    “I have learned and experienced many things during my residency and fellowship. I owe my extensive knowledge and skills to my past patients and attendings” – Gennady Kolodenker, DPM

    He completed a three year surgical foot and ankle podiatry residency at University Hospital in Newark, NJ (UMDNJ). During residency he was taught by general orthopedic surgeons, podiatrist, and foot and ankle specialized orthopedic doctors who were trained at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. The UMDNJ residency provided Dr. Kolodenker with vast experiences in trauma, limb preservation, reconstructive surgery, and cosmetic foot and ankle surgery.

     During his final year he was named Chief Resident.  The broad experiences of his residency are due to the residency program associations with two highly respected hospitals:

    Hackensack University Medical Center, (granted a HealthGrades® America’s 50 best Hospitals, ranked by US News in the Orthopedics category as America’s Best Hospitals)

    Holy Name Medical Center (HealthGrades® Distinguished Medical Center Awards for Clinical Excellence™ Among the top 5% of Medical Centers in the nation.)

    During residency there was a vast experience in trauma and limb preservation. Working in an urban area like Newark, NJ there was a tremendous need to serve the underprivileged population.

    He finished his four year medical school training at Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in 2007. The school was established in 1912 and became a member of the Rosalind Franklin University family in 2001.
