Minimally invasive surgery means smaller incisions, less postoperative pain, faster recovery, and a better cosmetic result. James R. McWilliam, MD, is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive foot and ankle surgery. He has pioneered minimally invasive surgery techniques in the foot and ankle, including bunion repair, Achilles tendon repair, arthritis surgery, cartilage repair, and fracture care. A lifelong educator and an in-demand speaker, Dr. McWilliam trains medical personnel in minimally invasive surgery on national and international stages. In addition to his private orthopaedic practice, Dr. McWilliam provides surgery for and attends a clinic for patients without insurance in Westchester. He regularly travels to Haiti where he performs life-changing surgery for patients who would otherwise not have access to care. In 2018, he was named a “Healthcare Hero” by Westchester Magazine for this service, as well as for his advancements in the care of disorders of the foot and ankle.
