Founded in 1986 by Dr. Scott Foster, Columbia Podiatry has served as a leading provider of foot and ankle medicine throughout the Mid-Missouri area. Dr. Scott Foster, Dr. Sarah Newey, and Dr. Terry Sanders offer excellent treatment for bunions, hammertoes, plantar fasciitis, and diabetic foot care.

We would like to announce the departure of Dr. Sarah Newey from Columbia Podiatry, effective August 1, 2017.  We will miss her greatly, but wish her and her family the best of luck as they leave Columbia for a new adventure in Cleveland, OH.
