CA hospital would not grant core podiatry surgery privileges to PMSR 36 month trained podiatrist

    Dear fellow podiatrists,

    I am a board qualified ABFAS, board certified ABPM, DPM with PMSR36 months with RRA certificate from residency training. I am writing to you in the USA podiatry forum to seek any advice, assistance on the matter of getting core podiatry surgery privileges from a California hospital near my private office.

    This hospital requires new podiatrists (post-doc after 2010) to be board certified by ABFAS in order to have any podiatry surgery privileges. Foot surgery certification is required for mostly forefoot surgical privileges, and RRA surgery certification is required for rearfoot surgical privileges.
    So, I was only granted type 1 out of 5 podiatry core privileges since I am ABPM certified.
    Type 1 podiatry privileges included only "superficial " diabetic wound or infection surgery privilege and other non surgical, conservative podiatry privileges.

    My professional practice record is clean, no malpractice suit. I have been really frustrated about this for 2+ years now and stuck. Is there anyone in a similar situation like me?
