The Foot Center of New York, located in East Harlem, is the nation’s oldest facility for providing specialized medical care for the feet and ankles. Established in 1911 by a group of foot specialists who volunteered to care for the immigrants arriving in Harlem, it is the largest facility dedicated exclusively to foot care in New York City. The Foot Center of New York is the clinical teaching affiliate of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, and is a major health resource for the residents of Harlem, the south Bronx and nearby communities. The Foot Center is staffed by skilled podiatrists who specialize in the care and treatment of the foot and ankle for adults and children, helping patients maintain healthy, pain-free feet and ankles. The Foot Center has a national reputation for the quality and scope of its foot health programs. Hundreds of thousands of people of all ages in the community and throughout the New York City area have benefited from the skill, dedication and quality of the care provided by our staff.
