In his role as Medical Director, Larry Newman, DPM, sees patients and is responsible for the health and well-being of thousands of Foot and Ankle Institute patients each year. Dr. Newman must ensure that patients receive the highest quality personalized care in a safe and compassionate environment.
Podiatrists are trained to diagnose problems in the whole body. Many diseases first express themselves as symptoms in the lower extremity, such as diabetes and congestive heart failure. Podiatrists are trained to detect these problems at early stages. This experience can save someone from kidney failure, a life-threatening infection or loss of life itself.
It takes the dedication of the entire faculty of 18 podiatrists, residents, students, and allied health staff to apply the highest evidence-based standards and protocols for every patient—from pediatric to geriatric—every time, according to Dr. Newman.
For the last 19 years, Dr. Newman has maintained Temple’s international reputation for podiatric excellence. Before that, he was at the helm of a robust private practice for 25 years.
