Timothy J. Mineo, DPM, D.ABFASBiography


Timothy Mineo, DPM, D.ABFAS, earned his bachelor’s degree in applied physiology from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine from the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (formerly Scholl College).

He currently serves on the Didactic Review Working Group and as a Case Reviewer. He also served as lecturer and instructor for wet labs and arthroscopy courses, in conjunction with the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons. Dr. Mineo remains active in education as a member and lecturer at the Highlands Foot and Ankle Institute, a nonprofit focusing on podiatric education and resident advancement.

In his free time, Dr. Mineo enjoys all aspects of the outdoors in Oregon, especially when enjoying them with his wife, daughter, and son.

Personal Statement

It is an honor to be nominated for the Board of Directors of the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. I am passionate about podiatric education, demonstrated by my involvement on ABFAS committees since 2015, as well as lecturer and instructor roles on a national level.

We need to maintain a high standard of excellence across our profession ensuring the highest patient care. The foundation for this excellence should rely on education of students, education and training of residents, and continuing education of our podiatric physicians. I remain actively involved in several organizations that promote front-end education of students, residents, and physicians.

In my opinion, ABFAS serves as the checks and balances for our education efforts. The ABFAS Board is responsible for creating certification exams, guaranteeing that the education provided to residents and physicians is appropriate and that board certified foot and ankle surgeons are maintaining their education. Being elected to the ABFAS Board of Directors would allow me to continue to promote education so that, as a profession, we continue to develop the most qualified foot and ankle surgeons in our pursuit of excellence.
