Dr. John DePalma has been serving patients at Burlington County Foot and Ankle Associates for 25 years.
A proud New Jersey native, Dr. DePalma grew up in nearby Waterford. He graduated from Bishop Eustace Preparatory School in Pennsauken, then enrolled at Albright College in Reading, PA. During his sophomore year, he spent some time with a cousin who was a podiatrist and instantly fell in love with the profession.
After earning his bachelor’s degree in biology, Dr. DePalma attended Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine, graduating in 1991. He completed medical residency training at Cooper Hospital in Camden, followed by a 2-year surgical residency at Graduate Health System, City Avenue, and Parkview Hospitals in Philadelphia.
After completing his residencies, Dr. DePalma returned to New Jersey and founded Burlington County Foot & Ankle Associates in 1995. He is board certified in foot surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.
Dr. DePalma firmly believes that all of his patients deserve the same respect and quality of care he would want his own family to receive. He makes house calls on occasion for homebound patients. He is a former soccer coach, a Knight of Columbus, and is active in his church community—in fact, his fried Oreos are a staple at the annual Pine Barrens Festival in Tabernacle, NJ.
