Dr. Theresa Ronna, DPM

Podiatrist

Professional statement

Dr. Theresa Ronna was raised in Passaic County, and aspired to be a professional dancer. She initially attended Montclair State University as a dance major, but realized that she needed a back-up plan. Dr. Ronna's love for science and interest in sports medicine changed her direction to pre-med. Dr. Ronna attended the NY College of Podiatric Medicine, where she continued to excel in sports medicine and research. Dr. Ronna launched the Podiatric Medical Review, a peer reviewed journal where students can publish their work. After graduating in 1996, she did a surgical residency at United Hospital/Roseland Surgical Center. Upon residency completion, Dr. Ronna spent three years at Naval Hospital Camp Lejuene in North Carolina. It was there that she put her knowledge of lower extremity biomechanics and sports medicine into practice as she treated Marines and sailors. During her time at Camp Lejuene, the Base General awarded her the highest civilian honor, the Naval Commendation Award, for her work as a podiatrist. After returning to NJ, Dr. Ronna began practicing part-time and found a niche in working with the geriatric population. Branching out into diabetic wound care, she treated patients with Alzheimer's and dementia. Dr. Ronna has trained with many highly regarded pioneers in the field of sports medicine. She received a stipend from Harvard Medical School to attend their summer research program, and was published as a result of her work there. Dr. Ronna also did an internship with Dr. Lyle Mikali, a Harvard Medical School professor and orthopedic surgeon who is an expert in dance medicine. She spent two subsequent years in clinical observation with William Hamilton, MD, a world-renowned orthopedic surgeon who is considered the father of dance medicine.

Dr. Ronna was fantastic. She explained things very clearly, and made sure I understood what she was talking about before proceeding. The staff was very polite and quick, and I felt a level of comfort I don't often feel in a doctor's office. Overall, a great experience.

Dr. Ronna was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, her examination was concise yet she answered all my questions and came up with a clear plan with next steps. I happen to have my two small children with me and the office staff was great with them as well.
