Catherine Cheung, DPM, FACFAS
Board Certified in Foot Surgery and Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery
Dr. Cheung was introduced to podiatry when she suffered from foot and ankle pain while running during her undergraduate years at UCLA. She went to seek treatment and eventually shadowed a podiatrist. Ultimately she had extensive foot and ankle surgical reconstruction which led to her own interest in studying podiatric medicine. After her four years at podiatric medical school, she further completed an additional four year foot and ankle surgical residency. She has worked extensively through a large healthcare organization but has opted for a smaller private practice to provide more boutique patient care.
