UofL Physicians – Podiatric Medicine & Surgery, formerly known as Foot Doctors P.S.C., has been in Louisville for over 30 years. The practice strives to provide the region’s most sophisticated foot and ankle care for individuals of all ages. Our providers work closely with a network of other medical specialists including family and internal medicine, physical therapists, orthopedics, endocrinologists, rheumatologists, pain specialists, neurologists and radiologists. These working relationships assure each patient is afforded the optimal care available.

Our practice has been working with UofL Health – UofL Hospital and UofL School of Medicine for many years with direct involvement in residency education. Dr. Timothy Ford is also the director and founder of the Podiatric Residency Program at UofL Health – Jewish Hospital. Our leadership in podiatry in the region has led to our practice joining UofL Physicians and expanding our ability to collaborate with other providers to ensure holistic expert and compassionate care for our patients.
