Why choose a foot and ankle surgeon?

Foot and ankle surgeons are the leading experts in foot and ankle care today. As doctors of podiatric medicine – also known as podiatrists, DPMs or occasionally “foot and ankle doctors” – they are the board-certified surgical specialists of the podiatric profession. Foot and ankle surgeons have more education and training specific to the foot and ankle than any other healthcare provider.

Foot and ankle surgeons treat all conditions affecting the foot and ankle, from the simple to the complex, in patients of all ages. Their intensive education and training qualify foot and ankle surgeons to perform a wide range of surgeries, for the full spectrum of foot and ankle problems, disorders and injuries.
Foot and ankle surgeons who have achieved certification by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ABFAS) are eligible to become Fellows of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS), a specialty medical society that serves to educate patients and consumers about foot health and the conditions that foot and ankle surgeons treat. Use the physician search tool located at the upper right side of this page to locate an ACFAS foot and ankle surgeon near you.
