Gundersen Tomah welcomes two podiatrists



The Gundersen Tomah Clinic is excited to announce the addition of two podiatrists to their staff.

Peter Hordyk, DPM; and Brent Fuerbringer, DPM, are now caring for patients with foot and ankle concerns at the Gundersen Tomah Clinic.

Peter Hordyk

A native of Oak Creek, Wis., Dr. Hordyk sees patients for a variety of conditions from routine foot care to fracture care and reconstructive surgery.

After completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Dr. Hordyk received his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine degree from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago, Ill. He then traveled back to La Crosse to perform his residency in Podiatric Medicine and Surgical at Gundersen Health System.

"During my undergrad education, I was introduced to Gundersen while participating in their Volunteer Services program," explains Dr. Hordyk. "During my volunteering and my residency, I was impressed by Gundersen's level of care and am excited to now return here to join their staff and provide podiatric care to patients in the Tomah area."

In his free time, Dr. Hordyk enjoys spending time with his wife, Heather, and their daughter. He also finds time to get outdoors and enjoys playing video games.

Brent Fuerbringer

Dr. Fuerbringer is no stranger to this area. He grew up in Eau Claire and received his undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. After receiving his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine from Des Moines University is Des Moines, Iowa, Dr. Fuerbringer also went to Gundersen in La Crosse to perform his residency in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery.

At Gundersen Tomah Clinic, he offers comprehensive foot and ankle care including operative and conservative treatments along with elective, traumatic and reconstructive surgery.

"I think is wonderful that we can bring specialty foot and ankle services that patients previously had to travel to La Crosse to receive and offer them in Tomah," comments Dr. Fuerbringer.

When not working, Dr. Fuerbringer enjoys spending time with his family, working on projects around his home and watching the Green Bay Packers.
