Jerry Seinfeld and Dr. Joseph D’Amico

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s ongoing gratitude to Joseph D’Amico, DPM for alleviating his previously intractable heel pain has led to his fourth donation of a substantial amount of money to Dr. D’Amico’s alma mater, the New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM) . Dr. D’Amico is Professor of Orthopedics and Pediatrics and a past chair at NYCPM.

Mr. Seinfeld has directed his generous donations to promote non-surgical approaches to podiatric care via NYCPM’s Richard O. Schuster Memorial Biomechanics Seminar, which Dr. D’Amico initiated and of which he serves as scientific chair. The donation also supports Dr. D’Amico’s work at the Gait Laboratory for Biomechanics Research, as well as foot care for needy New Yorkers. The late Richard O. Schuster, DPM, also a graduate of NYCPM, was a pioneer in the field of sports podiatry.

Dr. Joseph D’Amico has been board certified with the American Board of Podiatric Medicine since 1978.
