Dr. Miguel Cunha, founder of Gotham Footcare PC and one of New York City’s leading podiatrists, is changing the way we value our feet. In 2007, he graduated from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine, and in 2010, he completed surgical training at Georgetown University Hospital and Washington Hospital Center.

His work has been featured in publications such as US News & World Report, CNBC, Time Magazine, and Martha Stewart Living.

It offers both non-surgical and surgical treatment options for all foot and ankle conditions, including dermatological and sports medicine conditions, as well as musculoskeletal deformities such as bunions and hammer toes, at Gotham Footcare, a boutique foot health clinic and surgical center.

Aside from providing cosmetic, minimally invasive, and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, Dr. Cunha also treats runners’ sports-related injuries, including neuromas, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendonitis. In addition to extracorporeal shockwave therapy, cryosurgery, TENEX, and regenerative medicine, he offers the latest cutting edge therapeutic and minimally invasive techniques.

To Dr. Cunha, providing exceptional care and compassion means showing a genuine interest in each patient’s well-being.

Cunha enjoyed helping others and learning about different health issues. When he began thinking about a career in medicine, Dr. Cunha considered becoming a dermatologist because he wanted to work with his hands and help people with skin problems like acne and rashes. However, once he had the chance to do surgery, he decided he couldn’t stop doing it.

Instead of specializing in just one field, Dr. Cunha became a podiatrist to provide patients with foot care and treatment for various skin conditions on their feet as well as a surgeon and dermatologist. By undergoing surgery to fix foot injuries or deformities, patients can now walk on healthy feet again and enjoy regular activities without pain in the future.

As a result of Dr. Cunha’s vision, Gotham Footcare was founded in 2012 by providing patients with an exceptional experience they cannot find anywhere else. In order to provide compassionate care with exceptional results, he envisioned a network of highly trained and skilled professionals using cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art facilities in New York City. In midtown Manhattan, Dr. Cunha has a location on Fifth Avenue, and one in downtown at the Woolworth building.

Besides spending time with his wife and two handsome boys, Dr. Cunha enjoys psychology, traveling, cooking, photography, architecture, and exercising.
