Dr. James Fox is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who provides general orthopedic care, particularly fracture care and knee arthroscopy. In addition, he practices orthopedic oncology, that is, treatment of bone issues related to both malignant (cancerous) and benign (non-cancerous) tumors. Dr. Fox also established and runs OrthoAccess, IBJI's immediate care clinics for orthopedic injuries that don’t require an emergency room visit. A lifelong member of the North Shore community, Dr. Fox was inspired to become a physician by an uncle who was an obstetrician/ gynecologist, who impressed him with his compassion and professionalism. He chose to specialize in orthopedics because it enables him to solve patients’ problems and return them to health.
