Dr. Vinai Prakash is a local Washingtonian, from Shoreline. He attended the University of Washington, earning a degree in Biology. From there he went on to podiatry school at Kent State Univ. College of Podiatric Medicine, graduating with honors. He is a recipient of the Who's Who Among Students in Colleges and University award, as well as a member of Pi Delta National Honor Society in acknowledgment for his academic record in podiatry school.


For residency, Dr. Prakash completed a four year program at St. Barnabas Hospital (SBH), a level one trauma institution in Bronx, NY with an emphasis on inpatient and surgical management of lower extremity trauma, wound care, and limb salvage procedures. This is one of the few currently offered four year surgical training programs for podiatry. During his time at SBH, Dr. Prakash also worked under many orthopedic surgeons and had the wonderful training opportunity to augment his podiatric armamentarium by performing most orthopedic surgical procedures from start to finish under the guidance of his orthopedic surgeons. During his last year of training he served as chief resident overseeing 18 residents. On a scholastic level, during his last two years of residency Dr. Prakash was selected as the Resident Liaison for the American Society of Podiatric Surgeons, representing all residents on a national level. He was able to tour around the country and lecture fellow podiatry students. 

Currently Dr. Prakash is board certified with the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and has privileges at UW Medicine - Northwest Hospital and Medical Center, all  Swedish Medical facilities (Edmonds), Evergreen Health, and Overlake hospital. In addition, he sees patients at the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center at UW - Northwest Hospital.


He serves the local community as Clinical Director with Special Olympics of America, lead podiatrist for a low income clinic with Puget Sound Christian Clinic (PSCC), and is on the Education Committee board of the American Society of Podiatric Surgeons.

Orthotics are beneficial in many situations depending on current shoe gear and gait. If orthotics are suggested we at Lake Washington Foot and Ankle Clinic will first check with your insurance for coverage and authorization. 

Our orthotics are made the "old-fashioned," way by utilizing a plaster cast method for capturing your foot in neutral suspension (a correct position for day to day walking). The plaster cast typically has most patients happy and pleased with the device made with minimal adjustments needed, if any.
