Dr. Dustin C. Huntsman DPM, AACFAS

Primary Locations:

Dr. Huntsman, DPM AACFAS is a Foot & Ankle specialist at Balance Foot & Ankle, focused on giving patients a warm and comprehensive treatment experience.


A lifetime love of sports led Dr. Huntsman to his career in healthcare. After his education at Kent State University’s College of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Huntsman trained in the Mercy Health/Cleveland Clinic Foundation residency under Dr. Mark Hardy. It was at this residency that Dr. Huntsman discovered his passion for complex foot and ankle trauma and limb salvage.


After residency, Dr. Huntsman moved to Columbus, Ohio, working with the Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central Ohio where he treated a wide range of foot and ankle pathology. A desire to give back to Northeast Ohio brought Dr. Huntsman back home and to Balance Foot & Ankle. Drawn by the Balance mission of creating a unique patient experience by blending hospitality and compassion with medicine and surgery, Dr. Huntsman is committed to treating patients with an evidence-based yet individualized approach.


Dr. Huntsman has special interests in resident education and is looking forward to getting to work with and train residents in the program in which he trained. He takes pride in treating each patient like they are a member of his family, working to treat them with the highest level of kindness and care.


To keep feet happy, Dr. Huntsman recommends a healthy and balanced lifestyle with a good diet, focused flexibility and pliability and supportive shoe gear to fit the demand of the activity you enjoy the most.
