Local Podiatrists Author International Textbook

BOARDMAN, Ohio (July 16, 2012) - The next generation of orthopedic and podiatric surgeons around the world may be studying from a textbook written, in part, by a pair of Youngstown-area podiatric physicians.

Dr. Lawrence A. DiDomenico, DPM, managing partner at Ankle & Foot Care Centers, authored three chapters in the recently published "International Advances in Foot and Ankle Surgery" textbook being used in medical and podiatry schools globally. Dr. Thomas Groner, DPM, also of Ankle & Foot Care Centers, co-authored two of the three chapters.

Authors from United States, Austria, England, Germany, Ireland, Italy and the Netherlands contributed to the book, published by Springer. The publisher describes it as "A comprehensive textbook of some of the most common and difficult to deal with pathologies. The first truly international, multidisciplinary manual of foot and ankle surgery by the specialty's leaders and most experienced surgeons."

"Being included in a project like this is an honor in that it means influential people respect the work you're doing and consider it state-of-the-art," Dr. DiDomenico said. "The authors of this textbook represent a prestigious group of world-renowned foot and ankle surgeons.

"Researching and writing for a textbook makes me better at what I do. You never get to stop learning, and this kind of project gives you a chance to step back and research subject matter from a new perspective."

Dr. DiDomenico collaborated with Dr. Groner on chapters on endoscopic gastrocnemius recession and intermedullary nail fixation for tibiotalocalcancal arthrodesis, and he worked with a traumatologist in Atlanta and a North Carolina podiatric surgeon on a chapter about the use of external fixation in the lower extremity.

"I enjoy the writing and research aspects of the profession, and to work with Dr. DiDomenico and be published in a textbook of this magnitude is quite an honor," Dr. Groner said.

Dr. DiDomenico, who has authored portions of textbooks numerous times in his career, is also completing three chapters for another textbook to be published this fall. He practices out of Ankle & Foot Care Centers' Boardman, Northside (Youngstown) and East Liverpool offices.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region's largest podiatric care provider, with 16 physicians and surgeons serving patients at 20 local offices, located in Alliance, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Howland, Lake Milton, Liberty, Niles, Poland, Salem, Struthers, Warren and Youngstown.
