Meet the Doctor

Lonny Nodelman

Dr. Lonny Nodelman is originally from Ottawa, Canada and moved to the USA after completion of his undergraduate studies at the University of Ottawa. He attained his medical training at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine where he graduated in the top 4 of his class. He underwent residency training at Cambridge Health Alliance, where he was a fellow in surgery at Harvard Medical School. Along the way, he met his beautiful wife, who is originally from the Northern Virginia area and they relocated back to NOVA and call it their home.

After working for a smaller practice in Northern Virginia for 3 years, Dr. Nodelman decided to pursue his dream of opening his own practice, District Foot and Ankle.

Dr. Lonny Nodelman holds privileges at Inova Alexandria Hospital, Inova Fairfax Hospital, and Inova Mount Vernon Hospital. His clinical interests include non-operative care for foot and ankle ailments including plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis and arthritic disorders of the foot and ankle. Surgical management of conditions are considered when non-operative measures are either not applicable or fail to allow his patients to achieve the relief they need.

Having an active lifestyle, Dr. Nodelman does possess a penchant for sports medicine. Keeping athletic goals in sight but implementing an effective treatment protocol is the goal of District Foot and Ankle.

Dr. Nodelman has publications of various topics in the foot and ankle literature including peroneal tendoscopy and rare tumors of the ankle. He remains up to date with the most recent and advanced procedures and makes these technologies available to the residents of Northern Virginia. These include shockwave therapy and various regenerative medicine products including amnion injections.

About Our Office

District Foot and Ankle serves to provide top notch, high quality, personalized foot and ankle care for you and your family. This modern practice was recently opened in 2019 and offers a comfortable, clean, modern medical environment which is easily accessible off the 495 Beltway in Alexandria, Virginia.

The practice is owned by Dr. Lonny Nodelman which is extremely relevant in today’s healthcare environment where many practices are being taken over by local hospital systems or larger corporations. With that being said, you will be treated as a human being, and not a number.

Our goal is to listen and not rush you in and out of the office without a full understanding of your foot/ankle condition. The practice also has access to in-house digital x-ray and ultrasound systems which offers additional convenience and minimizes time-consuming trips to the local radiology facility or hospital.

We take pride in our expertise in handling sports foot and ankle conditions like plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinitis, and stress fractures. We also provide corrective surgeries for foot and ankle deformities like bunions and hammertoes. Limb salvage is also a big part of our practice and we offer advanced grafting techniques for difficult-to-heal ulcers of the foot, ankle and lower leg.
