Dr. Camasta delivers comprehensive medical and surgical treatment as a licensed podiatric surgeon in the U.S., Canada and Australia.

Dr. Camasta specializes in pediatric and adult reconstructive foot & ankle surgery. He pioneered numerous surgical procedures including primary repair of the ruptured plantar plate in overlapping second hammertoe deformities, reconstruction of the unstable rearfoot & ankle in Charcot patients, tarsal coalition surgery in pediatric patients, and bone-graft repair following failed bunion surgery. Dr. Camasta is well-known for treating difficult bone and soft tissue tumors and infections, and specializes in revison surgery in patients with previously unsuccessful surgical results.

Operation Walk, Inc, a Georgia non-profit organization, was established by Dr. Camasta with the dual mission of providing care to patients in need of lower extremity surgery and educating surgeons around the world. His devotion to under-served pediatric patients has taken him to Vietnam and Nepal for annual medical missions over the past fifteen years. Dr. Camasta uses his surgical expertise to treat complex deformities including neonatal and neglected clubfoot, congenital deformities (polydactyly, macrodactyly, arthrogryphosis, calcaneovalgus), trauma and burn victims, neurological conditions affecting the lower extremity (spina bifida, polio, cerebral palsy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease), infectious diseases (bone infections), and various acquired conditions such as flatfoot, tarsal coalition, cavus foot, arthritis, and juvenile bunions.
