We seek residents who desire comprehensive training involving all aspects of care for the foot. The podiatry department provides hospital-based training that gives extensive experience in hospital management of the podiatric patient as well as ambulatory training.
NYHQ has a team approach to the diabetic foot, employing the endocrinologist, internist, vascular surgeon, podiatric surgeon and plastic surgeon in the treatment of complex problems to allow for salvage of limbs that otherwise would need to be amputated.
In addition to diabetic foot care, our podiatrists provide surgical services by employing state-of-the-art arthroscopic, endoscopic and open techniques for the treatment of foot deformities and injuries, utilizing the latest in internal and external fixation.
