SCOTT A. MEYER, MD
Dr. Scott Meyer is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, specializing in sports medicine, knee, shoulder, and elbow joint arthroscopic and reconstructive surgeries, including joint replacement. He is from Council Bluffs, Iowa, and began his career at Iowa Ortho in 1992. Dr. Meyer aims to help his patients return to activity quickly and safely. He is the head orthopedic surgeon for Drake University and a team orthopedic surgeon for the Iowa Cubs. He has served in both of these roles for over 24 years. Dr. Meyer also provides assistant medical coverage to the Iowa Wild and on-field coverage for several local athletic teams and events. Notably, Dr. Meyer was one of the first orthopedic surgeons in Iowa to perform CARTICEL cartilage repair surgery. The procedure includes implanting the patient’s cartilage cells to repair knee joint surfaces. In addition to practicing at Iowa Ortho, he has written book chapters, published sports medicine-related research articles, presented his research at national medical meetings, and donated his expertise to the people of Tanzania during a medical mission trip. Growing up, science fascinated Dr. Meyer. The opportunity to help people motivated him to pursue medicine, and his interest in sports and sports injuries led him to orthopedics. He can be found on a golf course, running, or cheering on his favorite sports teams in his leisure time. He has been married to his wife Ruth for over 30 years and has four grown children.
