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

My approach to treating patients:
My philosophy for patient care involves a conservative and preventative approach. Our practice provides a dedicated practitioner who uses latest medical techniques to ensure the best individualized care. An initial office visit will address specific complaints, and use diagnostic, radiological, and gait analysis tests for examination. Preventive care is a big part of practice especially for diabetic population. Most of the problems I see can be treated with conservative treatment, such as physical therapy, foot orthoses, and modification of activity. I also perform foot and ankle surgery when needed. Treatment is individualized based on diagnosis, and personal situation.
