Dr. Hans E. Blaakman
Dr. Blaakman has been in the field of podiatry for the past twenty plus years. He enjoys treating many conditions in patients of all ages from infants to seniors. His areas of specialty are heel pain, ingrown toenails, and diabetic footcare, along with any other biomechanical conditions of the feet or ankle. He graduated from Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT, with a degree in biology. He then immediately went on to the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine (now the Temple University of Podiatric Medicine) and graduated in 1992. Upon graduating, he was bestowed with the Stanley David award for outstanding proficiency in the clinical sciences.
He continued his medical and surgical training at the Carney Hospital, an affiliate of Boston University, in Boston, MA. After practicing for over 10 years in Bedford, NH, Dr. Blaakman decided to pack his bags and move to South Carolina in search of sunny, warmer weather, and a more temperate climate.
Dr. Blaakman is board certified in foot surgery by the American Board of Podiatry Surgery, and is a fellow in the American College of Foot Surgeons. He is involved with the South Carolina Podiatric Medical Association, the American Podiatric Medical Association, the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, and the American Society of Podiatric Surgeons.
