Dr. Mena Shafiek is a Columbus, Ohio native and recently joined the Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central Ohio in 2021. Growing up he was very active in both soccer and basketball.

After obtaining his doctorate degree he completed a 3-year surgical residency program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. There he received extensive training in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery, including trauma, sports medicine, limb salvage, diabetic foot care, and foot and ankle reconstructive surgery.
