Dr. Fine at the Podiatry Institute in Palm Harbor is one of Florida’s most experienced foot and ankle surgeons. His 30 years in practice and ready access to the outstanding imaging and operating facilities of Florida Hospital North Pinellas are a distinct advantage to his patients. He performs a broad array of reconstructive procedures to restore patients’ mobility, improve their foot and ankle function and reduce the pain brought on by injury, disease or overuse.  


In addition to traditional open surgeries, Dr. Fine specializes in arthroscopic procedures, which require smaller incisions and allow for less pain and a quicker recovery time. This advanced, minimally invasive approach is used for a variety of diagnostic procedures as well as to remove scarred or inflamed tissue, bone spurs and other abnormalities. It can also be used in fusion procedures, wound debridement, and more. Many such procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis, either from our Palm Harbor office or at Florida Hospital North Pinellas.
