Dr. James Wang, DPM

Podiatrist

Professional statement

Dr. James Wang is one of a unique group of board certified podiatrists who have completed a four year residency that focused on surgical and traumatological conditions of the foot and ankle. Less than one percent of all podiatrists have this type of training. He specializes in deformities and injuries of the foot, ankle and lower leg. He is highly regarded for his pioneering surgical techniques in sports medicine using minimal incisions resulting in a quicker, less painful recovery which allows patients to walk immediately. Present technology forces patients to be immobilized and non-weight bearing for extended periods of time. One of the primary areas where this is evident in is in the treatment of hallux valgus or bunion correction. Many of the present techniques require a patient to be immobilized without walking for six weeks or longer. Dr. Wang has published peer-reviewed papers in podiatric and orthopedic journals that demonstrate how painful deformities can be corrected with minimal incisions which facilitates immediate walking and actually allows the body to heal faster. This innovative technique also results in less pain and swelling during the postoperative period compared to the traditional approach using screws and plates that accounts for the longer recovery period. Dr. Wang has also been a leading surgeon in metatarsal lengthening in congenital short metatarsals and previously operated bones. Utilizing external fixation with a minimally invasive approach to lengthen bones without bone graft restores function to many patients in an accelerated fashion. Dr. Wang’s philosophy is to provide superb care with a compassionate and personal touch.
