Heidee L. Kalmar, DPM

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Heidee L. Kalmar to Premier Foot & Ankle Center.  She brings with her over a decade of experience to the practice.  She is a board certified Podiatric Surgeon who has provided care to patients in the western suburbs of Chicago since 2003.  As part of a busy multi-specialty practice for the past 11 years, Dr. Kalmar worked with patients of all ages, and had the unique privilege of working with children on almost a daily basis, which is one of her passions.  Being part of a practice where she saw hundreds of patients per month, Dr. Kalmar was given the opportunity to encounter, diagnose and treat every foot and ankle pathology.

Dr. Kalmar is a veteran of the United States Army Reserves and served in Augsburg, Germany, during the Desert Storm War, as an operating room technician.  This solidified her keen interest in surgery while inciting her enthusiasm for podiatric medicine.  In 1999, Dr. Kalmar earned her Doctor of Podiatric Medicine from Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine at Rosalind Franklin University School of Medicine and Science.

Upon her graduation from medical school, Dr. Kalmar completed a 3-year surgical residency program at the Jessie Brown VA Medical Center in Chicago, IL.  While in her residency, Dr. Kalmar was trained in foot and ankle surgery, with an emphasis on diabetic limb salvage techniques.

Today, Dr. Kalmar is honored and excited to bring her expertise to Premier Foot & Ankle Center.  She lives in Naperville with her two wonderful children.  She has been an active individual her entire life with a focus on running, weight training and nutrition.  Dr. Kalmar also loves to travel, read and contribute to her community by participating in the many local and international organizations where she donates her time and resources.
