Michael Schumacher, DPM, FACFAS
Michael Schumacher, DPM is a podiatric surgeon board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and is the former chair of the medical advisory committee of the United States Squash Racquets Association. He also is the indoor shoe consultant to the Prince Sporting Goods Corporation.
He is on staff in the Department of Orthopedics at The Mount Sinai Hospital and is a consultant podiatrist in the Department of Orthopedics at the NYU Hospital. He holds an academic appointment to the Mount Sinai School of Medicine as a Clinical Assistant Podiatrist in the Department of Orthopedics, where he has been on staff since 1998.
He graduated from the University at Stony Brook in 1986 and the Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in 1993. He completed a three-year podiatric surgical residency at the Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, a major teaching affiliate of the NY Presbyterian Hospital network. The emphasis of the training was on foot and ankle reconstructive surgery, as well as non surgical treatment of other foot disorders, such as fungal and other dermatological problems, as well as sports medicine training.
Dr. Schumacher has been in private practice since finishing his surgical training in 1996. He feels his hands-on, personalized approach to patient care sets him apart from other practitioners in the tri-state area. As a solo practitioner, all patients, both surgical and non surgical are treated only by Dr. Schumacher, never a "young associate".
