Seinfeld on Podiatry

Wikis > Podiatry Practice > Podiatry Humour > Seinfeld on Podiatry

In the 75th episode (The Conversion; first aired 16 December 1991) of the TV sitcom, Seinfeld, the characters Jerry Seinfeld (Jerry Seinfeld) and Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) had this exchange about Podiatrists being doctors:

Jerry Seinfeld is a long time sufferer of heel pain that has been treated by a number of podiatrists. He has donated to projects at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine including the gait lab and a symposium to honor the late Dr Richard Schuster.

Some were offended by Sienfeld's slight on the podiatry profession:

"...he said, "anyone can get into podiatry school." It was defamatory and did not foster a positive impression of our profession".

All responses to this comment were positive towards Seinfeld and his positive attitude and contributions to the profession.

IN May 2014, Jerry Seinfeld made a second donation to the NYCPM, as noted in PM News:

For the second year in a row, comedian Jerry Seinfeld has made a substantial donation to the New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM) as a tribute to his podiatrist, Joseph D’Amico, DPM, Professor of Orthopedics and Pediatrics at the College. Dr. D’Amico directed that the donation be made to NYCPM, his alma mater. It will be used to support the Richard O. Schuster Memorial Biomechanics Seminar and for biomechanical research at the College.

In the the episode of Jerry Seinfeld's web series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, called Comedy is a Concealed Weapon (released on January 16, 2014 and featuring Jay Leno), they showed a close-up of Seinfeld's custom made version of the Nike Shox. It is not known if these shoes were tried for his chronic plantar heel pain problem or not. The GMUND40 label refers to his Porsche Gmund:seinfeldshoes
