Ammar Al Rubaiay, D.P.M., A.A.C.F.A.S.

.

Upon graduating from The New York College of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Ammar completed his residency training at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital, with extensive training in trauma, arthroscopic surgery, as well as forefoot and rearfoot reconstruction surgery. He also gained additional experience through multiple courses including added training in Charcot foot reconstruction and wound care. Dr. Ammar was given the honor of being the Chief Resident the final year of his residency training.

Dr. Ammar completed his undergraduate training at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, where he was a member of the varsity soccer team for four years. He received multiple awards and graduated with a degree in biology. He then completed his medical education at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine where he was the recipient of multiple academic awards including being named the highest scoring student on the Capstone examination. Following that he was accepted into the prestigious Long Island Jewish/ North Shore University Hospital Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Program, where he completed his residency training. In addition to having the honor of being named Chief Resident during his final year of training, he also was honored by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine for having the highest score in the country on the national in-training examinations. He was also honored at the Hospital for Special Surgery for having the top research presentation at the annual limb salvage symposium.

Dr. Ammar’s background as an athlete has helped him to understand exactly what it feels like to be in the patient’s shoes and gives him a unique sense of understanding to the practice of Podiatry. He is a compassionate doctor who always takes the patient’s goals and lifestyle into account before formulating the best treatment for that specific patient. He uses his advanced surgical as well as biomechanical and wound care training to provide the patients with a wide array of treatment options, each tailored to the patient’s specific needs.

Dr. Ammar is a Clinical instructor at the Long Island Jewish/ North Shore University Hospital Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency Program.
