Podiatrist

Professional statement

Your feet are the most precious possessions and unfortunately often not appreciated until pain develops. The decision to alter one or both with surgery is a serious one, not to be made quickly or taken lightly. Your care is always the first priority at Ankle and Foot Institute of Texas. The American Board of Podiatric Surgery in Foot Surgery and Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery certifies Dr. Matthew Cerniglia, the founder of Ankle and Foot Institute. He completed his undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University and furthered his post-graduate training at Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine graduating Cum Laude. He later completed a highly intensive two-year surgical residency at Hillcrest Health Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma one of the country's leading podiatric medical training facilities. Dr. Cerniglia is also experienced in pediatric reconstructive foot and ankle surgery for the treatment of congenital anomalies of the lower limbs in infants and children and leads bi-annual surgical mission trips to San Pedro Sula Honduras. While taking care of the local citizens in need he also teaches medical students, orthopedic residents, and practicing pediatric orthopedists in the fine art of foot and ankle surgical reconstruction. His sub-specialties include pediatric and adult flatfoot reconstruction, repair of traumatic injuries to the foot and ankle, and is one of less than 1% of all Foot and Ankle Surgeons in the world who performs and specializes in total ankle replacement surgery. Dr. Cerniglia was the first podiatric surgeon to implant the In-Bone Total Ankle Replacement system, which now is currently owned and operated through Wright Medical.

I found the office to be very clean and inviting. The staff was very courteous and helpful, I was seen in a timely manner. The visit with Dr. Cerniglia was very informative. He was not rushed during our visit. He tookplenty of time to explain the proceudres that he planned to use to correct my issues and made sure I understood what we had discussed as well as offered me an opprotunity to ask any questions in the event he had not covered it in his conversation with me.

He is very knowledgeable and smart in his field for sure! He diagnosed an issue that I have been dealing with for about 5 years, not realizing my first doctor mis-diagnosed me. Hopefully this time around it will get fixed!

Everyone was very professional and accommodating! I actually went to a another Dr's office (on Azle Ave) and they were extremely rude. Until I called Dr. Cerniglia's office I didn't even know I was at the wrong place. Even though Iwas almost 45 minutes late, they still saw me. He was very informative and gave me options.
