Dr. Stoddard’s focus is on managing complicated foot & ankle problems. In the early 2000’s he was the first podiatric surgeon in the state of NJ to be trained in total ankle replacements. He was trained & proctored on this challenging procedure by the world-renowned foot & ankle surgeon, Harold Schoenhaus, DPM. Several years later, Dr. Stoddard had the fortune of being proctored by the designer/inventor of a second generation total ankle replacement system known as the Inbone Total Ankle. The designer of this ankle implant is world-renowned Mark Rieley, MD who has also designed the implant for the kyphoplasty procedure used in spine surgery.
