The Physicians

Selene G. Parekh, MD, MBA | Foot & Ankle Surgery

Selene G. Parekh, MD, MBADr. Parekh joined the North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic and Duke Orthopaedics in 2009. Prior to his tenure at Duke, he was a Foot and Ankle surgeon at the University of North Carolina (UNC). While there, he was integrally involved in the teaching of medical students and residents. Furthermore, he served as the foot and ankle consultant to the Athletic Department, treating many of the well-known UNC athletes.

A graduate of the Boston University School of Medicine, Dr. Parekh completed his internship and residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and his fellowship in foot and ankle surgery under the direction of Drs. Keith L. Wapner, Paul J. Hecht, MD, Wen Chao, MD, and Michael Castro, DO at the University of Pennsylvania.

Prior to graduating from medical school, Dr. Parekh completed a Masters in Business Administration (MBA). This was supplemented by a one-year Healthcare Entrepreneurship Fellowship at the Wharton School of Business. His experiences led to the development of the “Business of Orthopaedics” conference, the first of its kind in the United States. The course exposes orthopaedic surgeons to a breadth of topics, from practice management to product development and entrepreneurship, to personal financial management, to leadership and negotiations. While at UNC, he was an Adjunct Faculty member at the Kenan-Flagler Business School. Currently, he is an Adjunct Faculty member at Duke’s Fuqua Business School.

Dr. Parekh and his wife live in the area and are proud parents of two sons.
