Having the background of being in multiple practices gave Dr. Christopher Menke and Dr. Allison Menke (brother and sister) a well-rounded perspective as to what was working and not working within the medical field. They started with a vision that medical practices need to get back to the basics and be truly patient care driven. By giving 5-star service to patients and being patient centric enables the doctors to give their patients the attention that is needed for a better individualized medical plan. In a world where patients aren’t being heard and costs are increasing Da Vinci Foot and Ankle prides themselves on being cost effective with a patient driven experience.
Our Mission is to establish tailored treatment options for patients with foot and ankle ailments. Not every patient is the same, nor should they be treated as such. Da Vinci Foot and Ankle establishes a wide range of treatment options that fits individuals from overall wellness, orthotics, injections, braces, shoes, lasers, and surgery, depending on the patient and their specific medical needs.
Da Vinci Foot and Ankle was founded in 2015 as a single specialty (podiatry) group medical practice. The first office location, Da Vinci Foot and Ankle Lake Oconee, officially opened in February 2016 in Greensboro, GA. Da Vinci Foot and Ankle West Augusta, was established six months later in Thomson, GA.
Why Our Doctors Are Different
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.
