Dr. Russ’ approach: “Our mobility is so integral to our quality of life. I take a conservative approach to care, reserving surgery as the last option. My goal is to work with my patients to return them to the activities that they love – from high level athletics, work, enjoying time with friends and family, and everything in between.”

Dr. Russ’ background: After graduating from the University of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree, Dr. Russ earned his medical degree and completed residency training at the University of Minnesota. He went on to pursue a fellowship in foot and ankle orthopedic surgery at St. Mary’s Orthopedics in Portland, Maine.
