Jeffrey Weber, DPM, is a fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon who takes a patient-centered, evidence-based approach to health care. He is proud to provide a wide range of podiatry services to patients at Birch Tree Foot and Ankle in Traverse City and Manistee, Michigan.
A native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Dr. Weber attended Hope College in Holland, Michigan, where he had a successful collegiate running career and graduated with a degree in biology and a minor in Spanish. During his time at Hope College, he was an All American 1500-meter runner and met his wife, a sprinter and hurdler for the women’s team. They have one daughter and a dog named Lilly, who loves running with them.
After graduating from podiatric medical school in Iowa, Dr. Weber completed a three-year surgical residency focused on all aspects of foot and ankle surgery at The Detroit Medical Center and Wayne State University. After his residency, Dr. Weber was invited to pursue an additional year of advanced training at one of the most well-respected foot and ankle fellowships in the country at The Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center in Columbus, Ohio.
During his fellowship, Dr. Weber gained advanced skills in foot and ankle reconstructive surgery with a focus on total ankle replacement surgery, sports medicine injuries and arthroscopy, trauma surgery, and diabetic limb deformity correction. Currently, Dr. Weber is the only podiatric surgeon in Northern Michigan to have completed a one-year fellowship approved by The American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.
Dr. Weber’s medical education and training set him apart from other foot and ankle specialists in Northern Michigan. Dr. Weber acquired Birch Tree Foot and Ankle Specialists from Dr. Randy Hartman and Dr. Daniel Lathrop in July of 2019 after practicing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for several years.
Dr. Weber still enjoys running at a competitive level and participates in races across the country several times a year. His other hobbies include golfing, boating, camping, kayaking, downhill skiing, and pheasant hunting.
“My fellowship year in Columbus was my favorite year in training (even though I was surrounded by Ohio state fans)! I participated in a very high volume and wide variety of both complex and routine surgical procedures with some of the most well-respected surgeons in the country. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to be selected for such a competitive position that I believe has been detrimental in developing a high level of knowledge and skill set in the field of foot and ankle surgery.”
