FL Podiatrist Creates Scholorship Program for Student Athletes

Seniors student athletes from each of Collier County’s public high schools were awarded certificates and sports medals and have become eligible for one of three $2,500 scholarships awarded in late spring.

Dr. Mickey E. Gordon

Mickey E. Gordon, DPM, a Naples podiatrist with Gulfcoast Foot & Ankle Center, created the program after hearing of the difficult times his patients’ children and grandchildren were having with increased expenses of a college education. During his 31-year career as a podiatric physician and surgeon, Dr. Gordon has treated many athletic and sports injuries and has become well aware that lower extremity injuries are all too common in high school sports.

Gordon recruited his bank, Bank of Florida - Southwest and hospital Physicians Regional Medical Center to jointly pledge three $2,500 scholarships for student athletes. “It is a pleasure to recognize these student athletes for their hard work and accomplishments both in the classroom and on the field, court, pool or track,” said Dr. Gordon.

Many People Unaware that Foot Pain is Not Normal: NJ Podiatrist 


"A majority of people assume that foot pain is not that serious and can be ignored," says Peter Wishnie, DPM. "There are other people who have no idea that there exists preventative as well as curative care for the feet. The sad thing about it is that poorly managed foot pain could lead to surgery. However, this doesn't have to be the case because proper foot care can eliminate the need for surgery." 


Dr. Peter Wishnie


"There are many ways that injuries in the feet and ankles present themselves, and they come about due to different reasons. Engaging in sports is one of the main reasons. Another origin of foot problems is diabetes. Whatever injury a person has should be handled with care to prevent it from becoming worse," says Dr. Wishie.

WA Podiatrist Chose Podiatry to Make a Difference 


Dr. Terry Hess chose podiatry as a specialty because it is not just about foot problems. Podiatry addresses global health issues that may manifest first in the foot. “I started out my career as a pharmacist and I didn’t feel like I was helping anyone,” explains Hess. “I was treating the symptoms with pharmaceuticals and masking pain, but not really solving the real problems.”

When Hess discovered podiatry, he knew that he had found the place where he could truly make a difference in his patients’ overall health and well-being. "People often talk about their feet hurting at the end of a long day," says Hess. “It is not normal for your feet to hurt from a day of normal activity.” In fact, sore feet are a sign of a problem that, once properly diagnosed, can be corrected.

IL Podiatrist  Was a Former Rodeo Rider


Dr. Duane "Dewey" Hanzel's hobbies, from playing rugby to rodeo roping, have always reflected his station in life. The Montana native got his nickname from his football teammates in high school. Sporting a long pony tail at the time, his friends took to calling him "Dewey" -- a joking reference to the Dalai Lama. The ponytail has been gone for some time, and today, he is most recognizable in scrubs and a white coat. 


Dr. Duane Hanzel


Hanzel attended the University of Ostheopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines, Iowa, now Des Moines University. All through medical school, his internship at Riverside Hospital and his residency at New Mexico Veterans Affairs Health Care System, Hanzel belonged to two professional rodeo associations -- the National Rodeo Association (NRA) and International Professional Rodeo Association (IPRA). "Once you get into it, it's like anything else -- kind of addicting," he said of his rodeo days.
