Dr. DiPersio received extensive training including four years of

surgical residency at Presbyterian/St. Lukeís Medical Center in Denver, after
graduating with a Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine from the New York College of

received special training at the Denver Wound Care Center where they specialize

|| Podiatrists are specialists that treat foot and
ankle disorders. They treat all the conditions that many of us have heard of
including bunions, hammer toes, corns and calluses, ingrown toenails and foot
pain of any kind. Podiatrists also treat many conditions that many of us are
unaware of such as Mortonís Neuromas, a painful condition due to a swollen
nerve near the base of a toe and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, a condition analogous
to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome of the hand and wrist. Dr. DiPersio enjoys teaching
and helping his patients understand their conditions.
He and the office staff invite you, your family and friends to
visit his office located next to the County Health Department. Call 719-738-3338
(738-FEET) for information or to make an appointment. They accept most insurance
plans including Medicare and Medicaid.
