Expertise Dr. Goddard has extensive knowledge of pediatric foot and ankle issues and has advanced surgical training with children.

Dr. Goddard took part in dozens of medical missions to Mexico and El Salvador focused on the complex reconstruction of congenital foot, ankle and leg deformities.

This surgery actually relieves the underlying cause of pain, providing immediate and lasting results for patients who have often suffered for years. Dr. Goddard has specific interest in sports medicine and is personally invested in helping athletes stay performance-ready and keeping “weekend warriors” on their feet and able to participate in their favorite recreational activities.
