Our Doctor
San Francisco House Calls Podiatrist
Christopher P. Segler, DPM
Dr. Christopher Segler 
Our foot & ankle surgeon has a unique perspective on foot and ankle injuries.  He is a rock climber, skier, marathon runner, and Ironman triathlete.  Because of this, he undestands when someone has an injury and wants to get better, just to get back to activity.  He understands that the common doctor's notion of "just stop running" or "find another hobby," or "take up Scrabble" are all unacceptable to the athletically minded.  He believes that any active athlete can suffer an injury yet return to sport stronger than ever.
Dr. Segler completed his undergraduate studies in English and Biology, with independent research in Organic Chemistry, at the University of Houston. He went on to attend medical school in San Francisco at the California College of Podiatric Medicine.


During medical school, Dr. Segler became actively involved in medical research and student government. He also became interested in developing innovations in foot and ankle surgery. He designed and patented the Tarsal Joint Distractor—a new surgical instrument to simplify foot and ankle surgical procedures—and went on to found a medical instrument firm, Tarsal Instruments, LLC, to manufacture and distribute his invention. Today, the Tarsal Joint Distractor is used by Orthopaedic and Podiatric Surgeons across the United States, in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. 

After medical school, Dr. Segler went on to attend a 3-year Podiatric Surgical Residency at the University of Utah. His extensive training included trauma, limb salvage and surgical reconstruction, arthroscopic surgery, external fixation, and general podiatric surgical procedures. He has also had heavy training in biomechanics, wound care and inpatient medical management. In his final year of residency, Dr. Segler was selected to serve as Chief Resident where he was responsible for designing and overseeing academic, didactic, and research activities of thirteen podiatric surgical residents and fellows. 

Dr. Segler is extensively involved in medical research. He has currently published over 70 scientific papers and abstracts and has received several awards related to his research including the Award for Excellence in Research from California College of Podiatric Medicine as well as multiple awards from the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and the American Podiatric Medical Association. He participates in numerous scientific conferences and has presented findings from his research at medical conferences in the US, Canada, and New Zealand. In addition to conducting research, he is active in the editorial process and has served as an editor and peer reviewer for multiple scholarly medical journals. He is also a contibuting editor of the Journal of the Podiatric Medical Assciation.  Dr. Segler’s achievements, all before even completing his residency training, have led to him being recognized in four separate editions of Marquis Who’s Who in America: Medicine and Healthcare, Science and Engineering and the 60th Diamond Anniversary editions. 

Dr. Segler has a keen interest in Sports Medicine and has lectured on running injuries and authored a chapter in a Sports Medicine textbook. On a more personal note, he has completed several marathons and is a 4-time Ironman Triathlon finisher with a personal best of 10:59:07. In addition to running, cycling and swimming he enjoys rock climbing, white-water kayaking, paragliding and water skiing. He has climbed El Capitan in Yosemite, attempted a new alpine climbing route in the Alaska Range, completed the swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco, and is a motorcycle road racing endurance champion. He has chosen the Bay Area because it offers the widest range of outdoor activities , and is the most beautiful part of the world.  

He lives and trains in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he can be found riding over Mount Tam, swimming at Aquatic Park, or running along the Great Highway and Marina Green. You may even bump into him high on a wall in Yosemite.
