What is a Foot and Ankle Surgeon?

Foot and ankle surgeons are the surgical specialists of the podiatric profession. Following their undergraduate education, American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) members graduate from accredited U.S. podiatric medical schools and complete surgical residency programs of up to four years. Fellows of the College are certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, the board for foot and ankle surgery recognized by the Joint Committee on the Recognition of Specialty Boards. Many have additional fellowship training in various aspects of foot and ankle surgery.

Foot and ankle surgeons provide comprehensive medical and surgical care for a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions including common to complex disorders and injuries that affect people of all ages.

ACFAS members are uniquely qualified to detect the early stages of diseases that exhibit warning signs in the lower extremities, such as diabetes, arthritis and cardiovascular disease, and manage foot conditions which may pose an ongoing threat to a patient's overall health.
