Business name: Newtown Comprehensive Foot Care
Address: 153 South Main Street Room A, Newtown
Owners: Andrew Campbell, DPM, FACFAS, and Hang Huynh, DPM
Business background: Dr Huynh and Dr Campbell met while working together handling podiatric cases at several hospitals in the New York City area and decided to establish a private practice together in Newtown.
They first opened up in shared office space with Dr Jeffrey Friedman in fall 2016, and opened their own practice in the same medical office facility in late April.
Dr Campbell received his podiatric medical degree from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine and completed his surgical residency in foot surgery at St Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, N.Y. He remains an attending in the department of surgery at a Level I trauma center; is actively involved in the surgical residency program; and has trained residents in foot surgery for more 20 years.
Dr Hang Huynh received her podiatric medical training at the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Independence, Ohio. She completed her four-year residency in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery at St Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, where she was chief resident in her last year of training. Dr Huynh treats medical conditions including bunions, hammertoes, neuromas, heel pain, foot and ankle injuries, fractures, diabetic foot conditions, wound care, ingrown toenails, warts, corns, calluses, athlete’s foot, fungal toenails, flat feet, children’s foot problem, and sports medicine injuries of the lower extremities.
Business focus: Dr Huynh and Dr Campbell are specialists in the medical and surgical treatment of the foot, and have extensive training in reconstructive foot surgery, wound care, diabetic foot care, and sports medicine of the lower extremity. They work with patients to maximize benefits on individual health care plans, and accept same-day appointments.
Important to know: While Newtown Comprehensive Foot Care treats all patients, Dr Huynh and Dr Campbell specialize in pediatrics and orthotics, and are committed to community outreach to help educate local residents about foot and ankle care and its impact on overall health.
Upcoming events: On August 5, from 9 am to 2 pm, the practice is hosting a free pediatric clinic that will provide a brief exam, gate analysis, and suggestions about treatment or utilizing pediatric orthotics, if appropriate. Dr Huynh says that the practice’s state-of-the-art orthotic inserts and footwear help prevent sports injuries including shin splints for runners, and a condition called calcaneal apophysitis, which effects boys 10-12 and girls 8-12 who play soccer and similar sports.
They will also have a booth at the Sand Hill Plaza Verizon Wireless community service event on July 23.
Hours: Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm; and Saturdays 9 am to noon.
