Stephen Zimmerman, DPM, is a skilled Podiatrist and Board-Certified Foot Surgeon at the Vascular and Vein Institute of the South in Germantown and Memphis, Tennessee.
As the only Podiatrists in Eastern Arkansas, with Little Rock and Jonesboro as the closest alternatives, Dr. Zimmerman and Dr. Horowitz fulfill an immediate need in this underserved area. Together they have over 30 years of practice.
Dr. Zimmerman completed a Bachelor of Science in Biology and graduated cum laude University of Richmond in Virginia. He received a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, followed by Podiatric Surgical Residency at Baptist Memorial Hospital Germantown, Tennessee.
Dr. Horowitz and Dr. Zimmerman completed a one-year surgical residency at Baptist Hospital in the late 1980s. This gave them excellent training in basic forefoot surgeries, bunions, hammertoes, neuromas, diabetic and at-risk foot care, ingrown nails, heel spurs, wound care, elective corrective surgeries, and more.
In 1991 Dr. Zimmerman started the practice in the professional building at the now-closed Crittenden Hospital, and it grew quickly into a full-time 5-day-a-week practice. Services include basic and general podiatric medical and surgical care, which remains the daily operations' foundation.
Dr. Zimmerman transitioned into full-time practice in AR (giving up his Memphis practice) in the early 2000s and has practiced exclusively in AR ever since.
In 2007 Dr. Horowitz came onboard to help because the Vascular and Vein Institute of the South got so busy. They added the Forrest City office to the practice in 2011, again to fulfill a need of a severely underserved area.
In 2015 after Crittenden Regional closed, Vascular and Vein Institute of the South moved to its current location on Graham Street. The practice is a long-term and well-respected part of the West Memphis medical community.
Dr. Zimmerman warmly welcomes all patients into the Vascular and Vein Institute of the South and looks forward to caring for them.
