Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgeon. Specializing in Ankle Joint Replacement, Trauma, Arthroscopy and Adult ankle & foot deformities. Past President American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons. CEO of Bones Pro Bono, Vietnam Project.

Dr. Weinraub grew up in Los Angeles and earned a degree in Molecular Biology from California State University Northridge. Prior to Podiatric Medical School he spent two years as a professional Ski Patrolman at Mammoth Mountain. It was there that he was influenced by a local general Orthopaedic surgeon to become a Foot & Ankle Surgeon.

He completed a three-year Podiatric surgical residency program at Fairfax Hospital/Georgetown University Hospital in Northern Virginia. This included a 6-month training program in reconstructive lower extremity plastic surgery.

Once in practice he became involved with research and education, finally becoming President of the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons. Today he is on the academic staff at two Podiatric medical colleges and is the CEO of a philanthropic surgical organization known as Bones Pro Bono, a group of Orthopaedic & Podiatric surgeons donating our time and skills to the Danang Orthopaedic Hospital in Vietnam.

In his off hours Dr. Weinraub enjoys cooking (“Dr. G Cooks” on You Tube), traveling, skiing, swimming, and spending time with his Golden Retriever, Scout.
