Dr. Charles Caplis

Podiatrist

Dr. Caplis was born in Metairie and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. Having a passion for medicine and a flair for adventure he decided to move to Chicago, Illinois for his medical training. Dr. Caplis attended William Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine and graduated in 2005, where he was a merit scholar and received honors in the department of surgery. After obtaining his medical degree Dr. Caplis decided to stay in Chicago and completed a three-year surgical residency training program at Michael Reese Hospital; where he was chief podiatry resident from 2007-2008.

Following his residency training Dr. Caplis worked on prestigious Michigan Avenue in Chicago as well as brief training on Park Avenue in NYC. At these locales he honed his surgical skills and became proficient at performing cutting edge cosmetic surgical techniques. While Dr. Caplis’ Michigan Avenue clientele might have been well to do, his passion lies in helping the underserved and he became involved in a medical mission program in Central America. Dr. Caplis traveled to El Salvador where he volunteered his time performing many surgeries on both adults and children. He was also involved in serving the homeless of Chicago with free foot care once a month with St. Paul’s church.

Even though he enjoyed his career in Chicago, he longed to return to his roots in Louisiana and in 2014 joined Gulf South Foot & Ankle. While he had been gone for approximately 14 years he has not lost any of his southern charm and has quickly built up an impressive practice as a result of his excellent medical skills and charming bedside manner. He is board certified by the ABPM.

Dr. Caplis lives in Madisonville with his son, Ethan; and enjoys his free time playing tennis, working out, coaching his son’s soccer team, the arts and enjoying time with family and friends.
