Denver Podiatrist Eric D. Jaakola D.P.M.
 

Education:

After graduating from the North Colorado Podiatric Surgical Residency in Greeley Colorado in 2004, I joined the Diabetic Foot and Wound Center to begin my career. I was fortunate to have a well rounded residency that provided me with the confidence and ability to treat a wide range of foot and ankle maladies from hammer toes and bunions to fractured ankles. Additionally, I have more specific training in: Ankle Arthroscopy, Ponseti casting technique for Club Foot, Total Contact Casting for plantar wounds and Charcot deformity, and external fixation for various foot and ankle deformities and fractures.
