About Rahul Patel, D.P.M.
Dr. Rahul Patel is a Podiatric foot and ankle surgeon practicing in Flushing, NY. He received his doctoral degree from Stony Brook University Health Sciences Center and completed a four year residency program. He 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. Dr. Patel is the the first surgeon at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens to introduce stem cell grafting for foot surgery. Despite being trained in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, he also focuses on non-surgical podiatric needs such as foot & ankle injuries, tendinitis, diabetic foot care, heel pain, ingrown/fungal toenails, warts and other skin disorders.
Dr. Patel has an extensive knowledge in proper footwear for runners, basketball, and tennis athletes which he uses as part of his comprehensive treatment protocols. 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.
