John D. Goodner D.P.M. is a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon. He specializes in treating foot, ankle, and leg injuries in children, teenagers, and adults. He is trained to perform the latest minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgical techniques.
Growing up locally in Broward County, he was a two-sport varsity letterman in baseball & football at St. Thomas Aquinas High School where he received Wendy’s High School Heisman and Miami Herald Silver Knight Nominations as a student-athlete. Knowing that his calling was a career in sports medicine, he turned down numerous offers to play collegiate football and baseball. He accepted a full academic scholarship to the University of Florida.
After earning his doctorate and his surgical training in foot and ankle surgery, he returned to the community where he grew up and is now a team physician for his alma mater, St. Thomas Aquinas. Patients are keen to point out Dr. Goodner’s experience as an athlete himself gives him specific insight into sports injuries and a unique approach to patient care.
