Claire M Capobianco, DPM, FACFAS, is a native of York, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Lehigh University with a BS in Behavioral Neuroscience and completed her foot and ankle training at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine. She then completed her podiatric surgery residency at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, with extensive exposure to functional foot and ankle reconstruction, revisional surgery, and general foot and ankle surgery.
In her second year of residency, Dr. Capobianco was chosen for a selective AO trauma fellowship in Lugano, Switzerland, with PD Dr. Med. Kaj Klaue. During her training with Sigvard Hansen, MD, she developed a particular interest in Charcot neuroarthropathy and the diabetic foot. As a result, Dr. Capobianco then completed an additional year of fellowship training in diabetic foot and ankle reconstructive surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, under the guidance of Thomas Zgonis, DPM, FACFAS. During her fellowship, she held an academic position as a clinical instructor within the Department of Orthopaedics and was active in clinical research and teaching students and residents. She has also benefited from invaluable international mentorship in Greece, Switzerland, Germany, and the Dominican Republic during her residency and fellowship training. She has authored numerous articles in the field of reconstructive and revisional foot and ankle surgery and functions as a peer reviewer for multiple journals.
Outside of work, Dr. Capobianco and her husband enjoy hiking, jogging, kayaking, cooking, and spending time with their family.
