Foot and Ankle Specialist seeing patients at MCJR

Meet Dr. Steven Herbst

More than anything, MCJR is dedicated to making the healthcare experience more accessible and comforting for our patients. One of the ways we strive to do that is by meeting as many of your orthopedic needs as we can. Our MCJR surgeons specialize in hip and knee pain, but we also have a foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Steven Herbst, who see patients in our office for your convenience.


Dr. Herbst is a foot and ankle surgeon who works primarily at Central Indiana Orthopedics in Muncie, IN, but has been coming to MCJR twice a month to see patients and perform outpatient surgery at MSSC. Herbst graduated from the Indiana University School of Medicine, then completed his residency training in orthopedic surgery at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, IA. After his residency, Dr. Herbst moved to Baltimore, MD to train in foot and ankle surgery.

He has been in practice with Central Indiana Orthopedics since 2002.

Dr. Herbst treats patients with a variety of foot and ankle problems, including arthritis, foot/ankle deformities, and flat feet. Some of his most common procedures include Achilles tendon repairs, flatfoot reconstruction, midfoot and ankle fusions, posterior tibial tendon repairs, and fracture care.

To schedule an appointment with him in our office, call his main office at (765) 284-7738.
