Our History


The gray skies, rain, snow and cold was the catalyst that started the journey from Long Island, NY to Bradenton

1960s - 70s

Dr. Saul Ladd and Dr. Alan Katz had been partners since 1960, meeting at Civic Hospital in Detroit, MI, where Dr. Katz was a resident podiatric physician.

They built the original office with 6 treatment rooms, operating room and lab at the corner of 18th Street and Cortez Road, just where it is today. Within 3 years 6 more treatment rooms were added and the laboratory was enlarged.

1980s - 90s

In 1989 Cortez Foot and Ankle Specialists had the first podiatric surgical center in the state of Florida. A second story was added to accommodate the surgical suite.

Many members of this talented group have worked at Cortez Foot and Ankle Specialists for over twenty years.

Today

Today we have 7 doctors, all board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. Two O.R. nurses along with fifteen podiatric and x-ray technicians that care for our surgical patients.

We now have 3 locations in Manatee and Sarasota counties serving the community.
