Dr. Nick Argerakis, known to patients as “Dr. Nick,” earned his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine from New York College of Podiatric Medicine, where he completed his podiatric surgical residency and is now a clinical faculty member. He also completed a fellowship in advanced foot and ankle reconstructive surgery at the prestigious Weil Foot, Ankle and Orthopedic Institute in Chicago. A board-certified foot surgeon and ankle surgeon, Dr. Nick is currently affiliated with the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan.
Dr. Nick always promotes a non-surgical approach to returning to normal activity and improving quality of life. His specialties include treating bunions, hammertoes, flat feet, tendinitis, and previously failed foot surgery.
The biggest inspiration in Dr. Nick’s life was his father. Dr. Nick describes him as an incredibly selfless, honest, hard-working and ethical human being who, because of those traits, lived a full and wonderful life. The passing of his father taught Dr. Nick to enjoy every moment. If you do what you love for work, you’ll never work a day in your life.
