Ebonie Vincent, DPM, MBMS
Star of “My Feet Are Killing Me”
Elected to CPMA Board of Directors

Dr. Ebonie E. Vincent, a board-certified podiatric foot and ankle specialist, was elected to a two-year Director position on the California Podiatric Medical Association (CPMA) board of directors during the organization's Annual House of Delegates held in Anaheim, CA, in June.

Star of TLC's hit reality tv show "My Feet Are Killing Me," which deals with extremely challenging and complex foot and ankle diseases and conditions of desperate patients; and the positive transformative effect that the skilled care provided by podiatric foot and ankle specialists can have on patients' feet and lives.

Known for her expertise and compassionate bedside manner, Dr. Vincent is sought out by patients from around the world.  "My Feet Are Killing Me” is now in its 4th season and has recently been renewed for a 5th.

A native Californian, Dr. Vincent earned her Bachelor of Science in biology from Hampton University, a historic Black research university founded in 1868 in Hampton, Virginia.  She obtained a Masters in Biomedical Science at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Dr. Vincent received her podiatric medical education at Des Moines University College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery in Des Moines, Iowa, and earned her Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree. And, she completed an intense three-year podiatric medicine and surgical residency program at Inspira Health Network in Vineland, New Jersey.  Dr. Vincent has trained under top orthopedic and podiatric physicians in advance treatment for children and adults with upper and lower limb discrepancies, limb deformities, bone defects and infections, joint contractures, and foot deformities at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics in Baltimore, Maryland. She specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques, corrective and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, diabetic limb salvage, pediatric foot conditions, and sports medicine.

Dr. Vincent is passionate about podiatry. She notes that she is frequently asked why she chose podiatry as a career, especially since many deem feet the least desirable body part.  Dr. Vincent says, "It takes a special heart - and at times a strong stomach - to treat problems with the feet.  But to help patients get back on their feet and regain their mobility means that podiatry can literally change peoples' lives for the better."  Dr. Vincent has appeared on numerous television shows, including E!, ABC, NBC, Fox, Dr. Oz, The Doctors, and The Daily Mail, to talk about the importance of foot health and the vital role podiatry plays in health care. 

During her keynote speech at the CPMA House of Delegates, Dr. Vincent quoted poet Maya Angelou in saying, "I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back." Dr. Vincent strongly believes in giving back to the profession she loves and pays it forward with her affinity for mentoring the next generation of podiatric foot and ankle specialists.

A private practitioner with OC (Orange County) Podiatry Foot and Ankle Specialists (with offices in Orange, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Newport Beach, and Long Beach, California), Dr. Vincent enjoys working out and Broadway musicals.  Her favorite daily motto is “Just Do Your Best All the Time."
