The Foot & Ankle Store in Waltham, MA is an orthopaedic retail store affiliated with the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, a world-renowned academic medical center, and one of Harvard Medical School’s oldest teaching affiliates.
The mission of the store is to achieve excellence in patient-centered service through providing end-to-end orthopaedic care for patients and their families.
This novel retail store was constructed to meet the needs of our patient population, whom often find it difficult to find the best retail medical products and footwear to meet their unique care and recovery needs. The comprehensive product offerings at the Foot & Ankle retail store, and its close proximity to the Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Center and Physical Therapy Department allows patients direct and convenient access to their orthopaedic supply needs.
The store has been designed to be accessible to customers in wheelchairs and with walking aids. The space is divided between two main areas, one dedicated to medical accessories and another focused on shoes and compression socks.
Physicians from the MGH Orthopaedic Department work together with the Physical Therapy Department to select all of the items that are carried in the store, which address a variety of medical conditions and patient needs. Profits from the Foot & Ankle retail store will be invested back into the Foot & Ankle Center to support their ongoing mission of research and education.Visit the Foot & Ankle store
