Douglas S. Hale, DPM, graduated with honors from both Tulane University School of Engineering and the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. Upon completion of his Podiatric medical degree, he pursued a residency in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery. He is a specialist in biomechanics / orthotics and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery and is highly qualified to treat all foot and ankle disorders. His engineering background gives him a unique perspective treating your problem biomechanically or surgically, and believes in doing what is best for your medical condition. If all options for treating your problem “biomechanically” are exhausted, he provides the same level of capability and experience with surgical solutions.

Dr. Hale’s residency program, currently based at Swedish Medical Center-Providence campus, was and still is rated among the top five in the United States and accepts only two residents yearly. This residency program provides extensive clinical and hospital experience in both common and complex conditions of the foot and ankle and many other: radiology, anesthesia, microsurgery, neurology, vascular surgery, rheumatology, emergency medicine, orthopedic surgery and plastic surgery. In addition, Dr. Hale has specialized training in biomechanics and orthotic therapy.
