While the acronym, JAWS, may conjure images in the mind’s frightful eye of that infamous shark invading the waters of a quiet beach town, Jaws Podiatry is a family-run, 5-star rated, cutting edge cosmetic foot institute led by South Florida’s highly acclaimed founder of the the MIFAS Institute (Minimally Invasive and Aesthetic Foot And Ankle Surgery) and Doctor of Podiatry Medicine, Dr. Abraham Wagner, DPM.
Situated in Hollywood, Florida, he, his wife Jennifer (a Physician Assistant since 2001), and his growing staff of caring professionals specialize in cutting-edge, minimally-invasive foot and ankle surgical treatments for patients throughout all of the United States and beyond.
The difference between our practice and others starts the second you call our office. From our concierge to our staff and team of podiatrists, we make everything as convenient and stress-free as possible, delivering a premium, luxury-type experience for all of our patients, that is minimally-invasive, and performed with local anesthesia and without pins or screws, so patients can walk immediately after surgery.

Being proactive and wearing bunion pads, silicone shields and wide unfashionable shoes can forestall bunion removal surgery, but it may eventually become necessary as the damage done to the joints and cartilage over time becomes progressive as does the degree of pain.LEARN MORE
Similar to nip and tuck tummy procedures, the idea is to remove fatty tissue and thin the toe out to to appear more aesthetically pleasing. Side tucks involve a slenderizing effect on the sides of the foot, which is accomplished by the removal of fatty tissue. Both are considered minimal invasive, soft tissue surgical procedures.LEARN MORE
Corns are compressed bits of dead skin, that are resistant to many topical treatments, which is why many patients choose corn removal surgery as a way to treat them. These very unattractive bumps on the sides of the foot are painful due to redness and inflammation, but often show no symptoms for many years. Over time, the cartilage erodes, the corn begins to grow and pain becomes more frequent. Aesthetically, corns be upsetting, because favorite shoes cannot be worn.LEARN MORE
Long toes can cause dull, mild or severe pain at the tip of the toe. Toe-straightening surgery is far more than aesthetic in purpose, as crooked or angular toes can cause discomfort and pain while walking or wearing certain shoes. Toe straightening surgery corrects misaligned toes and restores a natural look. Toe lengthening and toe shortening surgery can render feet more attractive by correcting the metatarsal bone. These procedures align the bones so they are more in line with the other toes.LEARN MORE

Hammertoes are unsightly deformities that occur from muscle and ligament imbalances and they afflict the joints of the lesser toes. They usually worsen if not treated. High heels are mostly responsible because of the tremendous pressure walking on them creates for the toes. A secondary condition involving the formation of painful, ugly bursal sacs at the affected joints often occurs. While conservative treatment can work for a while, it is usually only minimally successful.LEARN MORE

My experience with Dr. Wagner and his staff was amazing! I felt comfortable through the whole procedure and Dr. Wagner definitely made me feel empowered on making the right decision. I have seen over 5 podiatrists in my lifetime and he was the first to educate me on the process and give me an understanding of why my foot is having these issues. I think when I look back I felt like I was a number to other doctors before I met Dr. Wagner. His passion for his patients is incredible and you can tell he loves what he does
I had minimally invasive bunion surgery at JAWS and I can’t praise Dr. Wagner and his staff enough for how AWESOME they are! I am so happy with the results of my surgery and how well I’ve recovered. I’m 6 weeks post op and I’m back to running, i have no discomfort and my foot looks so pretty. I wanted to have my bunion corrected for so long but I was afraid of the traditional bunion correction method. I didn’t know that minimally invasive was an option until I met Dr. Wagner. It’s amazing, I actually walked out of surgery!! I was very nervous but the caring, compassionate staff made me feel at ease. I am so grateful, I highly recommend them and I thank them SO MUCH!
Dr. Wagner is not a typical doctor. He is caring, talented and very creative! He has a huge sense of humor and most importantly, he knows what he is doing. I had a toe shortening performed by Dr. Wagner and his team and I am so happy with the results. His whole crew will make you feel safe and comfortable with all the steps of your journey from beginning to end. His team is friendly and very professional. Thank you Jaws podiatry!

No one wants to undergo surgery. No one likes the idea of scalpels and anesthesia and risk and recovery time. Sometimes, however, when non-surgical treatments have not effectively addressed an issue, surgery can be the only option to relieve pain, correct damage or deformities, or restore mobility. But that doesn’t mean that you won’t or […]LEARN MORE
