Mansfield Orthopaedics Welcomes Podiatrist Ciara Hollister, DPM
Copley Hospital is pleased to welcome Ciara Hollister, DPM to its medical staff. Dr. Hollister, a Podiatry Specialist, joins the orthopedic team at Mansfield Orthopaedics, working closely with foot and ankle specialist, Bryan Monier, MD. “The specialized care Dr. Hollister provides will complement our current foot and ankle program,” states orthopedic surgeon and Chief of Orthopedics John Macy, MD. “With the addition of Dr. Hollister, we are able to enhance our foot care services to meet the needs of our communities. We are delighted to welcome Dr. Hollister as part of our team,” Dr. Macy continued.
Dr. Hollister attended Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire and earned her Bachelor of Arts in Biology/Biotechnology at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts. She graduated with honors from Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago, Illinois and completed her podiatric medicine and surgery residency at Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Dr. Hollister brings more than 8 years of podiatry experience to Copley, coming most recently from Central Vermont Medical Center.
Podiatrists specialize in caring for feet. They care for painful foot irritations, including corns, bunions, hammertoes, and nail disorders. Additionally, they treat conditions due to chronic diseases and injuries as well as complications from ongoing health issues.
Dr. Hollister offers a wide range of foot care services, from routine foot care to treatment of more serious conditions, including wound care and diabetic foot care. “I know how important it is for rural communities to have easy access to health care, especially for specialty care. Good foot health, regardless of age and level of activity, is important to every person’s well-being. My philosophy is to provide the best care and treatment to get my patients back to doing activities they enjoy. I achieve this through a collaborative team approach, working closely with each patient, knowing their preferences and expectations, and their providers,” said Dr. Hollister.
For years, Copley has been providing foot care through its Rehabilitation Services, performing approximately 1,300 foot care procedures annually. Therapists Peter Kramer and Craig Luce perform procedures such as toenail care, removal of corns and calluses, and treating ingrown toenails. Services were expanded with the hiring of foot and ankle specialists Saul Trevino, MD (who has since retired) followed by Bryan Monier, MD to the Mansfield Orthopaedics practice. “Foot health is an essential service. Dr. Hollister is an experienced provider and brings a level of skill to Copley’s foot care program that will benefit our patients. We’re happy she chose to be part of our dedicated team and help our patient’s better care for their feet,” said Dr. Macy.
Dr. Hollister will see patients at Copley Hospital’s Rehabilitation clinic located at 528 Washington Highway, beginning November 2. To schedule an appointment call Mansfield Orthopaedics at 802-888-8405, a physician referral is only necessary if your insurance requires one.
