President: Dr. Louis J. DeCaro

My name is Louis J. DeCaro. I am a Podiatric Physician who specializes in pediatrics with a special interest in sports medicine and biomechanics for both adults and pediatrics. On July 25th, 2014 I was installed as President of the American College of Foot and Ankle Pediatrics (ACFAP). I am honored and humbled to hold such a prestigious position within such a great profession.

Nick Pagano

Vice President: Dr. Nick Pagano

Dr. Pagano is a board certified surgeon and the co-owner of Barking Dogs Foot and Ankle Care. He grew up in Bucks County, PA, knowing a career in the medical field was always for him. His mom is a nurse so he saw first hand the ability to help people heal and the powers of medicine. Young Dr. Pagano was an avid runner and an All American in Track at LaSalle University in Philadelphia. It was his running that focused his study of medicine toward podiatry.
