Each year, we provide advanced training to qualified Podiatric Surgeons who’ve graduated from a three-year Podiatric Surgical Residency through a Surgical Fellowship program recognized by the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.
Our Fellowship, led by Dr. Younes, consists of an intensive 12-month training program designed to expose Fellows to extraordinary surgical and clinical techniques. Our Fellows learn directly from our team of podiatry experts by being present in the operating room, examining advanced surgical procedures, and earning valuable first-hand experience!
This year, we’re excited to announce that Dr. John Greaves and Dr. Vishal Desai have joined the MFA team as our 2021 Surgical Fellows!
