Welcome To Lakewood Family Foot and Ankle

about us

Lakewood Family Foot and Ankle features a well-trained team of board-certified podiatrists with exceptional skills in diagnostics, conservative treatments, and surgical procedures. Our combined expertise leverages the most up-to-date resources and techniques to handle any type of foot or ankle condition in patients of all ages.

Drs. Smith, Hodor, Patel, and Chan have a shared philosophy of striving to treat their patients conservatively at first. They provide treatments covering a full range of podiatric concerns: heel pain, skin and nail problems, bunions and hammertoes, diabetic wound care, sports medicine, and biomechanic issues.

The doctors’ combined expertise in complex surgical procedures is unmatched in the area as well, with Dr. Smith being the Chief of the Podiatric Foot and Ankle Surgery Commitee at Lakewood Regional Medical Center and Dr. Hodor serving as Foot and Ankle Surgical Residency Director. They specialize in surgery to eliminate pain, correct deformities, reconstruct the ankle using minimally invasive techniques, or deal with acute trauma.

Being a multilingual practice, our entire staff is relatable and accommodating to patients from all walks of life. We are very focused on balancing the needs and wants of our patients with their lifestyles, family factors, and other things which may contribute to their foot pain as well as to their treatment and recovery.

Because our doctors have a passion for educating people (medical students, podiatric residents, patients, and family members), no one should ever worry about asking too many questions. We are here to help and educate our patients on their condition and treatment options.

We look forward to hearing from you!
