Dr. Kordai I. DeCoteau has joined the Heart Center of the Oranges, a multi-specialty
practice for problems of the foot and ankle. For more than a decade, Dr.
DeCoteau has run her own podiatry office in New York, treating a variety
of foot conditions using cutting-edge techniques to help relieve foot,
heel, and ankle pain, as well as to improve overall function.
Following her graduation from the University of Miami, FL, in 1997 (a school
she attended on full academic scholarship), Dr. DeCoteau attended the
New York College of Podiatric Medicine. She graduated in 2001, completed
her surgical residency program at St. Barnabas Hospital in Bronx, NY,
and then became Board Certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle
Surgeons. Continuing education plays a major role in Dr. DeCoteau’s
treatment philosophy; as part of her ongoing commitment to providing the
best possible podiatry care to her patients, she works tirelessly to stay
up-to-date on promising new procedures such as Keryflex for ugly nails
and Topaz with platelet rich plasma injections for chronic foot pain.
Whenever possible, Dr. DeCoteau uses “cosmetic incisions”
during surgical procedures, leaving her patients’ feet looking every
bit as great as they feel.
She is fluent in Spanish and has contributed to Especialito, a Spanish
newspaper that serves the Hispanic communities throughout New York City’s
five boroughs, as well as parts of New Jersey. Dr. DeCoteau is active
in her community, regularly attending services at The Abyssinian Baptist
Church, where she serves on the Health Ministry. She’s also a proud
member of The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc, an international organization
dedicated to the lifelong personal and professional development of its
members who in turn advocate for social change and global equality.
