One Foot at a Time
Dr. Christopher DiPersio

   There is a full-time podiatrist in downtown Walsenburg. Dr. Christopher R. DiPersio, DPM has been practicing at 125 East 5th Street since September 2003. Dr. DiPersio also sees patients at the Colorado State Veterans Nursing Home and has active privileges at Spanish Peaks Regional Medical Center in Walsenburg. He also maintains active privileges at both St. Mary Corwin and Parkview Medical Centers in Pueblo.

   Dr. DiPersio received extensive training including four years of podiatric medical school and a three-year surgical residency. The doctor did his surgical residency at Presbyterian/St. Lukeís Medical Center in Denver, after graduating with a Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. He graduated summa cum laude and was valedictorian of his class. In addition to his training in general podiatric medicine and surgery, he received special training at the Denver Wound Care Center where they specialize in the treatment of diabetic feet and wounds.


   Podiatrists are specialists that treat foot and ankle disorders. They treat all the conditions that many of us have heard of including bunions, hammer toes, corns and calluses, ingrown toenails and foot pain of any kind. Podiatrists also treat many conditions that many of us are unaware of such as Mortonís Neuromas, a painful condition due to a swollen nerve near the base of a toe and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, a condition analogous to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome of the hand and wrist. Dr. DiPersio enjoys teaching and helping his patients understand their conditions.

   He and the office staff invite you, your family and friends to visit his office located next to the County Health Department. Call 719-738-3338 (738-FEET) for information or to make an appointment. They accept most insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid.
