Dr. David Helfman
Chief Executive Officer
As Founder and CEO of Extremity Healthcare, Inc. “EHI” (Atlanta, Georgia), Dr. Helfman spent his entire career developing & creating the ideal “SuperGroup Model”, allowing physicians to practice medicine and surgery of the lower extremity, in a model that rewards them for their productivity & outcomes ensuring the best patient experiences.
Dr. Helfman created the most progressive model in the podiatry industry focusing on all aspects of the Lower Extremity. Physicians, who are either shareholders or associates in EHI owned companies, are afforded the opportunity of participating directly or indirectly in all ancillary services provided to 200,000 patients per year. In a traditional single specialty model of the foot & ankle, physicians are limited in the total healthcare of their patients. In the EHI model, physicians are directly involved with other physician partners and ancillaries such as Interventional Cardiology, Anesthesiology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Pain Management as well as other EHI owned ancillaries. In addition, EHI provides access to 7 either owned or managed surgery centers to the podiatric community..
Dr. Helfman is working with his physicians, talented executive team and experienced board of directors to transform the way healthcare is delivered when it comes to diseases of the lower extremity. By utilizing innovation and technology, EHI has become the leader and largest provider of foot & ankle services in the country.
Dr. Helfman plans to transform and consolidate an industry across the country by using proven, tested models of delivery that will elevate the bar on how diseases of the lower extremity are diagnosed and treated.
