    About the Physician

    Foot and ankle problems are extremely common due to the complex network of bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments found within these vital body parts. If any of these structures becomes weakened from injury, chronic overuse, deformity or disease, it’s important to see a qualified foot and ankle specialist to evaluate and treat the condition.

    Dr. Michael Bowen is a fellowship-trained podiatric surgeon who exclusively treats injuries and conditions of the foot and ankle. His goal in every case is to help patients get back to the life they want – from doing everyday activities without pain to participating in sports and exercise.
