Daniel Latt, MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Biomedical Engineering
University of Arizona
Tucson, AZ

Dr. Latt earned his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2002. He then completed residency training in orthopaedic surgery at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He has fellowship training in sports medicine from Kaiser San Diego, and foot and ankle surgery from Duke University.

Dr. Latt specializes in the care of athletic injuries of the shoulder, knee, ankle and foot. He is particularly interested in complex lower extremity reconstruction and realignment, cartilage injuries, patellofemoral disorders, degenerative disorders of tendon and arthroscopy of the ankle, knee and shoulder. He has a special interest in dance medicine and is the medical director of the dance medicine clinic at the University of Arizona.

In addition to his medical degree, Dr. Latt earned a PhD in bioengineering form the University of Pittsburgh. He has experience in both human movement analysis and joint biomechanics. His current research interests include the development of ultrasound for the functional imaging of tendons, the study of joint contact pressures in the ankle and the patellofemoral joints, the study of the viscoelastic properties of bone, and the use patient reported outcomes following lower extremity surgery.

Dr. Latt has served in a number of leadership roles in professional societies through which he has sought to improve the evidence base for orthopaedic care by increasing the quantity and quality of orthopaedic research performed. He is currently the chair of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society Research Committee and a member of the managerial board of the Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Research Network.  He is the also the vice chair of the AAOS Board of Specialty Societies Research Committee.

Dr. Latt is also very committed to improving orthopaedic research through medical publishing. He is a long time reviewer for both sports medicine and foot and ankle journals (AJSM, OJSM, FAI, CORR, and FAS), he has been on the editorial board of the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine since its inception, and in 2016, he became the founding editor of Foot & Ankle Orthopaedics, the online open access sister journal to Foot & Ankle International.
