About Me

I'm Robert Pearson, DPM, a Phelps Health podiatrist who sees patients in Rolla and Salem, Missouri. I have 20-plus years of experience in the field of podiatric medicine and surgery.

I graduated from Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago, Illinois.

I'm highly skilled in the surgical repair of foot fractures, hammertoes, heel spurs and the repair of bunions. I also am highly experienced with the care of soft-tissue conditions, such as the surgical repair of ruptured tendons, neuroma decompressions, plantar warts and entrapped nerves.

I am trained and certified in Graston technique manipulation therapy and Lapliplasty bunion correction.

An advanced service that I offer is platelet-rich plasma injections, which can treat a variety of soft-tissue injuries. In addition, I am an instructor for arthrosurface surgical implants.

I also offer telehealth visits, which allow patients to visit with me remotely using a smartphone, tablet or computer with an internet connection and audio-video capabilities.
