About Dr. Kobos

Sharon Walston Kobos, DPM, is a board-certified podiatrist at Foot & Ankle Specialists of New Mexico, with locations in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, South Valley, Edgewood, and Grants, New Mexico. Dr. Kobos treats patients with both surgical and non-surgical foot and ankle problems. 

Born and raised in Albuquerque, Dr. Kobos earned an undergraduate degree in biology from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. She was first introduced to podiatry as a teenager when she was a competitive figure skater. This led her to receive her Doctor of Podiatric Medicine from the California School of Podiatric Medicine (formerly the California College of Podiatric Medicine) in San Francisco, California. She completed a three-year surgical residency program in San Francisco and Santa Ana, California. After her residency, Dr. Kobos decided to return to her hometown of Albuquerque. 

Dr. Kobos treats patients of all ages, offering preventive foot care for the elderly and immunocompromised. She enjoys treating athletes of all types and is a very conservative physician who is largely recognized for a non-surgical approach to patient care whenever possible. When asked, “Why feet?” Her answer was, “Feet are very important. It is hard to land the space shuttle with a flat tire.” 

She is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery in foot surgery and reconstructive rearfoot/ankle surgery. She is also a fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.

Outside of work, Dr. Kobos’ most important job is being a wife and mother of two daughters. In her free time, she is an avid figure skater and a figure skating judge. She also enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, and running.
