My name is Miqi “Mimi” Wang, MD, and I am a clinical assistant professor with a focus in foot and ankle in the University of Florida Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine. I earned my medical degree from the University of South Florida with a scholarly concentration in biomedical research. Following medical school, I completed my residency in orthopaedic surgery at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, Vermont, and my fellowship in foot and ankle at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
I became interested in orthopaedic surgery because it allows me to use physics to improve the quality of life of my patients. In particular, the foot and ankle region is highly complex and disorders in this area are extremely debilitating. As a physician, I rely on physics every day to care for patients, advance our knowledge in orthopaedics through research, and educate trainees to help build a solid foundation for the next generation of surgeons.
My clinical interests are in deformity, degeneration, and injuries to the bones, joints, and soft tissue of the foot and ankle. This includes flatfoot, high arches, arthritis, bunions, and fractures. I also have specific training and interest in ankle replacements, revision ankle replacements, and foot and ankle reconstruction using 3D-printed implants.
