Foot and Ankle Orthopedic Surgeon - Footcare Friday

What is a Foot and Ankle Orthopedic Surgeon.

For the best possible foot and ankle care, see a Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Surgeon.



Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Surgeons are the only foot care specialists who are trained as physicians (MDs and DOs). That means they’ve completed medical school, passed national boards for certification, and can address foot and ankle problems as part of your whole body health.


Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Surgeons are highly specialized. In addition to 4 years of medical school, they complete 5 years of residency training in orthopaedic surgery plus 1-2 years of advanced training in foot and ankle care.


Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Surgeons aren't just surgeons. They diagnose problems and treat the whole foot and ankle — for both surgical and non-surgical cases. No matter what kind of problem you're having, a Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Surgeon can deliver the care you need.


Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Surgeons are experts at complicated cases. With their extensive training and specialized knowledge, they provide the right treatment right from the start, keeping your pain and costs to a minimum.


You rely on your feet and ankles for so much — don't take chances when it comes to their care. Particularly if surgery is recommended, be sure to get a second opinion from a Foot and Ankle Orthopaedic Surgeon.
