Ronald James Barron, D.P.M.Doctor of Podiatric Medicine
Ron grew up in the Northern Ontario town of Kapuskasing before moving to Toronto as a 10-year-old. He studied at Laurentian University and in Orthotics and Prosthetics Technology at George Brown College – working in this field for more than a decade. After running his own orthopedic fabrication business for several years, Ron pursued medical studies in Cleveland, Ohio, graduating with a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from Kent State University.
Following his podiatry studies, Ron completed a surgical internship in Monroe, Michigan with Dr. Scott Hughes. Ron then came to Ottawa and worked as an associate with long-time Podiatrist David Greenberg, DPM, and later, as an associate with Antoun Hajj, DPM at the Ottawa Foot Clinic. Ron then relocated to NYC to complete 18 months of residency training in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery at Interfaith Medical Center and Brookdale University Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Ron has a very strong background in the management of various lower extremity issues, with a particular interest in surgery. This includes various digital and nail procedures, cyst excisions, wart excisions, neuroma excisions, tendon lengthening, and other procedures, Durolane joint injections, cortisone injections, plantar fasciotomies, and many other soft tissue surgical procedures of the foot. He is experienced in the design and fitting of foot and ankle orthoses for the management of Posterior Tibial Tendinitis/Parkinson’s Syndrome/foot drop, among other conditions. His knowledge is also extensive in the use of advanced wound healing grafts: Appligraf, Dermagraft, and Epifix, as well as the use of wound vacs and bone stimulators. Ron is experienced in the use of the Hyprocure stent to correct a reducible flat foot.
Ron is thrilled to be part of the ReVive team and looks forward to providing your foot and ankle medical needs!
