CONWAY — David Hoeft, a doctor of podiatric Medicine has joined the staff at Memorial Hospital.
He is now accepting new patients.
Dr. Hoeft treats foot pain and trauma including fractures, lacerations and ligament and tendon disruption, and performs reconstructive foot and ankle surgery.
While he can treat common foot issues such as ingrown toe nails, bunions and plantar fasciitis, he is also available to perform more complex surgery for lower limb deformities and diabetic limb preservation techniques.
Hoeft received his doctor of podiatric medicine from Des Moines University and completed a three-year foot and ankle surgery residency with rear-foot/ankle surgery at St. Joseph Hospital in Chicago.
He says he has always wanted to work in medicine.
“While playing lacrosse in college, I observed teammates with ankle injuries get back into their game after successful foot and ankle surgeries,” he said. “I was also inspired by the scope of work being done in podiatry while in medical school and continue to be amazed by what can be done to save someone’s foot, ankle or leg. While I enjoy all aspects of my practice of podiatry, what I like most is helping my patients to get moving again and to reclaim the quality of life they seek.”
Having grown up in a small town in the Midwest with four seasons, Hoeft says he is excited to be able to practice podiatry in North Conway. He enjoys the activities that come with the seasons including hiking, hunting and fishing. He’s also looking for a court where he can play basketball. He says that he and his wife look forward to meeting people in the community.
Hoeft joins Dr. Alan Goldenhar, who also treats a broad range of foot problems and wounds, and a team of orthopedic providers who perform orthopedic surgery and treat other musculoskeletal problems.
