About Me

Peter Bellezza, DPM, is an expert in comprehensive foot and ankle care, or podiatry, at Avera Orthopedics in Sioux Falls, SD. Whether you’re an athlete, child, older adult — or anywhere in between — Dr. Bellezza understands that the mobility of your feet is essential to living life and accomplishing the things you need and want to do.

Expert Foot and Ankle Care

“It’s exciting to be part of podiatric medicine,” said Dr. Bellezza. “Over the last 30 years, the field has progressed significantly so that we can offer more surgical and nonsurgical solutions for a variety of conditions related to the foot, ankle and lower leg.”

Some of these conditions include:

His services include wound care, fracture repair, reconstructive surgery, diabetic limb salvage and minor office procedures.

Collaborating for the Patient’s Foot and Ankle Health

Dr. Bellezza appreciates working alongside health experts from various disciplines to deliver the best care possible for patients.

“For example, as I recommend the best options for preserving foot health for a patient with diabetes,” said Dr. Bellezza, “I might collaborate with a vascular surgeon to improve blood flow or the patient’s internal medicine physician to better manage their diabetes.”

Active Lifestyle

Dr. Bellezza enjoys spending time with family and being outdoors; you’ll often find him hiking or participating in any kind of sports activity. He also loves the adventure of traveling, trying new cuisines or discovering the great atmosphere and tastes of local breweries.
