Dr. Klawitter went to the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines, Iowa. She graduated from the College of Podiatric Medicine in June, 1999.

She completed her two year residency in Grand Blanc, Michigan at the Genesys Regional Medical Center from 1999-2001 where she was chief resident her second year.

Dr. Nathan Penney, DPM

Dr. Nathan Penney is a native Nebraskan, son of Starr and Tom Penney, who was team captain of the Husker football team in the late 60's. He returns to Omaha to join Mid Plains Podiatry after 15 years away from "The Good Life". He is a graduate of Burke High School as well as the Honors Program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he was a Regent's Scholar. Dr. Penney went to Miami, Florida, to attend medical school at Barry University. He completed 4 years of residency training in foot and ankle surgery at the prestigious Grant Medical Center Podiatric Surgery Residency in Columbus, OH (where he continued to wear his trademark Husker scrub hat-even in Buckeye country). After completing his residency, he has been in private practice in Tampa, Florida, for the last 7+ years.

Dr. Penney is fully versed in all aspects of podiatry and foot and ankle surgery. He has trained on all of the newest treatments and surgical techniques on the market. Dr. Penney is one of a small number of surgeons nationwide trained to perform total ankle replacement surgery and was featured on a nationally syndicated Fox News story about the procedure. He lectures and presents research at conferences throughout North America. He has authored multiple journal articles as well as a reference textbook for physicians to study as they prepare for board certification exams.

Dr. Penney believes that each patient is an individual and takes the time to get to know each patient, their condition, and their needs/goals so he can tailor an individualized treatment program for each. While Dr. Penney is a renowned surgeon, he exhausts all conservative treatment options before recommending surgical intervention.

Dr. Penney enjoys watching Nebraska sporting events as well as all types of soccer worldwide. He is a golfer that misses the year round golf weather of Florida, but is glad to have his old golf partner (his father) back now that he is home again. He is a runner, so he understands the common foot and ankle ailments that runners often suffer.

Dr. Penney has two children, Preston (11) and Adriana (8).
