About The Ankle and Foot Medical Center

Welcome to The Ankle and Foot Medical Center of the Delaware Valley at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, an innovative podiatric practice committed to the idea that people should walk without pain.

The Ankle and Foot Medical Center team treats an eclectic array of patients, from professional ballet dancers to middle school athletes to older adults experiencing problems with aging feet.

The nationally recognized specialists at The Ankle and Foot Medical Center offer a full range of services and treat a variety of podiatric conditions, from general ankle and foot medical care to the comprehensive treatment and reconstructive surgery of complex deformities in children and adults.

The Ankle and Foot Medical Center team consists of podiatric experts who are trained in the latest advances and treatments for the ankle and foot. Our podiatrists (doctors of podiatric medicine) are board-certified in podiatric surgery and considered leaders in their field. They frequently lecture at international podiatric conferences and regularly contribute to the world's foremost podiatric medicine textbooks and journals.

In addition to caring for patients, The Ankle and Foot Medical Center team initiates and participates in numerous national research projects that place them on the forefront of podiatric innovations. The team also trains University of Pennsylvania podiatric residents in the most advanced medical and surgical treatments currently available.

As a tertiary care facility, The Ankle and Foot Medical Center team serves as a regional referral center for physicians around the Delaware Valley and also treats ankle and foot patients at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center's Emergency Department.

In addition, the members of The Ankle and Foot Medical Center team have a personal interest in dance, running, and other sports activities that uniquely affect the ankle and foot, so they understand first-hand the importance of personalized, state-of-the-art podiatric care.

As a member of the University of Pennsylvania Health System, The Ankle and Foot Medical Center interacts closely with the orthopaedic specialists at Penn Orthopaedic Institute at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, as well as other departments within the hospital, including the vascular surgery and neurology teams.

The Ankle and Foot Medical Center of the Delaware Valley is situated on Penn Presbyterian Medical Center's campus, which is located in Philadelphia's historic University City area. There are additional Center locations throughout the Delaware Valley.
