Welcome to the website of Dr. Paul J. Somers Jr., DPM.

Dr. Paul Somers Jr. specializes in all aspects of podiatric medicine. Your feet are an essential part of the body and are many times overlooked. When your feet hurt they can impact your overall health and well-being. When symptoms and ailments are left untreated they can lead to more serious complications.

Podiatry is the medical and surgical specialty that concentrates on the care of your feet. As a trained professional and board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Somers, along with his entire staff, is devoted to providing patients with real results in alleviating foot problems. These might include bunions, hammertoes, warts, ingrown nails, neuromas, heel spurs, fractures (and other sports-related injuries) which are easily treated by medical, surgical and orthotic therapies. Our office is equipped to perform laser and shockwave treatments as well as minor surgeries. Dr. Somers also provides surgery at many of the local hospitals including Baptist, St. Thomas, Centennial, Skyline and Horizon Medical Center.

Dr. Somers has been in private practice for over thirty years. He is recognized as a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. He has received additional certification in laser surgery and endoscopic surgery of the heel.

He was the first podiatrist in the greater Tennessee area to utilize a laser in performing foot surgery and has performed several thousand laser procedures over the past 30 years. These procedures are performed in the office as well as in a hospital setting on an out-patient basis.

Dr. Somers has recently been appointed by Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen to a second consecutive three-year term on the Board of Podiatric Medical Examiners.

Dr. Somers is Chief of the Departments of Podiatry at Centennial Surgery Center. He is on staff at Baptist Hospital, St. Thomas Hospital, Centennial Medical Center, Three Rivers Hospital and Nashville Surgery Center. Dr. Somers is a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association, the Tennessee Podiatric Medical Association and a member of the board of the Healing Arts for the state of Tennessee. He is past President of the Nashville Podiatric Medical Association.
