Dr. Todd Irwin is an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Michigan Health System. After growing up in southeastern Michigan, he attended the University of Michigan for his undergraduate studies, followed by Wayne State University for medical school where he earned Alpha Omega Alpha honors. He then completed his internship and residency in orthopaedic surgery at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. During his residency he was drawn to the complexity of the foot and ankle which led him to pursue a fellowship at the OrthoCarolina Foot and Ankle Institute in Charlotte, NC.
After the completion of his fellowship he joined a private practice in the western suburbs of Chicago. In September of 2010 he decided to return to academic medicine and joined the faculty at the University of Michigan to become more involved with the education of residents and contribute to the evolving research being done in orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery. His research interests include ankle arthritis, cavovarus foot correction, ankle instability, and ankle fracture anatomy and treatment. His recent work has been published in the leading orthopaedic foot and ankle journal, Foot and Ankle International. His clinical interests include complex hindfoot reconstruction, deformity correction, and sports-related foot and ankle disorders. This includes the treatment of end-stage ankle arthritis with the latest technologically advanced techniques, including total ankle replacement.
