Your feet are the foundation for movement in your lower body. When you experience pain in your foot or ankle, the resulting discomfort can impede your life on a daily basis.  We can help.  Dr. Putnam performs a wide range of both surgical and non-surgical treatment options in an effort to help you regain an active lifestyle. If surgery is necessary, Dr. Putnam and his team will approach each case with minimally invasive techniques, such as arthroscopy, as well as traditional surgical techniques.

Why a fellowship trained foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeon?

An orthopaedic surgeon has completed four years of medical school and five years of graduate education in an accredited orthopaedic surgery residency program. A fellowship trained foot and ankle surgeon has completed an additional year of advanced training specifically in the care of the foot and ankle.


When it comes to seeking out care for your feet and ankles, it is important to see an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in this type of care. They have the knowledge to employ medical, physical and surgical methods to restore function lost as a result of injury or disease to the foot and ankle.
