Why BIDMC Podiatry?
BIDMC's full-time, board-certified foot surgeons collaborate with specialists in areas such as vascular surgery, orthopaedics, plastic and reconstructive surgery, infectious disease and diabetology, as well as with nurses, orthotic technicians, physical therapists and pain management specialists to provide patients with the combined resources needed to treat and manage their particular lower extremity conditions. These care providers work within the division's
four specialty care programs.
foot surgeons are nationally and internationally known for their expertise in diabetic foot care and reconstructive surgery.
They are regularly invited to speak at medical and surgical conferences, and have published extensively in peer-reviewed journals.
Several of our surgeons hold leadership positions in national organizations such as the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) and the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
In addition to our main practice setting at the medical center, the same level of exceptional care is available in community settings in Lexington, Needham, Stoughton and Waltham.
Multiple locations bring our services to the patient, eliminating their need to travel into Boston.
