Doctor of Podiatric Medicine

Dr. Nicholas Hugentobler

Dr. Nicholas Hugentobler first knew he wanted to be a doctor when his uncle helped him with shin splints in college. His condition left him unable to run and play sports. Through countless home remedies such as taping, icing, and anti-inflammatory medicine his uncle sprang into action and made him custom orthotics for his shoes. Due to his positive interaction with his podiatrist he found a passion for foot and ankle. He knew he could make a difference in people’s life just like his uncle had done for him. His uncle’s compassion to get him back on his feet helped him presume his career in medicine. He graduated from Des Moines University in 2009 with his doctor of podiatric medicine. He then completed his residency at Detroit Medical Center in 2012. Once completing his surgical training, he and his family settled in Durango CO.

Dr. Hugentobler has helped to develop and adhere to improved compliance and efficiency at multiple facilities. He served on the medical executive committee at Animas Surgical Hospital for many years. In 2017, he earned the prestigious distinction of becoming the chief medical officer of Animas Surgical Hospital in Durango CO.

Dr. Hugentobler is associated with the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, American Podiatric Medical Association, Colorado Podiatric Medical Association, New Mexico Podiatric Medical Association, American Professional Wound Care Association, and the Colorado Foot and Ankle Society. Dr. Hugentobler has branched out his business to Durango (CO), Farmington (NM), and Cortez (CO) to meet the needs of the Four Corners.

Dr. Hugentobler’s specialties range from Bunions and heel pain to Ankle arthroscopy and advances all the way to Total ankles. He is one of the only physicians in the area who is certified to perform Total ankle replacements. With such a broad range of treatment options both Non-Surgical and Surgical, Dr. Hugentobler and his team are the perfect choice for all your foot and ankle needs.

He was trained with Ponsetti cludfoot casting protocols and is well versed in this treatment. He enjoys seeing these small patients progress easily through an otherwise very complicated foot deformity.

Dr Hugentobler also devotes a significant amount of time to healing wounds. He has extensive history with various wound healing methods including advanced wound care utilizing specific grafting options to spread the wound healing process.

When he isn’t practicing podiatry, Dr. Hugentobler enjoys a wide variety of outdoor activities with his wife and 4 children. He enjoys mountain biking, dirt biking, and skiing with his family. The family enjoys living in Durango where all their outdoor needs are accessible year round.
