About Southeastern Wisconsin's Best Foot, Ankle & Orthopedic Doctors
Our doctors provide exceptional care & value to all patients.
Milwaukee Area Podiatry Clinic History
Advanced Foot and Ankle of Wisconsin was founded in 2006 with the premise to provide excellence in all aspects of foot and ankle care. Drawing from his experience in developing community podiatry offices in Racine and Beloit for the underprivileged, Dr. Michael Kokat ultimately chose to expand into Burlington, WI, which had a need for expert surgical podiatry services.
Dedicated to Providing Effective, Compassionate Treatment for Foot & Ankle Pain
After working with orthopedic surgeons and large podiatry groups in Milwaukee, Dr. Kokat felt he could provide exceptional service and value to his patients as an independent provider. His goal was to put the CARE back into patient care. In 2013, the company expanded into the Brookfield and Milwaukee area. It was clear that his service and dedication to patients was making a direct impact on the communities he served.
Now affiliated with 10 hospitals in southeast Wisconsin, Advanced Foot and Ankle is looking to provide opportunities in other ways. Keeping patient care as top priority, Advanced Foot and Ankle is changing the culture of Podiatry by providing opportunity for like minded podiatrists to join a team of independent providers with the same philosophy.
