About Stephen A. Brigido

Philosophy of care

I will offer comprehensive care of the foot and ankle by integrating conservative care, rehabilitation, and surgery of the foot, ankle, and leg. My team – including my nurse, surgical fellow and staff – will complement the care provided to all patients.

Why I entered medicine

The diversity of patients needing help was the main reason as to why I chose foot and ankle surgery as my path. Pediatrics, athletes, people with diabetes and patients who are suffering or have suffered from a traumatic injury all benefit from a foot and ankle specialist. I find this diversity rewarding on many levels, as each day provides new challenges.

Community involvement

I am involved with St. Michael The Archangel School and the community organization, First Tee of the Lehigh Valley and Berks.

Personal interests

Outside of work, I enjoy all sports.

Professionally, I enjoy teaching and researching tissue scaffolds, biomaterials and cell therapy
