Learn more about Dr. Paul Steinke

Dr. Paul Steinke is a native of Wisconsin who joined the FAANT family of doctors in 2011 after completing a three-year surgical residency specializing in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery in Madison, Wisconsin. He attended medical school in Illinois at the Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine after finishing his undergraduate degree at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

 

During his residency, Dr. Steinke served as Chief Resident in his final two years of training.  He also received specialized training in revision foot and ankle surgery, an area of podiatry that focuses on the repair of previous surgical complications.  To this day he specializes in these difficult revision procedures. He employs skin closure techniques during surgery that allows patients to have a cosmetic outcome in addition to the resolution of their painful symptoms.

 

Dr. Steinke’s greatest passion is performing Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction,  a technique with demonstrated low rates of bunion recurrence (1-3% in 13 and 17-month clinical studies), and allows patients to weight-bear early after surgery in a walking boot, same day in some cases, something that classical bunion surgery does not allow.  He also serves as surgeon faculty for Treace Medical, the manufacturer of this innovative system, helping to train new and existing surgeons on this advanced and innovative technique.

 

He is board-certified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery as well as Foot Surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

 

Dr. Steinke likes to stay active in his local community, and in 2014 he was awarded the Volunteer of the Year Award from the Fort Worth YMCA, as a member of the Northpark YMCA board, and has served as a committee and board chair. He currently sits on the Credentialing Committee at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake.

 

In 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 he was awarded Top Doc recognition in his community published in Southlake Style magazine, and in 2019 as a Top Doctor in Fort Worth Magazine.

 

In his free time, Dr. Steinke enjoys golfing, softball, woodworking, skeet shooting, camping, and most importantly spending time with his family. He is an active runner and has a goal to qualify for the Boston Marathon!  Dr. Steinke has been married to his wife Carrie for 16 years and has been blessed with two beautiful children, Aiden and Brinley.

  • Returns entire bone to normal alignment; a 3D correction
  • Fixes the root cause of the bunion; an unstable joint
  • Get back on your feet quickly; in many cases within 2 weeks1,2

Traditional Osteotomy Surgery

Unstable Foundation

  • Unnaturally cuts & shifts bone; only a 2D Correction
  • Addresses cosmetic “bump” only, not the root cause
  • Patients may be off their feet for up to 6-8 weeks
