Dr Michael has always had a passion for the function of the lower extremity. As a highly competitive athlete he has been driven to explore the many functions of the foot and ankle and what makes us function efficiently and pain free. To specialize his medical training in Podiatry was a natural fit. He loves helping his patients meet their goals of maximum enjoyment of their favorite activities whether it be a walk through Forest Park or climbing Mt Hood and beyond.
Practicing for 30 years, Dr Michael brings a wealth of experience to the Broadway Foot and Ankle Clinic. He is Board Certified in Foot Surgery as well as Rearfoot Reconstruction and Ankle Surgery by the American Board of Foot & Ankle Surgery. He is also Board Certified in Podiatric Medicine and Orthopedics by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine.
He is the Founder of the Legacy Portland/ Kaiser Residency training program in Foot and Ankle Surgery. As Residency Director for close to 20 years, he developed the program to national prominence known for its excellence in residency training. Dr Michael also headed the Tuality Hospital Wound Care Clinic from 2014-2018 specializing in Diabetic foot care and Trauma. He has a passion for education and continues to be actively involved in residency training.
Dr Michael loves spending time running the many trails that surround Portland. He was the East Coast Conference Champion in 3 miles while attending Lehigh University (also known for Trail Blazers’ CJ McCollum) and was Oregon State Games Masters Champion in 1500 meters.
