New Podiatrists serving Greene, Putnam, Morgan, and Baldwin Counties
Dr. Allison Menke & Dr. Christopher Menke
Greensboro, Ga – May 20, 2016 Da Vinci Foot & Ankle is pleased to announce the grand opening of their new office at Lake Oconee’s Village Park Plaza in Greensboro, GA. The office of Dr. Allison Menke and Dr. Christopher Menke (Sister & Brother) officially opened their doors to the lake country in late February, offering patients 2 full time Board Certified Foot & Ankle surgeons. Last year, both physicians relocated to the area after practicing in Metro-Atlanta for the previous 8 years. Dr. Allison Menke and Dr. Christopher Menke bring years of podiatric experience to the area including their elective and reconstructive surgical expertise. Additionally, they have incorporated two state-of-the-art lasers in the Lake Oconee office; the MLS pain laser for advanced tissue healing and pain relief and the Cutera XEO Laser for aesthetics such as laser hair removal, laser vein removal, and laser treatments for toenail fungus, warts, and scars! Within the office they treat all foot and ankle ailments big or small, including but not limited to arthritis, heel pain, ingrown toenails, tendonitis, sprains, custom orthotics, etc.
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 then they continued 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, while 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 participate in surgical medical mission trips to the Dominican Republic, providing care to the less fortunate through their nonprofit, Surgeons of Service. Their current goal is to collect and distribute a 1000 pair of shoes to those in need within the tri-county area of Greene, Putnam, and Morgan County as well as the children in Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic.
Da Vinci Foot & Ankle has immediate availability for new patients and accepts all major health insurance plans. For patients electing to proceed with foot or ankle surgery, all surgeries are performed locally at St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital in Greensboro, Ga.
