Bio

Dr. Adam J Teichman is a board certified podiatric physician and surgeon specializing in the treatment of all aspects of foot and ankle disorders. He has been at the forefront of adopting the latest techniques and technology available for correction of deformities and improvement of function. Having comprehensive knowledge and experience in the decades of time tested podiatric procedures, he continues to further refine and modify these techniques to achieve enhanced outcomes for his patients with shorter recovery times, minimal to no pain and aesthetic appearance. He believes that the final cosmetic result of the foot is just as important as the structural correction.

During his time is Colorado, he spent several years working closely with a well known Podiatric Surgeon. It was there that he developed an interest in the field podiatric medicine.

He completed this program with 3 years of advanced surgical training in comprehensive foot and ankle surgery and also earned a 3 year certificate in lower extremity foot and ankle reconstruction and li,b salvage. During this time, he also gained extensive knowledge in foot and ankle trauma surgery, sports medicine, diabetic foot management and biomechanics. Following successful completion of this advanced surgical and wound care training program, he moved to the Lehigh Valley where he is involved with training residents and acts as an attending faculty surgeon to the residency program at St. Luke’s Hospital. He is also a panel physician at the wound healing centers at Easton Hospital and Sacred Heart Hospital.
