About Derek McCammon , DPM, FACFAS

Dr. McCammon is a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon/podiatrist who has been in practice since 1999. He enjoys getting to know his patients and relishes the fact that “everybody is different and cannot be treated the same.” He is a very conservative surgeon who can be trusted to treat his patients as if they were family members or friends. He is a past-president of the Oregon Podiatric Medical Association and is the current Clinical Director (Fit Feet) for Special Olympics Oregon.

As a podiatrist, Dr. McCammon specializes in treating the foot and ankle and he sees young children to adults.  He likes treating sports injuries to the foot and ankle, which often consist of strains, sprains and fractures. He also treats common conditions such as, arthritis of the foot and ankle, children with flat feet and ingrown toenails.  While many of these conditions do not need surgical intervention, Dr. McCammon is also a specialist in reconstructive foot and ankle surgeries and correcting genetic or acquired deformities such as hammertoes and bunions. He is a specialist in using the newest techniques, including Lapifuse, to perform 3D bunion corrections that helps patients bear weight quicker after surgery and achieve a more optimal long-term result.

Dr. McCammon’s favorite thing about being a podiatrist is that he can help people walk and move better, without pain so that they can maintain a healthy lifestyle – whether that’s running a marathon or going to the grocery store without pain.

Dr. McCammon is a local and grew up in Bend, Oregon before attending Sam Barlow High School in Gresham.  There, he met and married his High School sweatheart.  They raised their family in the Gresham community and today he enjoys treating many of his former HS classmates and their families.

He has been an avid outdoor enthusiast for the all of his life. He started snowboarding in 1984 when the sport was in its infancy, and he even raced. He is a lifelong competitive cyclist. Dr. McCammon enjoys traveling, hiking and being with his family. He and his wife, Heidi, have three children who are the loves of their life.

The greeting at the front was more nonchalant but soon as I was taken back it was amazing people who were easy to talk to and just honest and kind hearted! Dr. McCammon was a great guy and so down to earth and wanted
I have been one of Dr McCammons patients for almost a year and a half now for a work related ankle and foot injury. He is wonderful, kind, knowledgeable and has a fun personality. One of the best orthopedic surgeons I’ve ever
Timely, friendly, professional, and great service. Dr McCammon knows feet, and cares about helping your feet feel better! And he does a super job with administering cortisone shots!
Scheduling was quick, easy, and efficient, and they were able to fit me in for the next day, as I had an urgent situation. Dr. McCammon was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. I'm on the way to healing thanks to Dr. McCammon and the amazing people at Advantage Orthopedic & Sports Medicine.
This was my first visit and I was very impressed. Friendly staff and Dr McCammons addressed my issue with great results. I was shown a simple way to address my pain and felt results that night. The following day I repeated the advice and eliminated 90% of the foot pain. Thank you for the great advice and service.
Dr. McCammon is the best doctor, very knowledgeable, makes you feel so comfortable, outstanding surgeon, I must say amazing experience from any doctors office I’ve ever been to!!! I would recommend him to everyone
What can I say, I’ve been blessed with wonderful doctors and this was no exception. Dr McCammon was the nicest, funniest, and kindest man I could have worked with. He saw me through a terrible injury all the way to the end. I’m healed and on my way thanks to the wonderful staff at Advantage. I would recommend them to anyone, anytime, any day.
Dr.McCammon is a wonderful physician. Both my husband and I are his patients. You have a foot problem of any kind, this is the man to see, hands down! An added bonus: he has a great support staff...and he is one of the most delightfully unpretentious,kindest, funniest human beings you could ever hope to meet up with! What a fine person he is! We actually look forward to seeing him, every time!
I recently met Dr. Mcammon this year. I have a foot issue, actually both, and my family physician recommended him. You talk about expertise and a great bedside manner all wrapped into one is just unbelievable luck to have found him.
Living In Gladstone, OR I choose to make the drive to Gresham and your clinic to return to Dr. McCammon for foot treatment. Previously and yesterday I enjoyed very friendly and helpful service with all folks, and Dr. McCammon's treatment friendly, professional and helpful. Thanks much.
Dr. McCammon is fabulous. He provided me with great information about healing and told me what to expect. He also gave me great suggestions about what to do after I healed, and gave me a referral for some physical therapy. He was comforting and reassuring, and made healing from a broken toe less stressful.
Dr. McCammon is great! Personable, informative, empathetic, he works with you in the pursuit of healing. I could not be more pleased with his care.
I have already told friends that this was the most successful doctor's appointment in my life. Doctor McCammon is personable and obviously knowledgeable. A problem I have been dealing with for several months was not only diagnosed but solved in about 15 minutes.
Super happy to find out about Advantage Orthopedic and Dr McCammon, after struggling with an Achilles’ tendon with different doctors and physical therapy for 10 months. Besides being very nice, Dr McCammon went right to work ordering tests that hadn’t been done and mentioning several options depending on the outcome of the tests. Besides that he came up with a simple option that gave me immediate partial relief.
Had to have surgery to repair a ruptured tendon. Dr. McCammon and the whole team took excellent care of me. Great bedside manner! Friendly staff! They make me feel very comfortable. Surgery went well and I am still recovering. Can't say enough good things!
