Neil Skea, DPM


I was fortunate to have grown up in a family with strong conservative values. Having been raised in the small town of Edgemont, South Dakota, where a strong common ethical sense is abundant, this has made me part of who I am. These virtues of integrity ingrained in me make me want to do the best for every patient in an honest and caring way.

Chicago, Illinois, was the setting for my formal education and training in podiatric medicine where one of the largest foot clinics in the country existed. This provided a rich clinical learning experience. Post-graduate training at numerous hospitals in various areas of the country gave me a wide spectrum of knowledge in different types of procedures.

I strive to keep abreast on the latest technology and techniques in foot surgery. It is not unusual for a person to call on the phone to inquire if I do this or that technique because of what they have researched online. By frequently attending some of the best conferences on foot surgery in the country and reading medical literature, I am exposed to nearly everything that is happening in the foot surgery arena. I enjoy staying on the cutting edge of this knowledge but also am careful to not implement new procedures too early without first finding the outcomes. 

There is often more than one way to treat a condition. I try to tailor the treatment to the patient’s best interest.

It is my privilege that those who choose me for treatment have put their trust in me.

They deserve the best I can offer them. If the condition is beyond my scope of expertise, I will gladly make the proper referral when necessary.

Numerous professional memberships include: American Podiatric Medical Association as past National Delegate, South Dakota Podiatric Medical Association as past President, Governor-appointed Board of Podiatry Examiners as Past President and Christian Medical and Dental Association.
