In a recent article from the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS), Dr. Christopher Hyer was ranked 5th in most published research work in all major foot and ankle journals world wide from 1993 to 2017 and 4th from 2012 to 2017. Even more meaningful is that he’s achieved this as a full-time practicing physician at Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center (OFAC.) OFAC is an independent, physician-owned practice and most notably the only private practice in the region committed to this level of research.

Research is a team effort at OFAC. All of the OFAC physicians are committed to research and education as a means to improve patient outcomes. The research performed at OFAC not only results in progress in the field, but ultimately improves the level of care that our patients receive. Our surgeons are always at the forefront of foot and ankle innovation and frequently pioneer new medical procedures. In many cases, by the time a procedure becomes routine, we’ve already been doing it for a decade.
