Brandão, DPM, FACFAS, a board-certified and fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon specializes in the treatment of foot and ankle disorders ranging from sports injuries, Achilles tendon ruptures, ankle sprains, arthroscopic surgery, ligament and tendon repair, total ankle replacement, Charcot reconstruction, bunions, hammertoes and foot and ankle fracture care. 

“The opening of our new office in Gahanna continues our commitment to ensuring access and convenience to the compassionate, personalized treatment that we offer every patient who comes to us for care,” said OFAC Partner Dr. Mark A. Prissel, DPM, a fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon.

“Opening the Gahanna office gives OFAC patients on the east side of Columbus easier access to great foot and ankle care,” Dr. Brandão said. “We see the growing demand and know opening this office will give new patients the opportunity to see our excellent providers for both surgical and non-surgical care.”
