Brett Fried, DPM
Brett Fried, DPM, is a board-certified podiatric surgeon at South Florida Foot & Ankle Centers in Royal Palm Beach and Belle Glade, Florida.
Dr. Fried and his twin brother were born and raised by their father in Staten Island, New York. Watching his grandfather deal with diabetes on a daily basis, he quickly learned to appreciate the field of medicine and eventually attended medical school at the prestigious New York College of Podiatric Medicine in Manhattan. After medical school, Dr. Fried started his residency in New York City, where his time was spent at four major hospitals: NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan in Manhattan, NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln in the Bronx, NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem in Manhattan, and The Po...
One of his proudest accomplishments during that time was his contribution to helping those affected during the tragedy of 9/11. Hundreds upon thousands of New York City firefighters, police officers, members of the armed forces, EMS workers, and civilians wounded at Ground Zero came to the medical station in St. Paul’s Cathedral to be treated. Dr. Fried, along with other podiatric and medical specialists, put forth countless hours treating the wounded in the symbolic pew where George Washington attended weekly services.
After two years of surgical training in New York, Dr. Fried moved to Smyrna, Georgia. There, he furthered his surgical skills by completing a reconstructive foot and ankle residency program, which was associated with several hospitals and surgical centers in Georgia. During his time there, he took a trip back to New York City to marry his wife, Jessica, who has been with him since college and throughout his medical journey. They have two sons named Jacob and Tyler and a daughter named Maddie.
They then headed further south to Florida, where his professional podiatric career began with South Florida Foot & Ankle Centers. Dr. Fried is currently on staff at several of the surrounding hospitals, including JFK Medical Center, Palms West Hospital, Wellington Regional Medical Center, and Lakeside Medical Center.
He is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and a Diplomate of the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. Dr. Fried is fully licensed in the state of Florida.
