Fluent in Spanish, Dr. Hiapo can communicate thoroughly with patients of varying backgrounds and needs. He frequently treats patients with heel pain, ingrown nails, bunions, hammertoes, ulcerations, and all other foot and ankle conditions that lead to pain and discomfort.
Dr. Hiapo began his education at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where he was also an accomplished member of the nationally-ranked men's volleyball team. It is because of his passion for all things sports-related that he chose to become a specialist in foot and ankle sports-related injuries and injury prevention. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Latin American studies before attending Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine in Miami Shores, Florida, for his medical training.
After graduating with his medical degree, he returned home to Arizona for a rigorous residency in podiatric surgery at Southern Arizona VA Health Care System in Tucson, Arizona. There, he was named chief resident and was in charge of 11 of his podiatric surgeon peers.
In addition to a successful three-year residency where he received training alongside multiple nationally recognized specialists, Dr. Hiapo published his own research in his field. He brings this knowledge to Arizona Foot and Ankle Medical Center and keeps up with all other current research and modern treatments.
