Why Da Vinci Foot & Ankle

Based off roughly 30 cadaver dissections during his time at the Santa Maria Nuova Hospital in Florence and Santo Spirito Hospital in Rome, Leonardo da Vinci laid forth many foot and ankle anatomy and mechanics concepts that vary little from those accepted today. Like Leonardo da Vinci, an anatomist ahead of his time, Dr. Christopher Menke and Dr. Allison Menke are forward thinkers with respect to Foot and Ankle health. Our Mission is to offer unparalleled foot and ankle care with a results driven and a concierge mindset.

Board-Certified Doctors

As podiatric surgeons, Dr. Christopher Menke and Dr. Allison Menke are both specialists that differ from other doctors who’ve received limited training in foot and ankle medicine. After undergraduate school, both physicians invested 4 years at the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. There, the education rivaled that of a typical medical school, however, their curriculum focused heavily on the foot, ankle, and leg. Upon graduation, both doctors obtained the title DPM (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) and subsequently furthered their training by investing an additional 3 years in one of the country’s most rigorous surgical residencies. They graduated from the prestigious Northlake/DeKalb Medical Residency program (formally associated with Emory University) with extensive knowledge in forefoot and rearfoot reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Allison Menke is Board Certified in Forefoot Surgery and Board Qualified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery, and Dr. Christopher Menke is Double Board Certified in both Forefoot Surgery and Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. Through their affiliation with the Podiatry Institute, they have both participated in the lecture circuit nationwide and in teaching cadaver surgical skill courses to fellow podiatric surgeons and residents. Additionally, both physicians are published surgeons. Dr. Allison Menke is a published author in two chapters of the Fourth Edition of McGlamry’s Comprehensive Textbook of Foot and Ankle Surgery, the authoritative and definitive textbook of foot and ankle surgeons. Additionally, Dr. Allison Menke has written multiple chapters in the annual Podiatry Update textbooks. Dr. Christopher Menke is published in multiple Podiatry Institute textbooks as well, and he has three journal articles published in The Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery, the authoritative journal of foot and ankle surgery. Additionally, Dr. Christopher Menke was one of the contributing authors of the surgical procedures manual, Internal Fixation of The Foot & Ankle: Instructional Course Workbook. Both physicians also participate in medical mission trips to the Dominican Republic, providing care to the less fortunate through their nonprofit, Surgeons of Service.
