Good Day New York

Rock G. Positano, DPM, MSc, MPH, director of the non-surgical Foot and Ankle Service at HSS, appeared on Good Day New York and discussed the importance of foot health, orthopedically sound footwear, and the book he co-authored, ‘Dinner with DiMaggio.’

Dr. Positano cited, “What people don’t realize is that a foot and ankle problem in and of itself is not life threatening, but it’s lifestyle threatening. As we all know, trying to get around with a painful foot is one of the most difficult thing in the world.” He further added, “One of the nice things about a foot is that because of the fact that it does show systemic disease problems, when a person does come in with a foot problem we can often pick up other processes and other diseases that may be going on. That’s why, respect your feet and love your feet.”
