Dr. Kinmon moved with his family to the South Florida area in 1987 where he graduated from Zion Lutheran High School. He then went on to attend Florida State University where he graduated cum laude in Biology and Pre Med. Having become interested in Podiatric Surgery along the way, Dr. Kinmon returned to South Florida where he first received a Masters Degree in Biomedical Sciences with a 4.0 grade point average, and continued on to graduate at the top of his class with many honors from Barry University’s School of Podiatric Medicine.

After externships at several hospitals, including Cambridge Hospital of Harvard University in Massachusetts, Dr. Kinmon chose a top level, foot and ankle surgical residency program at Palmetto General Hospital here in South Florida.

Having developed a special interest in peripheral neuropathy and peripheral nerve surgery, Dr. Kinmon was accepted to spend time with A. Lee Dellon, MD, a world-renowned peripheral nerve surgeon and professor of Neurological and Plastic Surgery at John’s Hopkins University in Baltimore on two occasions in the fall of 2002. There Dr. Kinmon was instructed on the most current, ground- breaking trends in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve problems, including diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Kinmon trained in Pediatric foot and ankle surgery as a participant in the Yucatan Crippled Children’s Project. He has also completed further specialized training in foot and ankle arthroscopy, deformity correction with external fixation techniques, and now Total Ankle Replacement. In fact, in January of 2009, Dr. Kinmon implanted the first Inbone total ankle replacement in the South Florida area.

Since the completion of his fellowship training in 2003, Dr. Kinmon has practiced in Palm Beach County. He is a member in good standing with the American, Florida and Palm Beach County Podiatric Medical Associations. He is Board Certified not only in foot surgery, but also is the first and only surgeon in Palm Beach County to be Board Certified in reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. Dr. Kinmon is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and has contributed to the medical literature by publishing an award- winning article on original research in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association. He has authored several additional publications as well, including an article on Pediatric Flat Foot for New Balance shoe company’s health line and has more research underway. Dr. Kinmon supports education, lecturing regularly and instructing residents in surgery at three area residency training programs. He is Director of Residency Training for Bethesda Memorial Hospital’s three year Podiatric Surgical Residency .

As the founding member of Certified Foot and Ankle Specialists, PL, Dr. Kinmon sees patients in their Boca Raton/ Delray Beach office. He is also a member of Orthopedic Surgery Associates, Inc, seeing patients in their Boynton Beach office, and is on staff at multiple area hospitals and surgical centers. He and his partners emphasize the importance of spending time with their patients, educating the patients on their conditions, realizing that a patient’s understanding of the problem is necessary for effective treatment. While Dr. Kinmon is highly trained in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery, he uses surgery as a last resort, always first exhausting every effort to correct the problem with conservative treatment. In the vast majority of cases, surgery is NOT required, and the condition resolves with conservative treatment alone.
