Consider our ACFAS Recognized Fellowship program in the Louisville, Kentucky area!
Our goal is to provide the fellow with a well-rounded understanding of surgery of the foot and ankle. We provide a mixture of forefoot, mid-foot, pediatric, rearfoot and ankle surgery. Charcot, diabetic limb salvage, and trauma surgery is also taught! With twelve surgeons on staff, our fellows are exposed to a wide variety of foot and ankle surgery techniques. We strive to improve the fellow in all aspects of podiatric care including clinical, surgical, and inpatient so the fellow can improve their peri- and post-operative management of patients. Practice management, including managing your own clinic, is also a focus of this program.
We accept two fellows per year, and there is travel expected between six office locations. The locations that our fellows frequent are:
2818 Grant Line Road, New Albany, Indiana
4612 Outer Loop, Louisville, Kentucky
4420 Dixie Highway, Suite 130, Louisville, Kentucky
4644 Chamberlain Lane, Louisville, Kentucky
900 Chambers Blvd, Bardstown, Kentucky
3045 Ring Road, Elizabethtown, Kentucky
Most of our surgical procedures are performed at Physician's Medical Center in New Albany, Indiana. We take call at Baptist Health Floyd in New Albany, Indiana, as well as Baptist Health Hardin in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

Dr. Humrick was raised in Fresno, California. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Clinical Physiology with minors in Biology and Chemistry from Central Washington University. In college, he was a student government associate, involved in several community outreach programs, and was president of a student empowerment club. He went on to complete medical school at Western University of Health Sciences where he served as class president and, more importantly, met his future wife, Sarah.
Dr. Humrick completed residency at North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, Colorado. He received extensive training in lower extremity trauma, reconstruction, wound care, limb salvage, bunion correction, sports medicine, and total ankle replacements. During his final year of residency, Dr. Humrick served as chief resident and presented scientific posters at the nationally recognized ACFAS conference. One particularly memorable experience was a mission trip to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. This trip focused almost exclusively on pediatric deformity correction and was incredibly humbling and rewarding. Dr Humrick believes all patients are unique with specific needs and ailments which he intends to discover and treat to the best of his abilities. He is excited to join the KYINFAS team as a fellow for the 2023-24 year.
While not in the office, Dr. Humrick enjoys following various sports and taking in the outdoors. He is a self-proclaimed semi-professional voice impressionist and an ultimate pillow hog. He has two fur children in his dog, Cash, and cat, Tiny, and is a devout follower of The Office. His favorite pastime is making new memories with his incredible wife and son.
