Dennis Martin “Marty” Chaney, DPM – Texas (incumbent)

Dr. Chaney is in private practice in San Antonio, Texas, and an adjunct assistant professor in the department of Orthopaedics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He attended the University of Northern Iowa and graduated from the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences College of Podiatric Medicine & Surgery in 1996. Dr. Chaney completed a two-year Podiatric Surgical Residency at the Harris County, West Houston Podiatric Surgical Residency Program followed by a one year Fellowship in Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery in Houston, Texas. 

In 2002, Dr. Chaney received ABFAS board certifications in Foot Surgery and in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. He is actively involved with ABFAS having served on various committees since 2004; Foot Surgery Oral Examination Committee, Cognitive Examination Committee, and as an oral examiner and case reviewer. Dr. Chaney was elected to the Board of Directors in 2014 to serve a three-year term.

Dr. Chaney has also been an active member for the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS), serving on multiple committees and as lecturer at the annual scientific meeting and surgical skills courses.


Having been a part of ABFAS in varying capacities for the past fourteen years, it is an honor to be considered for a second term on the Board of Directors. I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the continued progression of our profession through the work of ABFAS.

Board certification and recertification are valuable milestones in a physician’s career. These achievements are vital to build a successful practice. I will continue to support the goal of ABFAS to protect and improve the health and welfare of the public by the advancement of the art and science of podiatric surgery. ABFAS provides the testing component of the advancement of podiatric surgery. As a board member, I will continue to contribute to this process that fairly demonstrates a physician’s ability to practice at a high level.

My involvement in ABFAS has been a wonderful experience. I encourage others to volunteer their time in similar activities at their local, state and national level. The exchange of ideology with peers has been a valuable tool to enhance my professional and personal life.
