Dr. Hood Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hood Jr " Dr. Christopher R. Hood JR, DPM, is a fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon / podiatrist and the newest physician to join Nehuahs Foot & Ankle, working out of the Nashville - St. Thomas Midtown Office. Dr. Hood grew up in suburban Philadelphia, Pensylvania. He graduated from the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in 2012 and then performed his residency training at the Crozer Keystone Health Center in Upland, PA from 2012 to 2015 where he was Chief Resident during the third year of training. Here he learned the basics in podiatric medicine with a global exposure to wound care, diabetic care, office palliative care for everyday ailments, and forefoot to rearfoot surgery for both reconstructive and traumatic pathology. Upon completion, he was accepted into the Pennsylvania Intensive Lower Extremity Fellowship under Dr. Jason R. Miller, DPM at Premier Orthopaedics in Malvern, PA. The fellowship is one of ~40 in the country for extended podiatric/foot and ankle surgical training sponsored by the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS). During the fellowship, he underwent advanced training in complex pathology including sports medicine, forefoot and rearfoot reconstruction, pedal rheumatological disease, trauma, and joint (ankle) replacement surgery. The fellowship transitioned into employment by Premier Orthopaedics where he worked for two years before relocating to Nashville, TN where he then joined up with Neuhaus Foot & Ankle. Dr. Hood also has an interest in research with multiple published manuscripts in foot and ankle journals, poster abstracts at national conferences, and a monthly blog in Podiatry Today magazine. Furthermore, he lectures both locally and nationally within multiple podiatric organizations (e.g., PPMA, APMA) including both scientific/medical related topics (foot and ankle pathology) as well as lectures pertaining to podiatric medical education, new practitioner growth, and social media in medicine/podiatry. To that end, he has created his own website, "footandankleresource", with the goal of podiatric medicine/surgery education and awareness. Dr. Hood is currently accepting new patients in Nashville, Tennessee. Please call 615 220 8788 to schedule your appointment. He is looking forward to treat you today!"

I was very impressed with Dr. Hood. He was quite knowledgeable and caring. I have previously been to other foot doctors, but chose to find a better podiatrist. I am really glad that I found him and highly recommend him.
