dr. ali albert anaim
“Dr. Anaim goes beyond the professional call of duty when working with his patients. He is not only motivated to continually learn more in the practice of Podiatric Medicine, but puts great work into assimilating it to his own experiences in developing new and innovative ways to treat his patients.”

Dr. Anaim believes in treating his patients using only the latest techniques and materials in foot and ankle surgical intervention, all by means of a caring and compassionate experience. As a premiere podiatric surgeon on the east coast, performing podiatric plastic surgery after two years of fellowship in lower extremity plastic surgery, his aesthetic techniques have been used to train other physicians across the U.S. and around the world.

Dr. Anaim is an attending physician at Temple University Hospital and an adjunct professor at the Temple Foot and Ankle Institute. He is also responsible for the surgical training of podiatric students Dr. Anaim’s areas of interest include, but are not limited to Elective Forefoot Procedures, Diabetic Limb Salvage, Rear Foot and Ankle Procedures, and Emergency Trauma Surgery.

Dr. Anaim believes in giving back to the men and women who have served our country. For the past thirteen years, Dr. Anaim has been providing services to our veterans, including those who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. This includes routine foot care and proper fitting of prosthetics. In addition, Dr. Anaim serves as the Director of Podiatry Services at the Holidaysburg Veterans Home in Altoona, PA.
