Who’s Who in Health Care
Our first-ever list of some of the most influential names—and unsung heroes—in local medicine

Dr. Scott D. Schoifet
Reconstructive Orthopedics/Director, Virtua Joint Replacement Institute
Pioneering quad-sparing total knee and partial knee replacements, Schoifet’s team approach to total joint surgery has developed into one of the largest and most successful joint replacement programs in the tri-state area. As one of the leading proponents of outpatient total knee replacement in the United States, Schoifet serves as medical director of the Joint Replacement Institute at Virtua, is a surgeon with Reconstructive Orthopedics, and currently teaches and trains orthopedic surgeons throughout the country and abroad.
Reason to stay on this side of the bridge: The large number of graduates from great institutions in Philadelphia, New York City, and Baltimore that have settled in South Jersey.
