Dr. James McWilliam
Foot & Ankle Specialist

Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon, Fellowship Trained in Foot and Ankle Surgery

James R. McWilliam, M.D., is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in foot and ankle surgery. His treatment philosophy stresses conservative management and, if non-operative treatment fails, he applies an evidence-based approach to surgical correction and repair. An emphasis on minimally invasive techniques, when applicable, frequently returns his patients to an active lifestyle faster than traditional, open techniques.

As the foremost foot and ankle surgeon in Westchester County, Dr. McWilliam has pioneered cutting-edge techniques in foot and ankle surgery including arthroscopic cartilage and ligament repair, percutaneous Achilles tendon repair, and minimally invasive bunion surgery. As such, he is an in-demand speaker on a national and international level. A lifelong educator, Dr. McWilliam continues to train medical personnel in orthopaedic surgery, from medical students to experienced surgeons.

Dr. McWilliam provides surgery for and attends a clinic for patients without insurance in Westchester County. He regularly travels to Haiti to perform life changing surgery for patients there who would otherwise not have access to care. In 2018, he was named a “Westchester Magazine Healthcare Hero” for this service, as well as for his advancements in the care of disorders of the foot and ankle.
