About Dr. Andrew Carver
Over the course of his career, Dr. Andrew Carver has developed a reputation for innovative podiatric care. Through Indiana-based Biomet Corporation, he developed and introduced the Weil Carver Hammertoe Implant, a surgical device that corrects the deformity from inside the toe. After six to 12 weeks, the implant dissolves into sugar and water, which is then absorbed by the body. Since Dr. Andrew Carver created this device, countless physicians have used it in surgery.

He has also served as chief of the Department of Orthopedics' Section of Podiatry at Kaiser Hospital and in the same role at Marshall Hale Hospital in San Francisco.
Before beginning his career in medicine, Dr. Andrew Carver completed his podiatric surgery and sports medicine residency at Kaiser Hospital and at nearby Valley West Medical Center. In addition, he has completed a residency in podiatric and orthopedic surgery at Parkview Hospital in Philadelphia. A diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, the accomplished physician currently practices in the Washington, DC, area.
