About Anthony J. Scillia

Whether you are an athlete or not, some injuries require cutting-edge orthopedic and sports medicine treatments such as minimally invasive arthroscopic and robotic surgery to optimize outcomes. Dr. Anthony Scillia provides that and more at Academy Orthopedics. “We take care of not only athletes but also the whole family,” says the New Jersey native. “That can range from cartilage restoration in the youth athlete population to joint replacement in the weekend warrior.”

A board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon with a subspecialty in sports medicine, Dr. Scillia focuses on the arthroscopic and reconstructive treatment of shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee disorders. He and his colleagues at Academy Orthopedics, including Drs. John Callaghan, Anthony Festa, Casey Pierce, David Rodriguez, and Craig Wright, are team physicians for numerous local high schools, Seton Hall University, Montclair State University, and the New Jersey Jackals and Sussex County Miners professional baseball teams.

Academy Orthopedics has partnered with OrthoEast to provide patients with the most advanced treatments in all musculoskeletal disorders. Dr. Scillia and his fellow award winning orthopedic specialists in sports medicine, trauma, and reconstruction use a comprehensive approach and cutting-edge techniques, such as the latest biologics and robotics, to ensure that each patient receives the best possible surgical outcome. Dr. Scillia is the president of the New Jersey Orthopaedic Society and the Orthopedic Program director at Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center.
