Dr. Garrett Child joins podiatry team at GVMH

Golden Valley Memorial Healthcare proudly offers more options for patients with foot and ankle pain. Surgical podiatrist Dr. Garrett Child joins podiatrist Dr. Kenneth Bradshaw to expand services to people who need foot and ankle care.

Dr. Child comes to GVMH from his residency at Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.  His specialties include:

  • Heel spur, hammertoe, bunion and nail surgeries
  • Fusion surgery to join two or more bones together to treat arthritis and other conditions
  • Reconstructive surgery for flat feet and other deformities
  • Fracture repairs
  • Ankle stabilization and tendon/ligament repair

 For Dr. Child, practicing medicine is a family affair. His dad is a doctor, which inspired Dr. Child to pursue medicine. While in medical school, he shadowed a podiatrist and was drawn to the opportunity to help patients with foot pain move more freely.

 The friendly people and outdoor activities on Truman Lake attracted Dr. Child and his family to the Clinton area. He and his wife have three children and plan to raise them in the community.
