The Family Foot and Leg Center, PA (FFLC) started in 2005 by clinical director Dr. Kevin Lam in order to bring to Collier County reconstructive surgery of the foot / ankle. Philosophy and mission is to hire the best that we can to mentor and to ensure the top quality care of the patients entrusted to our care. 

Dr. Kevin Lam’s reputation during the first couple of years in practice has been doing revisional / reconstructive surgical cases which gained him national recognition for his surgical planning and outcomes. He has been invited by numerous companies to lecture and train other physicians. 

Since our success in helping patient, others have tried to copy our mission and motto. Consistency, experience and board certification is what you deserve. We are well known for doing revisional surgeries, but rather be the your first surgeon.  Many foot and ankle doctors have come and gone in this town.
