Podiatric Surgery Experts

Podiatric surgery medical expert witnesses are highly specialized medical personnel who are qualified to provide expert testimony in legal matters involving the diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle problems. These experts typically have extensive experience in podiatry and related disciplines, including orthopedics, neurology, biomechanics, oncology, radiology, pathology and physical therapy. They can offer insight into the diagnosis and management of a wide range of conditions such as bunions, hammertoes, neuromas and heel spurs. Moreover they can explain complex diagnostic imaging results such as X-rays or MRIs to attorneys and juries alike.


Podiatric surgeons are typically board certified by both the American Board of Podiatric Surgery (ABPS) or its subspecialty boards such as Foot Surgery or Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery (RRA). In addition to being knowledgeable about clinical practice guidelines they must also understand the legal process surrounding malpractice claims or other litigation issues pertaining to podiatry care in order to effectively serve as an expert witness.


In addition to providing testimony on cases involving malpractice claims against podiatrists these experts may also be called upon for personal injury cases where a plaintiff suffered an injury due to a defective product used by a podiatrist such as an orthotic device or prosthetic limb. Furthermore they may be asked about standards of care when evaluating whether negligence occurred during surgeries performed by other doctors on feet or ankles that were initially diagnosed by a podiatrist. Expert witnesses from this field bring their unique expertise into courtrooms offering invaluable knowledge concerning not only diagnoses but potential treatments for foot-related injuries that result from trauma falls slips trips etcetera.
