Press Release – Dr. Myles Samotin is proud to announce that July, 2022 will mark 25 years since he opened his first private orthopaedic practice in Naples, Fla. Since 1997, Dr. Samotin, a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with a sub-specialty in foot and ankle, has performed over 8,000 surgeries in Florida.

“25 years of practicing orthopaedics in Naples is such a wonderful accomplishment,” said Dr. Samotin. “I’m thankful for all of my patients who have trusted Samotin Orthopaedics with their treatment and care for a quarter of a century.”

Dr. Samotin founded Samotin Orthopaedics with the goal to provide the highest quality of non-surgical and surgical orthopaedic care to local residents in Florida. Due to the success of the Naples practice, Samotin Orthopaedics has since expanded to Orlando and Sarasota, Fla.

“I truly care for my patients, and I want to help restore their lives so they can continue to maintain active lifestyles without experiencing foot, ankle or joint pain. In order to do this, we devote a significant amount of time to understanding the issue, addressing any underlying causes for pain and correcting the condition,” said Dr. Samotin. “At Samotin Orthopaedics, we strive to offer peace-of-mind to patients by educating them on their particular needs, providing them with realistic expectations for recovery and ensuring they understand the role they also play in their recovery. We don’t just perform surgery and send patients along on their way — we work closely with them before and after treatment or surgery to ensure their recovery stays on track.”

After graduating from the Hospital for Joint Diseases – Orthopaedic Institute, Dr. Samotin became a Fellow in Foot and Ankle Surgery in 1997.
