of the intestine, and hernia repairs, along with screening and diagnostic endoscopic procedures, as well as laparoscopic minimally invasive surgical techniques.

“The opportunities to help my patients through some of the most difficult and intimidating moments of having surgery is the most rewarding,” says Dr. Scott. “I look forward to joining the dedicated team at Colleton Medical Center and working alongside renowned Dr. Karl Stiegler to deliver quality, detailed care for our patients.”

When not working, Dr. Scott enjoys time with his family pursuing various outdoor activities, including golfing, bicycling, and archery. He will provide care with Coastal Carolina Surgical Specialists at 120 Medical Park Drive in Walterboro, SC 29488.
