OrthoCarolina is thrilled to welcome Dr. Brian Scannell to our OC family! Specializing in pediatric orthopedic surgery, Dr. Scannell, a Charlotte native, will see patients at OrthoCarolina's Pediatric Orthopedic Center. Continuing to learn and grow is a key value of OrthoCarolina employees and we know Dr. Scannell will offer an immediate impact with his passion for education and working with his fellow surgeons.


I wanted to become a doctor because...
There are many reasons but the biggest reason has to be the ability to make an impact in someone else's life. Patients come to us after injury/trauma, with pain/disability, etc and our role is to help them through this. We impact not only patients but those around them as well.

I am excited to join OrthoCarolina because...

We have an opportunity to do something very special here in Charlotte from a pediatric orthopedic standpoint. I truly believe that we can improve care for children in our region as a team at OC I have been working in this community for five years. Physicians at OrthoCarolina are already my colleagues.

Dr. Scannell

As a physician, I think I am unique because...

In addition to my patients, my passions lie in education. I have been involved and will continue to be involved in medical student training at Atrium Health and the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. I help to run our Orthopaedic Residency Program at Atrium Health - Carolinas Medical Center. Educating the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons is very important to me.

I am excited to join this community because...

I have been working in Charlotte for five years. Living and working where I was raised is very special. I have had an opportunity to care for kids of those I went to school with and grew up with. This is very special.

When I'm not at the office you're most likely to find me...

1. With my family - My wife is a local pediatrician and even harder working mother. I don't know how she balances her work schedule with managing our family but she simply does it. I have two amazing and beautiful daughters. They are always keeping us busy.

2. I enjoy exercising - it is my stress reliever, outlet from work, etc. It helps keep my mind refreshed.

Dr Scannell THANK YOU for your tender heart and care of our eldest son yesterday after he broke his arm. Your professionalism and gentle spirit were so encouraging and you put our son (and us) completely at ease going into surgery. Thank you for the years you and your wife put into your studies and for choosing to love on children who are hurting. We appreciate you! ~Halpins
