Dr. Michael Matthews
I am a native of Southern California. I completed my undergraduate education at UCLA where I strove for a balanced focus on international relations and the pre-medical sciences. I then went on to graduate school at the California School of Podiatric Medicine and completed my clinical training at UCSF.
When it came time to choose a residency, I elected to diversify my 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, I 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. My training focused on complex lower extremity reconstruction, diabetic Charcot arthropathy reconstruction, and sports medicine.
After completing residency, I furthered my training at the Weil Foot and Ankle Advanced Surgical Reconstruction Fellowship in Chicago. While there, I expanded on my knowledge of sports medicine, minimally invasive surgical techniques, regenerative medicine techniques, and total ankle replacement. During my fellowship, I continued my research on various topics and was the recipient of multiple manuscript awards at international conferences throughout my time at the Institute.
Following my fellowship, I set my sights on the Washington, DC, metro area as a way to satisfy my love for both politics and medicine. I look forward to bringing my skill set to the area, and assisting patients via regenerative and minimally invasive techniques, utilizing advanced surgical reconstruction only when necessary.
In my free time, I am an avid surfer and body surfer and have perused those passions all over the globe. During the winter, I love exploring new mountains and finding new terrain for both skiing and snowboarding. I am a firm believer in mind/body balance and regularly practice yoga. While possessing little skill, I also enjoy getting out on the golf course whenever possible!
