Today’s Podiatrist: Operate Like a DPM

As a foot and ankle expert, Today’s Podiatrist is in a unique position to provide surgical intervention or conservative care to treat foot and ankle conditions. Simply put, no condition is too big or too small and no treatment is too complex for Today’s Podiatrist.


So, what does the phrase “Operate Like a DPM” mean to Today’s Podiatrist? It’s a way of practicing that puts the patient and his or her needs and individual concerns first. Today’s Podiatrist has the singular goal of getting patients back on their feet—and is the right physician and surgeon to accomplish that goal.
