Dr. Joseph Wendolowski has opened his podiatry office in Lewes and is accepting new patients.
His newly constructed office is at 17425 Ocean Plaza, Unit 1, next to Dimitra Yoga and across the street from the Villages of Five Points.
Delaware Total Foot and Ankle Center opened September 2019 after Wendolowski moved to Lewes.
With nearly 23 years of experience, he has treated tens of thousands of adults and children, and developed a caring and respected reputation with his patients, coworkers and colleagues.
Wendolowski is now offering his expertise and working to become an integral part of the community in southern Delaware. His mission is to do the best for each patient’s unique situation, and that rarely begins with surgery.
Wendolowski takes a more conservative approach to treatment, and only after all nonsurgical treatment options are exhausted will a surgical approach be pursued. If surgery is the only option, Wendolowski’s years of expertise will guide the decisions needed for the patient’s case. He treats multiple conditions ranging from geriatric foot care to sports injuries, diabetic foot care, custom orthotics and braces, wound care, skin and nail diseases, fractures and sprains, and foot surgery.
He has always been physically active, and he wants to impart a healthy lifestyle to his patients. The goal at his office is to keep patients of all ages active and ambulating. This may mean simply taking care of painful toenails or calluses, recommendation of shoe gear, orthotics or braces, or the latest surgical procedures. His activities include yoga, pickleball, bike riding, weight lifting, scuba diving and anything to do with the ocean and beach. Wendolowski is also a reiki master and a practicing reflexologist.
A graduate of Rutgers University, Wendolowski received his doctorate in podiatric medicine from the Temple School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia. He then completed three years of foot and ankle surgical training at North Philadelphia Health Systems-St. Joseph’s Hospital and Tenet Health Systems-Parkview Hospital in Philadelphia. After completing his residency, he went into private practice in 2001, practicing podiatric medicine and surgery in Red Bank, Freehold and Monroe, N.J., for 18 years in a large group practice.
