Dr. Jeremy Walters, DPM
Hampton Roads Foot & Ankle Specialists
Initially pursuing a career as an athletic trainer, Dr. Jeremy Walters found his true calling in podiatry. Board Certified in Foot surgery, Dr. Walters’ abilities range from treating sports medicine and orthopedic injuries and fractures to management of non-surgical conditions. This various skillset, alongside his nurtured passion for helping others, is what motivates Dr. Walters to care for his each of his patients on an individual basis. He understands the most common surgical fear of his patients is usually the pain and/or loss of function from surgery that may arise from a loved ones’ former experience. However, with the evolution of various types of pain management and his specialty for providing arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgeries, Dr. Walters reminds his patients, “this isn’t your grandmother’s bunion surgery.”
Born and raised in North Carolina, Dr. Walters received his undergraduate degree in Health Education at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and pursued his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, PA at Temple University. He worked at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, a major multi-hospital health system, for his Internship and completed his residency at the West Houston Medical Center in Houston, TX, where he served as Chief Resident.
“I love small towns and the people that keep them going. Learning and training in some of the largest medical centers in the country has allowed me to return to an area that I love and provide the kind of cutting-edge care that you’d normally have to drive to a major medical center for.” – Dr. Jeremy Walters, DPM

Arthroscopic and Minimal Invasive Surgery
Cartilage Repair and Regeneration
Breakthroughs in Treatment
“Treatments in the foot and ankle realm are constantly evolving. Incisions are getting smaller and the ability to restore function continues to improve. One of the places that is most evident is with cartilage regeneration. The ability to replace chipped or fractured cartilage to help prevent bone-on-bone disease or end stage arthritis has made significant strides and has been an area I have especially been focused in. There are numerous procedures where even 5-10 years ago patients were on crutches for 6+ weeks and now are walking in a few days to 2 weeks.”
