Dr. Cottom is a double board- certified orthopedic foot and ankle fellowship trained foot and ankle surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. Most recently, he opened Florida Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center in Sarasota, FL in January 2016.
Dr. Cottom earned his doctorate in Podiatric Medicine from Chicago Medical School and completed his surgical residency at Detroit Medical Center in Detroit, Michigan. He then went on and completed a 12-month orthopedic foot and ankle fellowship at the prestigious Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center in Columbus, Ohio under the direction of Dr. Greg Berlet MD, Tom Lee MD, Terry Philbin DO and Chris Hyer DPM. This is the same exact fellowship orthopedic surgeons complete if they wish to sub-specialize in orthopedic foot and ankle surgery. Dr. Cottom is the only surgeon trained this way in the state of Florida. He treats all conditions of the lower extremity including complex issues that many other surgeons send to him for treatment.
At Florida Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center we treat all conditions of the lower extremity in a relaxed, slow pace and friendly environment. We treat our patients as if they are family and take great pride in that. The training and experience of Dr. Cottom and his team has is what sets him apart from others.
