Patrick Derby, DPM, is a podiatric surgeon with an interest in reconstructive surgery, wound care, diabetic limb salvage, and minimally-invasive bunion correction. Dr. Derby earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville followed by his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine degree from the California School of Podiatric Medicine in Oakland, California. He then completed a surgical residency at Henry Ford Macomb Hospital in Clinton Township, Michigan, where he served as chief resident for two years.
