The Montefiore Approach

The Division of Podiatric Surgery and Medicine at Montefiore is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the region. With a team of nationally recognized podiatric surgeons, our knowledge and expertise ensures the highest quality of care for even the most complicated cases.

Our board-certified surgeons are dedicated to the diagnosis and management of foot-related disorders. Using innovative treatments and cutting-edge surgical solutions, our podiatrists provide specialized care for a wide array of conditions relating to the feet, from common ailments to complex deformities.

As an academic medical center, we are committed to the treatment and study of conditions impacting the foot. We are constantly striving to develop novel and cutting-edge techniques for the advancement of care within our own health system and beyond.


The experience of our patients and their loved ones—not simply their ailments—demands our full attention. Your dedicated care team will be there to discuss your condition, answer questions, assess treatment options and develop a treatment strategy that is best for you.

Though widely common, disorders of the foot can be the cause of discomfort and disability, interfering with normal ambulatory function, the activities of daily living, and even employment. At Montefiore, we believe that optimal outcomes are achieved through thorough evaluation, accurate diagnosis and a carefully considered patient-specific treatment strategy. Our goal is to provide our patients with innovative treatments, cutting-edge surgical solutions and high-quality care in an empathetic and caring environment.

Our status as an academic medical center puts us at the forefront of our field. Together with our Albert Einstein College of Medicine, one of the highest NIH-funded institutions in the country, we are continually conducting research with the goal of discovering better treatment options for our patients. We routinely present our research findings and publish our study results in peer-reviewed publications.
