Our office is open during the COVID pandemic. We have taken extreme precautions to provide a safe environment for our patients and our employees. We now allow only one patient to enter the office at a time and the entire area is sanitized with hospital disinfectant and Ultraviolet Light Sterilization between every patient visit. When you arrive to the office for your scheduled appointment please call 516-791-3338 for entry instructions. Please stay safe in this difficult time.

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. We specialize in complicated cases including deformity correction, limb salvage, extensive wound treatment, bone infection treatment as well as any many other nerve, bone and tendon conditions. Of course we also perform bunion surgery and all types of diabetic foot surgery. A portion of our practice is devoted to revision surgery where we revise poor outcomes of previous surgical procedures including osteomyelitis, arthritis and nerve, tendon damage and implant failure.

Our practice is considered by many to be a Regional Center of Excellence in Limb Salvage in particular with cases of charcot joint disease 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. 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.
