Foot & Ankle Surgery

Christopher A. Ritter, MD

As an orthopaedic physician, the focus of my practice is complex foot and ankle deformities. Total ankle replacement, lower extremity osteotomies and complicated hindfoot fusions are unique aspects of my practice. There are many people that have arthritic deformities of the foot and ankle, often from previous traumatic injuries, that have difficulty with normal daily activities or difficulty simply walking any distance without pain. Surgical and non-surgical options exist for these patients to return them to higher levels of function with less pain.

I joined UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in 2004 when I returned to my hometown of Buffalo, upon completed of my medical education. I am board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. I also maintain membership in the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society, New York State Orthopaedic Society, Western New York Orthopaedic Society and Erie County Medical Society
