Bio

Dr. Ichikawa has practiced podiatry in the Seattle area for 20 years and been with UW Medicine for the last 10. He treats problems of the foot and ankle: bunion deformity, flatfoot deformity, plantar fasciitis/tendinitis, hammertoe, neuroma, diabetic feet and sports injuries.


He has special expertise in foot surgery and in the prescription of custom foot orthoses. He strives for good patient communication, which includes explaining the diagnosis and outlining a treatment plan with conservative and surgical treatment options.

Patient Care Philosophy

"I believe in good doctor-patient communication. My goal is to thoroughly explain the diagnosis and treatment options on the first visit. I am conservative in treatment choices, and board-certified in foot surgery."

Research Interests

Modifications of transverse base wedge osteotomies in bunionectomy surgeries; microsurgical ligation of nerve endings in recurrent neuromas.
