Foot and Ankle Associates based in Los Gatos, California are committed to helping people maintain active and independent lifestyles. By educating patients and addressing their needs, they are focused on treating and preventing a wide spectrum of foot ailments in people of all ages.
Podiatrists are uniquely trained to treat all foot and ankle disorders. Preparatory education for most Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs) consists of 4 years of pre-med undergraduate studies, followed by 4 years of coursework in an accredited podiatric medical school. After this, graduates attend a 2 or 3 year hospital-based residency. They then must sit for a state licensing exam. Podiatrists are well-versed in sports medicine, biomechanics, radiology, dermatology, and surgery relating to the foot and ankle.
Drs. Meltzer, Elardo, and Sheth are an integral part of the healthcare team, working with other medical specialists and primary care physicians, with a common goal of keeping people healthy.
