David J. Inda - Orthopedic Surgeon: Foot & Ankle

Dr. Inda was born and raised in Wisconsin where he stayed for undergraduate education majoring in history at Marquette University. He then worked in Vail, Colorado before enrolling in medical school at Creighton University. He graduated Cume Laude and completed his orthopedic training at the combined Creighton and the University of Nebraska Medical Center program. From there, Dr. Inda earned a fellowship in foot and ankle at the prestigious Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, New York. While there, he was able to round out his education and training working with highly respected surgeons, taking care of patients, and participating in research that led to publication in several different journals and books.

Dr. Inda has been practicing for 15 years having the opportunity to work with patients both young and old, tailoring treatment plans based on the patient’s specific needs while utilizing both non-surgical and surgical interventions. He is also a member of the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society and on the faculty of the combined Creighton University/Nebraska Orthopedic Residency Program.

He enjoys spending time chasing four children, swimming, and practicing yoga.

“Having sustained extremity injuries myself, I know first hand how hard it is to lose function and its effect on you as a whole person. With your input and my expertise, I hope to work together to identify the best way possible to navigate you through the recovery process.”
