Our Physicians

Adam T. Short, M.D.

Foot & Ankle Surgery Specialist


Dr. Short was drawn to the specialty of foot and ankle surgery because the cases are so varied and complex. His greatest satisfaction is being able to go beyond pain management and correct the core issue, which allows his patients to live fuller lives. Dr. Short has a special interest in end-stage ankle arthritis, Achilles tendon disorders, and sports-related injuries. He completed his fellowship at Duke, where they perform the most total ankle replacements in the country. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, craft beer, and hanging out with his wife Jenna and their English bulldog Julep.
