In addition to general podiatric medicine and surgery, he is an expert in wound care, ankle joint arthroscopy, diabetic limb preservation and deformity correction. Another highlight of the doctor’s abilities includes surgical correction of foot and ankle deformities such as flatfoot, Charcot foot, cavus or high-arched foot, and clubfoot.

He completed his residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chicago and the North Chicago Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He served as chief resident during his time at both facilities.

I have a bad foot that I need corrected so I can walk without limping. You have been recommended by a contact of mine at the hospital. How do I make an appointment?
