Ronald W. Smith, M.D.


What is an Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Specialist?
The Orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist is an orthopaedic surgeon, and therefore a medical doctor. He or she has received an additional year of specialty training in a fellowship devoted to studying the literature, research, diagnoses, and operative/non-operative treatment methods for the foot and ankle. Prior to the fellowship training, the orthopedic surgeon graduates from a medical school, spends one to two years in internship or basic surgery training, and then completes four years of residency in orthopaedic surgery.
