Dr. David Gitlin is a Board Certified podiatric foot and ankle surgeon with extensive fellowship training in limb reconstructive surgery as well as all aspects of both adult and pediatric foot and ankle conditions including cosmetic foot surgery, bunion correction, trauma, arthroscopy, charcot reconstruction, congenital deformity, and revision surgery. The majority of our procedures are performed with minimal incision and most patients are able to put weight on their foot the day of surgery after even the most extensive procedures.
Our practice is considered by many to be a Regional Center of Excellence in Limb Salvage in particular with cases of diabetic foot complications as well as difficult foot and ankle reconstructive surgery. We are also one of the few practitioners of the classic ilizarov technique in North America for minimal incision bloodless correction of congenital and acquired foot and ankle deformity as well as cases of osteomyelitis, nonunion, and revisional surgery. But most importantly- we treat our patients as if we were treating our own family. We currently provide patient care to the best of our abilities at multiple locations in New York City and Long Island.
