MaineGeneral's podiatric surgeons provide expert podiatric care as members of the MaineGeneral Orthopaedics' medical staff.
They specialize in multiple foot and ankle conditions including orthopaedic, dermatological, infectious, neurological
and vascular conditions. They treat patients at MaineGeneral Orthopaedics' offices in Augusta, Gardiner and Oakland and perform surgery at MaineGeneral Medical Center's Alfond Center for Health in Augusta and Thayer Center for Health in Waterville.
To ensure the best treatment possible, they consult immediately with the practice's board-certified orthopaedic surgeons if patients need care beyond their podiatry specialization.
