WELCOME TO THE PENSACOLA FOOT & ANKLE CENTER™
The Pensacola Foot & Ankle Center has been providing quality Podiatry care to our patients since 1959. Dr. Ron Eckerlein started the practice, and has since passed the torch on to Dr. Mark Lambert, a native of Pensacola.
Dr. Mark Lambert is a graduate of the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine. After receiving his medical degree, he completed a three-year postgraduate residency training program in medicine and reconstructive surgery of the toes, foot, ankle, and leg in Huntington, West Virginia. Dr. Lambert is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and is Triple Boarded. He is Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. He is actively involved in continuing education programs and enjoys training residents and physicians in advanced surgical techniques.
Dr. Lambert is specially trained in foot and ankle reconstruction, ranging from Charcot reconstruction to revision of failed surgeries. Dr. Lambert has had extensive training in the United States and Europe in microvascular reconstruction and the Ilizarov Technique of leg lengthening and reconstruction. The Ilizarov Technique involves the use of circular external frames for foot, ankle and leg reconstruction. Dr. Lambert is also a member of the ASAMILE, American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, American Podiatric Medical Association, and the Florida Podiatric Medical Association to name a few of his affiliations. Please see his section on the sidebar for further information!
A great deal has changed in the world of medicine since the beginning of this practice, and we have been the fore-front of modern care of the leg, ankle and foot. At the Pensacola Foot & Ankle Center, we believe that the Doctor and patient become a team for treating an individual’s lower extremity. Dr. Mark Lambert spends much of your appointment listening to your concerns and responding with an innovative treatment plan tailored just for you. With the help of his professional staff, they also follow up to make sure that your problems are being addressed and modified according to your response to the therapies selected. Many different approaches can be utilized to address all problems, from minor to severe. We will always try conservative therapy to address a given problem. If your condition requires more advanced treatment, our team is uniquely qualified to deliver the latest, most up to date techniques to help you achieve maximal improvement.
We take a genuine interest in each and every patient, taking time to learn about you and your medical history. The care we provide is truly unique in so many ways. We also want our patients to be informed about podiatric problems and treatments, because informed patients make better decisions about their health and well-being. We offer expertise in the management of all problems of the lower extremity, but specialize in the management of more complex foot and ankle ailments that other physicians in our area are not equipped to handle. That is why we've included an extensive section on this web site covering the full array of topics associated with podiatry and podiatric diagnoses and treatments. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your lower extremity!
The goal of our practice is to work closely with each of our patients and their team of primary care and specialty doctors to ensure the highest quality care. We are committed to providing uncompromising excellence in the diagnosis and treatment of your foot, ankle and lower leg problems. Also, if you refer a friend or loved one to me, I'm going to treat them with the same attention to detail and care that we are using to treat you. "Any friend of yours is a friend of mine." 24 hour emergency care is available. Most major non-HMO insurance plans are accepted.
We also know that convenience in the Pensacola area is important to your selection of a Foot Doctor (Podiatrist). In these web pages you'll find information about Pensacola Foot & Ankle Center's office, including our Pensacola location, maps, directions, hours, insurance policies and appointment scheduling. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have, or to request an appointment. We hope you'll find our practice offers the accessibility and personal commitment you look for from a physician.
Our surgical techniques are constantly being evaluated to incorporate innovations in the field of foot, ankle and leg surgery.

Your feet, although not glamorous, are wonders of natural engineering. There are 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles and over 100 ligaments in each foot. They are all designed to interact with one another to provide you with the ability to walk or run over 115,000 miles in your lifetime. Unfortunately, today's lifestyles often place excessive or unusual demands on your feet. Shoe gear, athletic activity and working conditions often aggravate certain conditions, and make what should be normal, painless activity an ordeal to be faced on a daily basis. The results of these excessive demands mean that four out of five adults will at some time complain of foot health problems. In order to stay mobile, professional care of your feet is a true necessity. Podiatric foot care is especially important for people who suffer from diabetes, vascular disease, heart disease, arthritis, new or old injuries, or long-term untreated conditions of the lower leg, ankle or foot.
"Man's foot is all his own. It is unlike any other foot. It is the most distinctly human part of the whole of his anatomical make-up. It is a human specialization and whether he be proud of it or not, it is his hallmark, and so long as Man has been Man, and so long as he remains Man, it is by his feet he will be known from all other members of the animal kingdom"
