On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, I welcome Dr. Mohammad Rimawi on the show to discuss foot and ankle health.  Mohammad Z. Rimawi, DPM, AACFAS, brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Grand Central Foot Care in Midtown East, Murray Hill, and the surrounding New York City area. As a board-qualified foot, rearfoot, and reconstructive ankle surgeon with specializations in traumatic foot and ankle injuries and complex deformities, he is able to offer his patients top-tier care no matter what problem they bring him.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The anatomy of the foot and ankle

-The most common foot and ankle injuries

-The differences between a high ankle sprain and low ankle sprain

-The importance of the diabetic foot check

-When surgery may be an appropriate intervention

-And so much more!

“If your body says something is wrong, chances are it is.”

“Proprioception is very key for me in the rehab process.”

“Preventive medicine is the best medicine.”

“Establishing ties with other professions is important.”

“The feet can be a window into your overall health.”

Mohammad Z. Rimawi, DPM, AACFAS, brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Grand Central Foot Care in Midtown East, Murray Hill, and the surrounding New York City area.

Dr. Rimawi earned his doctorate from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, where he made his mark. Not only did he graduate above the 90th percentile of his class and serve as class president for four years, but he was also recognized with the Student Service Award. That award goes to the student voted by the graduating class as making the biggest impact on the field of podiatry. Beyond his peers’ recognition, Dr. Rimawi was inducted into the Pi Delta Honor Society for his achievements in his research and his studies.

With those accolades to his name, Dr. Rimawi continued on to a three-year reconstructive foot and ankle surgery residency at DeKalb Medical Center and Jefferson Health. His colleagues and the hospital staff at the latter named him the Podiatric Resident of the Year.                             

It’s no surprise, then, that Dr. Rimawi is still impressing in his field. He’s a published author and accomplished lecturer, as well as an associate of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.                                                                                       In the spare time Dr. Rimawi manages to carve out, he loves to read, hike, and root for his favorite sports teams.
