Dr. Marta Riniker


Marta Riniker, DPM, is a fellowship-trained and board certified foot and ankle surgical podiatrist, serving patients at Phoenix Foot and Ankle Institute's Phoenix, AZ location.

Prior to her career in podiatry, Dr. Riniker attended the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition Science, laying the foundation for a comprehensive understanding of human health.  She went on to study at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine where she was a member of the Pi Delta Honors Society and graduated in 2014. She then completed a rigorous three-year foot and ankle surgical residency in Portland, Oregon, honing her skills in foot and ankle surgery.  Following residency, she furthered her training by pursuing a one-year fellowship in advanced foot and ankle reconstruction, relocating back to Pennsylvania.  She practiced in the Santa Fe area of New Mexico and in Tucson before relocating to Phoenix to join Dr. McAlister at Phoenix Foot and Ankle Institute. Her extensive training prepared her to be able to treat all aspects of foot and ankle conditions, but she takes a particular clinical and surgical interest in sports injuries, foot and ankle fractures, strains and sprains, acute and chronic foot and ankle pain, wound care, and foot and ankle deformity correction.  

Outside of work, Dr. Riniker has many interests and hobbies including hiking, yoga, running, going to the gym, camping, traveling, and exploring new restaurants and coffee shops in town. She is a dog mom to an adorable Pomeranian who joins her on a lot of her adventures.

Dr. Riniker is committed to delivering the highest quality care to her patients.  She places great importance on a team approach, developing a treatment plan together with her patient that is individually tailored to each person’s specific goals and needs.  She takes a conservative approach to foot and ankle care whenever possible by employing non-invasive treatments and preventive strategies.  However, when appropriate, surgery may be the best course of action for the desired treatment outcome.  Dr. Riniker is highly skilled and well-trained in surgical procedures and will recommend surgery when it is the best and necessary course of action to provide you with the highest level of care.
