"Our mission is simple...To serve our community as a center of excellence for patients with disorders of the foot and ankle in a caring environment where every AOA patient is treated like family."
When Doctor Adam Perler completed residency training in 2003, he made it his goal to create a practice that embraced his own values in healthcare, including compassion, continuity, excellence and individualized care.
This of course requires a strong foundation in education, the constant pursuit of advanced surgical training and experience, and he has had the opportunity to have been trained by some of the best surgeons in the world. Doctor Perler never stops learning, and expanded his skills through continuing education by both lecturing to and learning from his peers, and is actively involved in “pushing the envelope” by his participation in new product development.
He has also actively volunteered in Baja California, Mainland Mexico, and Peru as well as in his own community, by managing many complicated limb deformities, trauma, and the reconstruction of congenital deformities of both adult and pediatric patients. He has been an advocate for raising awareness and funding to benefit childhood cancer initiatives in both Indiana and Florida.
Doctor Perler feels that “many individuals with the greatest need have the least access to quality care. By accepting the challenge, responsibility and risk of helping these individuals, we all benefit. We learn, we gain special skills, and we help humankind, which is the greatest reward of all”.

Joey Keller, who passed away from childhood cancer in 2012 at the age of 9, continues to inspire me to continue to seek ways of giving back and never giving up. He became my cycling coach the year I attempted to qualify for master’s nationals and I always strive to honor Coach Joey’s legacy of giving.
