FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dr. Ashley Mychak Joins Ankle & Foot Care Centers

Ankle & Foot Care Centers, the region's largest podiatric medical practice, recently announced the addition of Dr. Ashley Mychak as a fellow to its staff of physicians and surgeons.

Dr. Mychak is working on a fellowship alongside Dr. Lawrence DiDomenico, training in advanced surgical procedures such as total ankle replacements, diabetic Charcot foot reconstruction and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery.

She brings a background in reconstruction and trauma surgery of the foot, ankle and lower extremities from her four-year long residency in podiatric medicine and surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Health System-Penn Presbyterian Medical Center in Philadelphia.

During her time as a podiatric resident, she worked diligently with other departments to improve the quality of care for limb salvage patients. It is important to her to "meet patients where they are." It was an important tenant when she was a classroom teacher and she finds it holds true in medicine as well. This includes providing information and support in a means that the patient understands. In a patient-centered approach, she believes early intervention and support from a multi-disciplinary approach improves outcomes and limb preservation. She strongly encouraged patients, especially her limb salvage patients, to use peer support groups and she worked to include rehab mental health counseling as a comprehensive care option for her patients.

Dr. Mychak graduated with her Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine in 2013 from Des Moines University in Iowa. She received a Master of Education degree in Mental and Physical Disabilities in 2006 and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 2004, both from the University of Pittsburgh.

Dr. Mychak is board-certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and board-qualified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. Prior to relocating to Niles, she lived in Philadelphia with her boyfriend, Chase, who is a fireman and paramedic. She enjoys spending time with their German Shepard, Sarai, and reading crime thriller fiction books.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region's largest podiatric care provider, with physicians and surgeons serving patients at 20 local offices, located in Alliance, Andover, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, Cornersburg, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Liberty, Niles, Poland, Ravenna, Salem, Struthers, Warren and Youngstown. Specific locations and other information are located on the group's website, at www.ankleandfootcare.com.
