Nicholas Laco, DPM

I am originally from Lakeville, Minnesota where I lived until moving to attend the University of North Dakota for my undergraduate education. After receiving my bachelor's degree, I attended Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. I went on to complete my residency at the University of Louisville. After residency, I furthered my training by completing a fellowship in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery with limb salvage at the University of Louisville. I am board qualified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedics at the University of Louisville and Associate Director Podiatric Residency and Fellowship Programs. I actively participate in research and have been published in numerous journals.

Dr Laco has helped me more than any other specialist I've seen over my foot problem in the last year. He's very understanding he is looking at things that other Drs have overlooked. I feel so much relief that he is a part of my care team. He is helping me get all of my Drs switched to UL Health.
