Dr. Drew Sings the National Anthem
Born and raised in the Columbus area, it seems Dr. Belpedio was destined to become a foot and ankle surgeon. "My last name, 'Belpedio,' actually means "beautiful feet" in Italian, so being a physician of the foot and ankle was an appropriate and passionate choice for me. I've seen firsthand how debilitating conditions of the foot and ankle can be, and I take great pride in helping patients recover from such ailments. Helping a patient return to an activity they enjoy, be it work or hobby, is an incredibly satisfying experience. My training allows me to incorporate the latest treatments into patient care, along with humanity and integrity."
Dr. Belpedio focused his graduate course work at The Ohio State University in cancer genetics. He then pursued his podiatric medical training at the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. After receiving his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree, Dr. Belpedio continued his training by completing an intensive podiatric medicine and surgical residency program at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center located in Toledo, Ohio. He joined FAAWC in 2009.
In his spare time, Dr. Belpedio enjoys playing tennis, watching OSU athletics and both vocal and choral singing. He has performed the national anthem at multiple events, including an Ohio State University men's basketball game on Jan. 27, 2015. (See video above.) He's also a good sport, even taking a pie in the face for the Delaware County Diabetes Association. (See video below.)
