Dr. Diana Emini and Dr. Michelle Kim are podiatric physicians and surgeons who specialize in the surgical and nonsurgical treatment of conditions that affect the feet and ankle.
They both hold the advance degree as Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPM). Podiatric medicine deals with the skin, nails, bones, soft tissue, tendons, nerves, and the function of the foot and ankle. The doctors understand how the feet affect the overall condition of the human body and the best treatments available.
Our doctors attended the Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Illinois where they completed four years of medical school. They completed their Surgical Residency Program at Loretto Hospital in Chicago, under the tutelage of one of the founding fathers of podiatric medicine.
Both Dr. Emini and Dr. Kim earned the honors of Chief Surgical Resident for their respective years of training. This is also how they met each other and became eventual partners.
Our doctors are Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery by The American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and by The American Board of Podiatric Medicine.
Being Board Certified ensures that Dr. Emini and Dr. Kim are well-trained, have successfully performed a diverse range of foot and ankle surgeries, have excellent surgical skills, and have the knowledge to pass rigorous board exams.
Our physicians have had the most specific and specialized training for the foot and ankle. Because of this critical difference, our podiatrists are the most appropriate specialists to promptly diagnose and treat various foot and ankle conditions.
Some reasons to see a foot and ankle surgeon are:
· Foot or ankle injury
· Sports injury
· Pain of the foot and ankle
· Gait abnormalities
· Unusual growths
