Dr. Tulodzieski joined FAAWC on July 31, 2017, after completing his Mercy Health Foot & Ankle Residency in Cleveland, where he was chief resident. Dr. Tulodzieski was born in Akron and raised in Green in Northeast Ohio. He graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Akron, then graduated magna cum laude with a doctorate from the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. Dr. Tulodzieski came to us through a connection to Dr. Martha Anderson, another of FAAWC’s doctors. Both doctors were trained by the same residency director.
“I was always interested in math and science throughout high school and college,” Dr. Tulodzieski says. “Toward the end of my engineering education I realized that there was more that I desired in my professional career. I wanted to continue my diagnostic skills, but with the satisfaction of working with and helping people. My sister, who was in podiatric medical school at that time, informed me of all that medicine had to offer. I soon followed in her footsteps. I enjoy the long-term relationship with patients, variation between surgery and office visits and the ability to balance work and family.”
Dr. Tulodzieski is trained in all aspects of foot and ankle care, and he is board qualified in foot surgery and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery. His special interests include arthritis treatment, flatfoot surgery and foot and ankle trauma surgery (broken bones, dislocated joints and ankle arthroscopy).
While Dr. Tulodzieski is relatively new to FAAWC, he already knows what makes the practice stand out. “All of the employees are a close-knit family,” he says. “This team-directed approach is great for patients and employees alike. The practice also offers services that no other office supplies, setting it above the rest.”
Dr. Tulodzieski is engaged to Katie, who works as a veterinary technician and serves in the Army National Guard. They have a dog and three cats. He also comes from a large family of five siblings, including a twin brother. He loves cooking; cheering on the Cavs, Indians, Browns and Buckeyes; and spending time with friends and family.
