Foot & Ankle Service (Dr. Chris Chiodo)


The Brigham Foot and Ankle Division remains productive and continues to grow. We are incredibly excited to have Dr. Jeremy Smith join the team. Dr. Smith is a graduate of the Harvard Combined Program and completed his Foot and Ankle Fellowship at the Brigham. He now sees patients at the Faulkner and also at our 850 Boylston satellite. Dr. Smith is already involved with research and teaching and doing a great job. We also welcome Adrienne Bonvini, PA-C. She joins Shari Vigneau PA-C and Samantha Noonan PA-C, who are critical to the team’s success. Adrienne is quickly integrating into the Division and doing a great job. Drs. Bluman and Chiodo remain busy. They are also active within the AAOS and AOFAS. Their Instructional Course Lecture on Ankle Tendon Transfers at this year’s academy meeting was very well-received. Their research on ankle replacement and the adult flatfoot is progressing nicely. Dr. Bluman sits on the Board of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society and is Chair of the Public Education Committee. Dr. Chiodo is Chair of the Evidence Based Medicine Committee and has also been appointed Deputy Editor of the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Our Podiatrists remain active and continue see patients at the main campus and at all satellites. Dr. Regina Mostone is now fully integrated and has become a valued member of the team. Under Dr. Jim Ioli’s leadership, volume has increased. Dr. Ioli also remains active writing for Harvard Health Publications.
