Dr. Lam's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lam "Grateful to be recognized for my hard work and dedication to the foot and ankle surgery world. That path was not always easy. As a college student I was accepted to start podiatric medical school right after my toughest year as a junior. As with all college students the senior year was to be a year to unwind, look for jobs, find ourselves and our future path. On the fast track to the Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree at the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine, managed to still engage in NCAA Tae Kwon Do competition circuit and get graduation honors. The dean of the school, Dr. Mattiacci took me under his wing for my internship year after graduation from Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, of which I am very grateful for. The opportunity at Mt Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach and Jackson Trauma Center in Miami was a great experience to learn all phases of podiatry from foot care to trauma and restorative / reconstructive surgery. Running an office, mentoring young doctors, surgical fellows and student doctors has always been my way of giving back to the profession. Treating patients and getting them better is my passion. Whether I'm at a conference learning or teaching new techniques, to being a consultant with various orthopedic companies and groups, the field of Podiatric Medicine / Surgery, excites my sense of community service and curiosity. Family Foot & Leg Center, PA started in 2005 as a single practice has since expanded to 6 offices: 3 in Lee County and 3 in Collier County. 7 doctor practice in total as of 8/22/2018. FFLC vets and strives to only hire and keep the top foot and ankle surgeons in the field. We are looked upon as leaders in the field of foot / ankle medicine and surgery. As a physician, I am trained to give you the needed information about your condition whether the patient wants to hear it or not. Please visit us on social media and see what we have to offer. Join our youtube channel to hear frank discussion about foot and ankle conditions that your doctor may not talk to you about. Thank you for the honor. Dr. Kevin Lam "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lam "Continuing education a way of Life

Medicine and surgery changes very fast nowadays with innovative products and techniques.    Glad that the minimally invasive bunionectomy via the Lam modification is gaining traction as other doctors and more FFLC patients see the benefits.   Patients are able to walk the day of surgery in a boot, even had a plastic surgeon return back to work 3 days after surgery!  This surgeon definitely appreciated the 6 mm bunionectomy. 

As a physician, I am trained to give you the needed information about your condition whether the patient wants to hear it or not.    We as doctors, are humans treating humans  many conditions and variables influence outcomes.   Doctor and patient work as team for the best outcomes in all situations.    "

Dr. Lam is a real gem for those having foot problems like me. I see why FFLC has consistent 5 stars. My only regret is that I did not go to see Dr. Lam first. He was able to pinpoint the exact problem and provide treatments that worked!

It was a pleasant experience finally meeting the doctor. He was very professional yet not intimidating, and answered all my questions regarding the options I had. Having the Lam modified bunionectomy was one of the best decisions I made. The surgery went on smoothly, I almost felt no pain at all,...Read More

I saw a few comments about the podiatrists in FFLC that spoke about them in bad light, but personally if I were to rate their service I would say super excellent. I did not have an appointment but neither did I have to wait that long. However, the problem detected led to surgery which was again...Read More

I am very grateful to Dr. Kevin Lam for taking the nail biopsy. What I thought was just a discolored, ugly nail turned out to be melanoma, currently undergoing treatment at our regional cancer center. Dr. Lam saved me life, I can't say enough good things about him, made feel comfortable &...Read More
