Tracy Ferragamo, D.P.M., a Davis podiatric surgeon, has been recognized as the first HyProCure Center for Excellence in Northern California.
Ferragamo, who specializes in foot and ankle surgery, is one of fewer than 20 physicians nationwide to receive the designation from GraMedica, a global orthopedic medical device company headquartered in Macomb, Michigan. The Center of Excellence designation reflects superior quality of care, education and experience with the HyProCure medical procedure.
HyProCure is a solution to the effects of partial talotarsal dislocation, a foot imbalance that places the foot and the entire body out of alignment. The two primary symptoms of this condition are hyperprontation (where the feet roll inwards) and fallen arches.
Up to 40 percent of people of all ages are believed to suffer from this painful mis-alignment and related secondary conditions, such as bunions, heel pain, knee pain and hip and back pain. HyProCure is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that preserves full foot motion and permanently corrects talotarsal displacement at its root, realigning both the foot and the entire body, a news release said.
Ferragamo has been practicing podiatric medicine for 23 years in Northern California. She did her undergraduate work at the University of Southern California and earned her doctoral degree from the California College of Podiatric Medicine.
