Dr. Donald Harrison is a Board Certified foot and ankle surgeon who has been in practice for greater than more than medicine and ankle reconstruction, he holds the title as the first podiatrist to perform a total ankle implant in the State of Maryland. He has performed more that 5000 surgical procedures which includes achilles tendon repair, ankle arthroscopies, ankle fractures, plantar fascia repair, heel spur resection, plastic surgery flaps, skin grafts, bunionectomies, and a whole lot more. 

As well, Dr. Harrison won his first national title with the Glenarden Track Club while performing at the 2000 USATF Junior Olympic Championships in the 2000m Steeplechase. He subsequently ruptured his plantar fascia while running in a cross country championship meet at the collegiate level  during his sophomore year of college at Mount St. Mary's University. After being treated by a podiatrist, he gained a great appreciation for the unique offerings of sports medicine combined with podiatry. 
Since graduating from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in 2008 and a rigorous residency training program at Drexel University College of Medicine, he has been seeing individuals of all ages in the office, operating room, as well as in an athletic setting.
