About Dr. Jeffrey Conforti
I’ve been in practice in Bergen County since 1987 and am board certified by both the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and the American Board of Podiatric Medicine. After being in private practice for three decades, I now work for Hackensack University Medical Center, the lead hospital of Hackensack Meridian Health, where I perform all surgeries and have access to a tremendous amount of resources.
I provide comprehensive foot and ankle care, including the diagnosing and treatment of everything from infections to fractures to bunion surgery, along with other foot deformities and problems. People come to me because they know they will receive the proper care. For example, there are many different ways to surgically correct a bunion, but without using the proper procedure, the chance of it coming back is high. The care I provide is based on each patient’s specific needs and condition.
I entered the field of podiatry because my right leg was paralyzed for two and a half years after I underwent an orthopedic surgical procedure when I was 15 years old. I remember what it was like not being able to walk or run. Because of that experience, I decided to become a healthcare professional to help people. Our office is modern, with all the equipment necessary for proper treatment. That, combined with the resources available to my patients through Hackensack University Medical Center, enables our patients to receive exceptional care. Seeing patients who are happy with their results is my favorite part of the job.
