    I have heard that in New York state, Podiatrists are not allowed to do "rear foot and ankle reconstruction." Does anyone know if you could be board certified for "rear foot and ankle reconstruction" if you do a residency in New York? I am looking into residency programs in New York, however I want to make sure I can sit for the boards that allows "rear foot and ankle reconstruction." Thank you in advance for your response! :)

    I am a resident in NYC. Yes, we can do rearfoot reconstruction. In fact, at my program i am confident to say, that we do more than any other NYC program. I would even say that we do more than most NJ programs as well. Come and visit, and see for yourself.

    The laws do not affect your training. It's there if you want it.
