After graduating from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Ripepi earned certification from the American Board of Podiatric Surgery and became a fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.

After completing his residency at Cambridge Hospital in conjunction with Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kevin Kane set forth in 1987 to continue the work started by his podiatrist father. At Kane Podiatry, he and Dr. Elizabeth Baracz keep patients comfortably on their feet by treating bunions, diagnosing sprains, and destroying nail fungus. Since foot ailments can strike at any age, they also offer pediatric podiatry services, encouraging parents to cover their babies’ feet with nonrestrictive shoes and to never let their children just fly through the air all day as it will hinder their bodies’ ability to bear weight.
