MEET DR. PULAPAKA
Dr. Pulapaka graduated from one of the top three residency programs in the United States. Her training has taken her to the Yucatan for advance limb deformity training and a Fellowship in Trauma, Reconstruction, and Limb Deformity from the Ilizarov Institute in Russia. She is the second woman to complete this training in Russia.
She first began treating spider veins in Tallahassee, Florida while working with a plastic surgeon from 1992-1995. Her interest in spider vein treatment carried over as she completes her advance surgical training for the lower extremity.
Dr. Pulapaka is an Associate member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and the only podiatrist who is a member of AAPSM in Volusia County for Sports Medicine.
In 2005 began my own private practice DeLand and Orange City and enjoyed that until 2008, where I decided to focused my care fulltime to the DeLand community.
I’m grateful to have studied with some of the world’s most podiatrists and with a master surgeon for external fixation. I emphasize in surgery, wound care, sports medicine, and nail disorders as well as general preventative podiatry care.
We have hundreds of satisfied patients. Dr. Pulapaka is the highest-rated podiatrist in DeLand. Please read Dr. Pulapaka's curriculum vitae to learn about her background and education. Dr. Pulapaka is also a Co-owner, with her husband Hari Pulapaka, PhD, of one of the Best Independent Restaurants in Central Florida, Cress Restaurant. I am proud to announce that my husband was a nominee for the JAMES BEARD FOUNDATION AWARD for the 2011 Best Chef in the South. Aside from the restaurant, Hari is a full-time Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Stetson University.
