What is a Foot and Ankle Surgeon?
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.
