Dr. Mehera Hormuz, Podiatrist

Dr. Mehera Hormuz is from Southern California, where she attended the University of California, Irvine, earning her Bachelors in Biological Sciences. In college, she volunteered with the Medical Initiative against Homelessness (MIAH) to run mobile clinics throughout Orange County and provide medical care to the unhoused population.

 

She completed an internship with Hoag Hospital in Irvine and Newport Beach and received an Exemplary Service Award CCE Intern Telemetry. Dr. Hormuz also participated in research at Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and was published as a co-author.

 

She sustained several ankle injuries as an athlete in high school and college. Working with her own Podiatrist to rehab her ankle sparked her interest in the field, especially in sports medicine, forefoot and rearfoot trauma, and reconstructive surgery.

 

Dr. Hormuz attended medical training in Arizona at Midwestern University Arizona College of Podiatric Medicine, where she received her Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine. During Podiatry school, she continued to volunteer with several homeless clinics to provide podiatric medical care to the homeless population in Maricopa County, Arizona. Dr. Hormuz also served as the chapter president for the American Association of Women Podiatrists (AAWP).

 

In her free time, she volunteered with the Special Olympics and multiple marathons to provide podiatric screenings and medical aid to competing marathon runners.

 

Dr. Hormuz completed her residency at Tucson Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona, serving on the academic committee and panel for resident admissions. During residency, she published a paper and had a poster presented at ACFAS and The National with the APMA. Dr. Hormuz finished a mini-fellowship with Bako Diagnostics in Podiatric Dermatopathology in Alpharetta, Georgia. She is board-qualified in Foot surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and is currently completing a fellowship in Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery.

 

When she isn’t helping patients get back on their feet, Dr. Hormuz enjoys spending time with her family, biking, playing piano, doing yoga, and gardening.
