Dr. Niemann helped me to feel comfortable in coming to him with my food needs after my chemo & radiation treatments. I did not have a good experience in going to a previous doctor, but Dr. Niemann explained exactly what he could do to help me & resolved my concerns and foot problems right away! I not only feel more confident with resolving my issue but also in working with a doctor who is dedicated to helping his patients with compassion and excellent skills! Thank you, Dr. Niemann!

I have had serious problems for the past year with my right foot. After enduring one procedure after another I finally set out to get a second opinion. Dr. Niemann determined I was in need of a surgical procedure to fix my painful foot. I'm now on the road to recovery and am so thankful to Dr. Neimann and his staff. I would highly recommend anyone in need of a Great Podiatrist to seek help from him.

Just over one year I had surgery performed on my left foot. Dr Niemann's surgery corrected a problem I had suffered with for over 50 years!! The surgery has significantly improved my confidence going on long hikes on uneven terrain. Last month (Jan) I went hiking at Canyon-lands National Park. Two visits for a total of 18 miles. In the past I would be limping getting out of bed on the second day! Dr Niemann and his staff are very professional and courteous .
in Maricopa, AZ |
Excellent. Appropriately confident & aggressive with treatment. Sometimes I needed him to slow down and explain things more clearky, which he did.

Dr. Niemann says...

Dr. Niemann is Board Certified in Rear-foot and Ankle Reconstruction. He treats all foot and ankle diseases, including fractures of the foot and ankle, flatfeet for pediatric and adults, bunions, and simple in-office procedures: in-grown toenails, warts etc. We specialize in the complex reconstruction of the foot and ankle. Dr. Niemann is one of the few Podiatrists trained to perform Total Ankle Replacement, and is trained on all current implants, Wright Medical In-Bone, Stryker STAR, Salto-Talaris, and Zimmer Trabecular Metal Implant. We treat patients of all ages and all foot types. Dr. Niemann has performed 500 surgical cases a year, with over 750 procedures on average the past 5 years. 

I will help you understand the benefits of surgery vs non surgical options and review you foot pathology on a personal basis. 

I have full surgical priveleges at most area hospitals, and the only Podiatrist on staff and Phoenix Children's.
