This content was provided by Dr. Carlson "Dr. Carlson is originally from Alaska. Growing up, he spent his summers working in the salmon commercial fishing industry. He spent time on boats, set netting, and in his grandparents' cannery. One summer he even spent time in the oil field to help pay for college. As a college athlete, Dr. Carlson learned the significance of the feet and the important role they play for the rest of the body. This is what sparked his interest in the field of Podiatry. With more than a decade of traveling around the country with his wife Alison, they are excited to share his knowledge and expertise with the residents of Alaska. Dr. Carlson earned his medical degree from Des Moines University in Iowa before completing a three-year surgical residency in Salt Lake City, Utah. This residency program provided the advanced training needed to be considered an expert in the treatment of all ailments of the foot and ankle, including reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, sports medicine, pediatric, diabetic and geriatric lower extremity care. The last several years, Dr. Carlson has been practicing in both Ohio and Utah. He has enjoyed being able to devote quality time and effort to his patients and ensure they understand their treatment plan. More recently he has been focused on the use of stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine. He currently serves on the board of directors for World Access to Regenerative Medicine, a non-profit organization. Dr. Carlson is a fluent Spanish speaker and enjoys using this in his medical practice. He has served the people of Guatemala and Spain and plans to perform more medical missions in the future. Spending time with family is also important; Dr. Carlson, his wife, and four children love to visit local attractions and activities, spend time outdoors, and attend athletic events."
