About Us

Capital Podiatry Associates has been serving the foot and ankle needs of patients in Northern Virginia, Mount Vernon, Crystal City, and National Landing for more than 25 years. Founded by Dr. Leland Gilmore in 1993 and originally based out of Fairfax Hospital, which grew into the Inova Health System, Capital Podiatry Associates eventually set up its own independent practice. 

Dr. Gilmore and staff now see patients from their South County office, but also treat certain patients out of Inova Mt. Vernon Hospital and through affiliation with Sentara. We are known throughout the area for our advanced treatment options, excellent patient care and customer service, and flexible appointment options including telemedicine and valet services.


Meet Dr. Gilmore

Dr. Gilmore is a compassionate, experienced physician who is proud to provide the highest quality foot and ankle care to patients of all ages.

After graduating from the University of Maryland, Dr. Gilmore earned his doctorate in podiatric medicine at Kent State University in Ohio. He returned to the region for his residency training at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Baltimore before founding Capital Podiatry Associates in 1993.

Dr. Gilmore is board-certified by three separate podiatric medicine and surgery boards, including the American Board of Podiatric Medicine. He is always looking for new ways to learn and improve his skillsets as a physician and surgeon because he believes his patients deserve the best.

Our Philosophy

We believe that everyone in Mount Vernon, National Landing, Crystal City, and surrounding communities deserves excellent foot and ankle care. Not only are we thorough and effective, but we also value your time. This includes limiting office waits before the exam room!

Our goal is to keep you moving on with the rest of your day from the moment you walk through our door to the moment you leave. Falling behind may sometimes happen as we balance a schedule with unexpected or in-depth patient needs, but you can always count on us to be mindful of your time!

Community Outreach

We are forever grateful to a community who has trusted us with their care for decades. Without your strong support, we would simply not be here!

Capital Podiatry Associates is honored to give back to the community in different ways throughout each year. Our outreach work includes:

  • Participating in the Race for Every Child fundraiser and run for Children’s National Hospital.
  • Serving with a clinic for the homeless out of Rising Hope United Methodist Church.
  • Providing wound care for the indigent population through Sentara.

We also recognize that our community extends well beyond our local neighborhoods. That is why we’re also proud to work with the American Podiatric Medical Association and podiatrists throughout the country to provide treatment for children’s foot deformities in other countries.
