Dr. Paul Maloof, board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, a foot and ankle doctor from Bergen County, New Jersey, joined Tidewater Orthopaedics in 2013. His choice to become an orthopaedic surgeon was inspired by a pediatrician, and his favorite part of his work is being able to change the quality of life of his patients in a very meaningful way.
Dr. Maloof began his path to orthopaedic surgery at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, where he completed his undergraduate work. After spending three years in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Dr. Maloof attended the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey for his medical doctorate and residency. While there, he served as administrative chief resident in one of the East Coast's busiest Level I trauma centers.
Dr. Maloof then completed his fellowship training in foot and ankle surgery at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
Dr. Maloof brings many advanced treatments to Tidewater Orthopaedics as one of the only full-time foot and ankle orthopedic surgeons in the region specializing in complex and comprehensive foot and ankle care, both surgical and nonsurgical. He aims to treat his patients in the most conservative manner, reserving surgery only for cases when nonsurgical management is no longer an option.
Foot and ankle doctor Paul B. Maloof, M.D., sees patients in Hampton, VA, and Williamsburg, VA. Dr. Maloof, performs foot and ankle procedures like total ankle replacement, ankle arthroscopy, bunion correction, deformity correction, flatfoot reconstruction, foot drop, traumatic injuries, Achilles tendon repair, and hammertoe correction.
