Dr. Kinmon is a 1995 cum laude Graduate of Florida State University in Biology and Pre Med.
Having become interested in Podiatry, Dr. Kinmon received a Masters Degree in Biomedical Sciences, and continued on to graduate at the top of his class from Barry University’s School of Podiatric Medicine. After externships at several hospitals, including Cambridge Hospital of Harvard University in Massachusetts, Dr. Kinmon chose a top level, foot and ankle surgical residency program at Palmetto General Hospital here in South Florida.
Dr. Kinmon developed a special interest in peripheral neuropathy and peripheral nerve surgery and spent time with A. Lee Dellon, MD, a world-renowned peripheral nerve surgeon and professor of Neurological and Plastic Surgery at John’s Hopkins University in Baltimore on two occasions in the fall of 2002. There Dr. Kinmon was instructed on the most current, ground- breaking trends in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve problems, including diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
Dr. Kinmon trained in Pediatric foot and ankle surgery as a participant in the Yucatan Crippled Children’s Project. He has also completed further specialized training in foot surgery and ankle arthroscopy, external fixation techniques, and total ankle replacement surgery. Dr. Kinmon is a member of the American, Florida and Palm Beach County Podiatric Medical Associations. He is Board Certified in Foot Surgery and Reconstructive Rear Foot and Ankle Surgery by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.
Dr. Kinmon published an award-winning article on original research in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association. He has authored several additional publications as well, including an article on Pediatric Flat Foot for New Balance shoe company’s health line and has more research underway.
Dr. Kinmon lectures regularly and instructs residents in surgery at three area residency training programs. Dr. Kinmon emphasizes the importance of spending time with his patients, educating them on their conditions, realizing that a patient’s understanding of the problem is necessary for effective treatment.
While Dr. Kinmon uses surgery as a last resort, he always exhausts every effort to correct the problem with conservative treatment. In the vast majority of cases, surgery is not required, and the condition resolves with conservative treatment alone.
