Bio

Dr. Kass attended Podiatry School at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine where he was elected Class President in his first year of school. He went on to graduate as only 1 of 3 in his graduating class with both academic and service honors.  Dr. Kass went on to train at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center where he was Co-Chief Resident in his first year of residency training and was Chief Resident again in his second year at both Gouveneur Ambulatory Center and Peninsula Hospital Center. Dr. Kass went straight into private practice after completing his surgical training and opened a Private Practice in Forest Hills, NY. Dr. Kass is a hyprocure master surgeon and received his training directly from the inventor of the hyprocure implant Dr. Michael Graham. Dr. Kass was one of the first surgeons in New York to use this specific implant in the treatment of peri-talar subluxations.  His office was recently named a Center of Excellence for this particular procedure. Dr. Kass is the current president of the Nassau County Podiaric Medical Association.
