Are you interested in a podiatry fellowship?

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
935 Chambers Boulevard, Suite D, 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.

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.

Dr. Klutts is a member of Pi Delta Podiatric Honor Society. He completed a 3 year surgical residency at the University of Louisville/Jewish Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky. While in residency, Dr. Klutts served as Chief Resident as well as the Young Member Liaison for the state of Kentucky for the American Podiatric Medical Association.

In his spare time, Dr. Klutts enjoys working out, reading, beekeeping, motorcycling, and hiking.
