Meet the Doctor

Lonny Nodelman

Dr. Lonny Nodelman is the founder/owner and podiatrist at District Foot and Ankle located in Alexandria, Virginia just outside of Washington, DC.

Dr. Nodelman specializes in the treatment of foot and ankle sports medicine like ankle sprains, stress fractures, plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinitis, and other injuries. 

He also treats deformities of the foot and ankle including bunion deformities and hammertoes. 

Limb salvage is also a large part of his practice which means that he treats diabetic foot ulcers, wounds, infections, bone infections and uses advanced techniques like in-office skin grafting.

Dr. Nodelman does have an active lifestyle and a penchant for sports medicine.  Keeping athletic goals in sight but implementing an effective treatment protocol is most important for an active and efficacious recovery. Techniques like shockwave treatment or platelet rich plasma injections that allow for tissue regeneration are available and can help with recovery.

You can expect a thorough medical history, physical examination, imaging and most importantly an understanding of your diagnosis and treatment options. If you are struggling with a foot and ankle issue we are here to help you get back on your feet.

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.
