Meet Dr. Michael Matthews – Bethesda, MD & Springfield, VA, Podiatrist



Dr. Michael Matthews, DPM
Doctor of Podiatric Medicine

Dr. Michael Matthews brings a wealth of knowledge, training, and experience to our patients at The Podiatry Center. Keep reading to learn more about how he can help you find relief from your foot or ankle pain and get back to enjoying your life free from pain.

Dr. Matthews is a native of Southern California. He completed his undergraduate education at the University of California, Los Angeles where he strove for a balanced focus on international relations and the pre-medical sciences. He then went on to graduate school at the California School of Podiatric Medicine and completed his clinical training at UCSF.

When it came time to choose a residency, Dr. Matthews elected to diversify his skillset and left the West Coast, attending the Mount Auburn Foot and Ankle Reconstructive Residency at Mount Auburn Hospital, part of Harvard Medical School. While there, Dr. Matthews served as clinical faculty at Harvard Medical School, commanded the speaker’s podium at both national and international conferences, played a pivotal role in the design of many new cutting-edge surgical systems, and was published on a variety of topics in the profession’s top journals. His training focused on complex lower extremity reconstruction, diabetic Charcot arthropathy reconstruction, and sports medicine.

After completing residency, Dr. Matthews furthered his training at the Weil Foot and Ankle Advanced Surgical Reconstruction Fellowship in Chicago. While there, he expanded on his knowledge of sports medicine, minimally invasive surgical techniques, regenerative medicine techniques, and total ankle replacement. During his fellowship, Dr. Matthews continued his research on various topics and was the recipient of multiple manuscript awards at international conferences throughout his time at the Institute.

Following his fellowship, Dr. Matthews set his sights on the Washington, DC metro area as a way to satisfy his love for both politics and medicine. He looks forward to bringing his skill set to the area, and to assist patients via regenerative and minimally invasive techniques, utilizing advanced surgical reconstruction only when necessary.

In his free time, Dr. Matthews is an avid surfer and body surfer, and has perused those passions all over the globe. During the winter, he loves exploring new mountains and finding new terrain for both skiing and snowboarding. He is a firm believer in mind/body balance, and regularly practices yoga. While possessing little skill, he also enjoys getting out on the golf course whenever possible!
