A Nebraska native, Dr. Hinze grew up in North Platte and attended Creighton University for her undergraduate education. She received her Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine, Philadelphia, PA. She then completed three years of post graduate hospital-based residency training in foot and ankle surgery at Crozer-Keystone Health Systems, Delaware County, PA.
Dr. Hinze specializes in foot and ankle surgery, including tendon tears, ankle ligament repair, flat foot reconstruction, and forefoot deformities such as bunions and hammertoes. When possible, she follows a protocol of attempting conservative care first, prior to pursuing surgical correction. However, if conservative care is not the proper course of treatment, or should it fail, her expertise in foot and ankle surgery allows her to pursue the proper surgical treatment.
Dr. Hinze is licensed to practice in the state of Nebraska and is board certified in foot, rear foot reconstruction and ankle surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. She is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and a Diplomat of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. She is also a member of both the American Podiatric Medical Association and Nebraska Podiatric Medical Association.
