PATIENT CARE: The Division of Foot & Ankle cares for patients across the spectrum of foot and ankle conditions, including fractures, dislocations, overuse syndromes, degenerative conditions, sports-related disorders, dance medicine, and diabetic foot disorders.  Through patient care, efforts to evaluate clinical care delivery through a validated patient-reported outcomes platform combined with cost analysis for the value of the care delivered across the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center system throughout Pennsylvania.
Academic and research activity from the division of Foot & Ankle through University of Pittsburgh’s McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine, Musculoskeletal Growth and Regeneration Laboratory and the Foot and Ankle Injury Research [F.A.I.R.] Group.
There are many collaborative projects with laboratories across various departments and throughout the University of Pittsburgh
The goal of the fellowship program is to train and educate the fellow in the evaluation, care and management of injuries and diseases of the foot & ankle, and to teach surgical skills necessary to provide high quality care. This includes the evaluation of congenital deformities, trauma, tumors, sports medicine, degenerative disorders and infection.  The fellow will gain adequate operative experience and expertise in the above-mentioned areas, and academic knowledge that will support their clinical expertise and allow them to pass all board examinations.
These goals will be achieved by the fellows’ participation in the weekly didactic conferences and course attendance in areas related to foot and ankle surgery. These include anatomy, congenital deformities, trauma and its reconstruction (bone, joint, soft tissue, and tendon), rehabilitation, arthritis, tumors, contractures, injections, arthroplasty, and basic science.  The Foot and Ankle Fellowship offers variety of cases, state-of-the-art surgical facilities and research opportunities.
