    Biography
    Thomas Rambacher, DPM, FACFAS, FAPWCA, is a double board-certified podiatrist offering surgical and nonsurgical treatments for foot and ankle problems at Podiatry Hotline Foot & Ankle., in Mission Viejo, California.

    Dr. Rambacher received his degree in podiatric medicine from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Independence, Ohio -- now the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. His primary podiatry residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation included numerous subspecialty rotations such as endocrinology, rheumatology, emergency medicine, orthopedics, and podo-pediatrics.

    Besides his primary podiatry training, Dr. Rambacher performed multiple surgical rotations in Ohio at Cleveland Veteran Administration Hospital, Kaiser Permanente, The Podiatry Institute, Jewish Hospital Ohio, and Ohio State University. In California, he had high-volume surgical training in the Saddleback Valley Residency Training Program at hospitals in Orange and Los Angeles County.

    Incorporating his extensive training from both the west and east coasts, Dr. Rambacher works closely with his patients to limit their downtime so that they can quickly return to their work and hobbies. To do this, Dr. Rambacher provides the most advanced treatments and seamlessly integrates them into his patients’ active California lifestyles. Patients also receive direct access to Dr. Rambacher via his cell phone, so they can contact him should questions or concerns arise.

    Among his many services, Dr. Rambacher offers surgical and nonsurgical treatments for foot conditions like plantar fasciitis, ingrown toenails, calluses, and bunions; reconstruction with external fixation for extreme deformities; and specialty care like wound care and diabetic amputation prevention.

    Dr. Rambacher is certified by The American Board of Podiatric Surgery and is a Fellow of the American Board of Podatric Surgery. He is also certified by the American Board of Multiple Specialties in Primary Care in Podiatric Medicine and is a Fellow of the American Professional Wound Care Association®.

    When he’s not caring for his patients, Dr. Rambacher enjoys doing mission work and pursuing outdoor adventures like snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking, surfing, wakeboarding, and mountain biking.
