Jeremy Walters, DPM

Initially pursuing a career as an athletic trainer, Dr. Jeremy Walters found his true calling in podiatry. Board Certified in Foot surgery, Dr. Walters’ abilities range from treating sports medicine and orthopedic injuries and fractures to management of non-surgical conditions. This various skillset, alongside his nurtured passion for helping others, is what motivates Dr. Walters to care for his each of his patients on an individual basis. He understands the most common surgical fear of his patients is usually the pain and/or loss of function from surgery that may arise from a loved ones’ former experience. However, with the evolution of various types of pain management and his specialty for providing arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgeries, Dr. Walters reminds his patients, “this isn’t your grandmother’s bunion surgery.”

Born and raised in North Carolina, Dr. Walters received his undergraduate degree in Health Education at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and pursued his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, PA at Temple University. He worked at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, a major multi-hospital health system, for his Internship and completed his residency at the West Houston Medical Center in Houston, TX, where he served as Chief Resident.

Dr. Walters married his high school sweetheart and they currently reside in Norfolk, VA, along with their three young children. When he isn’t serving his patients or in surgery, Dr. Walters enjoys fishing, watersports, cooking and grilling.
