...
Dr. Kenneth M. Leavitt, DPM
Board Certified Foot Surgeon
Dr. Leavitt specializes in surgical correction of foot problems. He places a high priority on learning and using the most up-to-date procedures to benefit patients. His professional career has been characterized by his willingness to work in close collaboration with other kinds of medical specialists (orthopedists, radiologists, neurologists, anesthesiologists, plastic surgeons, pediatricians, etc.) to assure the best possible outcomes for his patients. Dr. Leavitt is a Diplomate, American Board of Podiatric Surgery, certified in Foot Surgery, and has been in practice treating disorders of the foot, ankle joint and lower leg since 1983. He is a native of Stoneham, Massachusetts, a 1979 graduate of Boston University and a 1983 graduate of the Chicago Medical School, at the Finch University of the Health Sciences, Foot & Ankle Surgery Faculty (formerly Illinois College of Podiatric Medicine) in Chicago, Illinois. He is a member of the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons and a long-time instructor affiliated with several post-graduate podiatric surgical training programs in the Boston area. In November, 2009, he was appointed Chief of Podiatric Medicine and Surgical Services at New England Baptist Hospital.
In 1993, with the endorsement of the U.S. State Department, he and several other U.S. and Lithuanian physicians founded a non-profit medical and surgical clinic in Lithuania, the Baltic-American Medical & Surgical Clinic. The Clinic was the only one of its kind in the former Soviet Union and included a variety of surgical specialties staffed by English speaking foreign and indigenous physicians and nurses. A variety of Boston area surgeons visited the Clinic and performed and taught their specialties. When the project became more complex than expected, Dr. Leavitt gave up his practice in suburban Boston and moved with his family to Lithuania for 4 years while he personally assumed direction of the Clinic.
Dr. Leavitt's medical and surgical teaching and clinical experience in Lithuania brought him into contact with many profoundly diseased and disabled children and adults - not cared for during the 50-year Soviet occupation. For his humanitarian work and contributions to the development of that country, the President of Lithuania awarded Dr. Leavitt full citizenship in 1999, a high honor.
When Dr. Leavitt returned to the U.S., he joined the surgical staff of the New England Baptist Hospital, one of the ten top orthopedic hospitals in the United States. He also maintains surgical and admitting privileges at the Winchester Hospital, Lawrence Memorial Hospital and St. Elizabeth Medical Center and Emerson Hospital. He is conversational in German and Lithuanian languages.

My wife's internet research on bunions and treatment found Dr. Leavitt, his website and email address. My wife wrote and the next day had a response from him. A short time later with MRI films and X-rays in hand, we were in his office. He knew the cause of the problem; the procedure needed to correct it and told me what the long recovery would involve. He told me to think it over as it was major reconstructive surgery, but I knew it was my only option. The procedure was done on November 18, 2004. I followed directions during my recovery period to the letter and beginning on March 2005, I returned to work pain free.
Dr. Leavitt helped me more than surgically; he saved my future. I am a Fireman/EMT, nationally certified fire inspector and recently certified fire investigator. In this profession you need good balance and mobility. The job requires climbing ladders, lifting equipment and carrying stretchers regularly. My retirement pension will be based on length of service; now I can work the full term because of Dr. Leavitt. He has given me the quality of life that allows me to enjoy activities with my wife and family again. I would highly recommend Dr. Leavitt.

I would like to thank Dr. Leavitt tremendously for the wonderful surgery he did on my foot. He is such an expert surgeon coupled with human touch and professionalism. I'm fortunate to have him as my surgeon, and it is encouraging to know that I will be able to walk straight again in due time. And I appreciate that he sent me those x-rays...

I was told by the doctor that it could be fixed, that's when I met Doctor Kenneth Leavitt. He checked me out and found that I have Charcot Marie Tooth Disease (CMT), which is a nerve disease. He said he could have me up and walking like before surgery. He fused my foot bones together and did a nerve transplant and put a rod in my foot to be removed after 12 weeks of bed rest.
I started doing therapy and everything is going well. First I used a walker, then two canes, then one cane and finally I use no canes around the house. When I was in the hospital for my foot surgery, it was over Christmas and Dr. Leavitt came to see me everyday. What Doctor do you know who would do this?
Dr. Leavitt is a very caring and concerned doctor. He told me I could e-mail him anytime and ask him any questions and he would answer them. He did answer my questions and as far as I'm concerned, I would recommend him to anyone. He's a very loving and caring doctor.
