About Dr. Patel

Dr. Rahul Patel is a highly trained podiatric foot and ankle surgeon who is also on the forefront of the world's most advanced medical breakthroughs as a regenerative medicine specialist using stem cells/bone marrow aspirate concentrate, and amniotic tissue grafts. He is the the first surgeon at New York Presbyterian Queens to introduce stem cell grafting for foot surgery.

He also has an extensive knowledge in proper footwear for runners, basketball, and tennis athletes which he uses as part of his comprehensive treatment protocols. Dr. Patel graduated from undergrad at NYU, followed by the New York College of Podiatric Medicine in 2001 with a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree. He began a comprehensive 4 year residency program at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, New York, finishing as chief resident in July 2005 and earning Chief Resident of The Year honors among nearly 50 peers. His surgical training encompassed everything from bunions and hammertoes to trauma and clubfoot deformities. He is also trained in wound care and hyperbaric oxygen treatment

Dr. Patel has also lectured at various hospitals and in 2001, provided abstracts for the Compendium of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

Dr. Patel graduated from New York University in 1996 concentrating in Biochemistry and was a part-time teaching assistant in Calculus, Organic Chemistry, and Physics.  In his spare time he enjoys playing sports, reading, traveling and watching movies.
