Dr. Bowen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bowen "Dr. Bowen originally grew up in New York and attended Podiatric Medical school in Cleveland, OH. After podiatry school, he completed a three-year surgical foot-and-ankle residency at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center in Cleveland, OH. Dr. Bowen was exposed to many high-level surgical procedures and became chief resident during his third year. Following his residency, Dr. Bowen went on to complete his fellowship at the prestigious Weil Foot, Ankle & Orthopedic Institute. His fellowship exposed him to even more complex surgeries, taught him valuable research skills, and introduced him to numerous high-level publications. In part because of this, Dr. Bowen is one of the few podiatrists who have presented research at the National Orthopedic Meeting (AAOS). Dr. Bowen's expertise includes major reconstructive surgery, arthroscopy, complex fractures and other trauma of the foot & ankle. He is certified in two total ankle replacement systems and has lectured on this topic. Dr. Bowen lectures around the country on various foot and ankle pathologies, and was also peer appointed committee member to the American College of Foot and Ankle surgeons (ACFAS). Dr Bowen is a past adjunct faculty member at RUSH Medical Center Foot and Ankle Surgery Residency Program in Chicago, IL. Dr. Bowen enjoys treating professional and serious amateur athletes, as well as "weekend warrior" athletes and is very much interested in the diagnosis and treatment of ankle conditions. In his spare time, Dr. Bowen is a fitness enthusiast and enjoys spending time with his Labrador retriever."
