The division of podiatry which is organized within the department of surgery, provides a full range of podiatric services, including the most innovative surgical procedures for disorders of the foot and ankle.
The podiatry division is well known for its 3-year residency program in podiatric medicine and surgery, which is accredited by the Council of Podiatric Medical Education, and directed by Dr. Laurence Santi, and which regularly attracts a full complement of residents from across the country.
Members of the division of podiatry are an integral part of the hospital’s wound care program, along with the wound care nurses, participating in regular wound care rounds and providing advanced measures, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, for distal lower extremity wounds.
The podiatrists, most of whom are board-certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, work in close collaboration with all other members of the Medical Staff, including the vascular surgeons, and provide podiatric consultation, and emergency care of injuries and infections of the foot and ankle on a 24/7 basis.
