Meet Dr. Melissa Wawrzynek

Dr. Melissa Wawrzynek is an experienced podiatrist in King Of Prussia, Pennsylvania. She has helped thousands of people get back to living life free from foot, ankle, and heel pain.

Dr. Wawrzynek is board-certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and founded Advanced Foot & Ankle Wellness Center in 2013.

Dr. Wawrzynek takes a conservative approach to treatment. She understands that surgery and orthotics may not always be the answer to solving foot pain issues.

Interestingly, Dr. Wawrzynek’s maiden name, Stopyra, is derived from the Polish word for ‘foot’. This happy coincidence feels almost destined, perfectly aligning with her career as a podiatrist. Her last name, Wawrzynek, often prompts patients to ask about her Polish heritage, to which she proudly affirms her roots. The name Stopyra not only reflects her heritage but also adds a personal touch to her commitment to foot and ankle health.

Background and Expertise

Dr. Wawrzynek believes it is important to continue her own research and learning in order to learn new ways to help improve her patients’ quality of life. In addition to being an award-winning podiatrist, she is a certified run coach, as well as a certified functional movement specialist.

As an avid health and fitness enthusiast herself, Dr. Wawrzynek has a special interest in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of biomechanical issues of the foot and lower limb. She understands the competitive nature of sports and the eagerness to resume normal activity.

As always, her goal is to resolve the underlying cause of a problem instead of providing just a temporary fix. Utilizing her extensive experience, knowledge, and technology, Dr. Wawrzynek can typically help you with your foot or ankle pain without a need for surgery.

Her practice employs advanced techniques and technology to help patients of all ages stay active and on their feet. Dr. Wawrzynek offers non-invasive, conservative forms of treatment for foot, ankle, and heel problems.

Advanced Technologies

At Advanced Foot & Ankle Wellness Center, Dr. Wawrzynek employs advanced technologies like 3D Gait Analysis to study walking habits picked up by her patients over a lifetime. Such technologies help identify the underlying cause for problems that crop up, seemingly without reason.

Dr. Wawrzynek uses this analysis to design treatment options that offer a resolution for your foot care concerns. Dr. Wawrzynek and our Advanced Foot & Ankle Wellness Center team look forward to helping you enjoy an active and pain-free lifestyle.

Outside the office, you can find Dr. Wawrzynek at the gym, spending time with her family, participating in local 5k races, or vacationing at Disney with her family.
