Carl Kihm, DPM, FACFAS

Center of Distinction Center of Distinction

I was born, raised and trained in Pennsylvania. In 2009, I earned my doctorate in Philadelphia at the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine. Then, I completed a three-year surgical residency training program at DeKalb Medical Center in Decatur, Georgia. After practicing four more years in Georgia, I moved to Louisville in 2016. Here, I am active in training residents and students at the Norton podiatric residency program. I am a caring and thorough clinician and surgeon. I treat my patients as if they were my family and I have satisfaction in helping others.

I am well qualified. I am a board-certified fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and diplomat of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. I speci...

alize in foot and ankle reconstructive surgeries in pediatric and adult patients. These range from the surgical management of complex congenital deformity and pediatric surgery (clubfoot, polydactyly, flatfoot conditions, tarsal coalitions, juvenile bunions), revision surgery in those who had previous unsuccessful outcomes, traumatic foot and ankle injuries, arthritic conditions, Charcot foot, neuromuscular conditions (spina bifida, polio, cerebral palsy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, stroke), and elective forefoot procedures (bunion and hammertoe repair, etc.).

I am a faculty member of the Podiatry Institute, an international teaching foundation for reconstructive surgery. I have also authored surgery textbook chapters and many journal articles. I teach, lecture and operate across the country and third world. I have completed seven surgery mission trips in Nepal and Guatemala. With limited resources, I volunteer my time, heart and expertise to treat pediatric patients with severe congenital conditions and the adult patients with neglected congenital deformity. For these humanitarian efforts, I was awarded the “Community Hero Award” in 2015 by MedShare. In 2016, my team’s mission work was also recognized on The Doctor’s television show in a segment called “Life Changing Surgeries.”
