Cody Fox, DPM, FACFAS, cares for patients at Lake Regional Foot and Ankle Surgery. He is board-certified in foot and ankle surgery.

Dr. Fox treats patients with various lower-extremity injuries and conditions. His services include care for traumatic deformity, limb salvage and major reconstruction. He also provides care for patients with diabetes who have compromised circulation, and he specializes in wound care and healing.

Dr. Fox played soccer for Drake University, where he completed his undergraduate studies. That experience led him to his current specialty.

“I had an ankle injury, so I learned about podiatry,” he said. “After learning that podiatrists manage traumatic injuries, do reconstructive surgery and work in sports medicine, I realized that’s what I wanted to do.”

Dr. Fox joined Lake Regional in 2011.
