About me

Caitlin S. Zarick, DPM, is a board-qualified reconstructive foot and ankle surgeon and an associate professor in the Department of Plastic Surgery at Georgetown University.

Dr. Zarick received her undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary and her podiatry degree from Temple University. She completed her three-year surgical residency training at Inova Fairfax Hospital. She then remained in the D.C. metropolitan area for her fellowship training at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital focusing on diabetic limb salvage and research.

Her current practice focuses on all aspects of foot and ankle surgery with an emphasis on sports medicine, reconstructive surgery, and management of complex and challenging wounds. She currently sees patients in the Center for Wound Healing at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, and MedStar Health at Mitchellville.

    My son had gotten his feet worked on there. And even though it was done by a different doctor. The work was excellent. Little did I know the work you get is determined by your age, your ability to converse with the doctor. As well as which doctor u choose.

    She didn't look at my foot X-ray when I said I might have a problem with my foot and she just let that problem go and she seem to rush me out

  • Aug 3, 2021

    She listened carefully and asked the right questions. I felt better after her explanations.
