In addition, he treats orthopedic conditions throughout the body, including broken bones, athletic injuries, work injuries, and degenerative arthritis.

Dr. Weisman understands the challenges of getting healthy following an injury and offers both operative and nonoperative treatments for most foot and ankle problems. He uses minimally invasive techniques, patient-specific implants, and arthroscopy.

Dr. Weisman completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Beaumont Health in Royal Oak, Michigan, and then furthered his training in foot and ankle reconstructive surgery at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, McGovern Medical School. He was trained in the highest standard of orthopedic surgery and his senior fellowship mentor, Dr. William McGarvey, is the current president of the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society.
