Gregory Berlet, MD, founding partner and physician at Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center, was recently featured in Columbus CEO, sharing his perspective and insight regarding advances in ankle implant devices.
“Today, we’re seeing improved implant design, materials and—the most important thing—the instrumentation,” says Dr. Gregory Berlet, who performs hundreds of ankle replacement surgeries a year.
Berlet, a pioneer in the evolution of total ankle replacement surgery, has been involved in research and ankle replacement device design for the past decade. He and his fellow physicians at Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center are dedicated to continued research and education to improve the mobility and quality of life of their patients.
“What we’re trying to achieve is to flatten the learning curve and make the technology available more widely,” Berlet says.

Meanwhile, he’s still looking for the next disruptive breakthrough in technology for the foot and ankle. “I want to be at the leading edge, pioneering the new developments,” he says.
