Dr. Barko


Dr. Amy Barko,
CWSP, C.Ped.

Born and raised in Mentor, Ohio, Cleveland’s east side, Dr. Amy Barko, CWSP, C.Ped. knew she wanted to be a doctor since she could talk. Her grandmother stills laughs about it!


Podiatric Surgeon

Dr. Barko has always enjoyed performing surgery for patients that need specialized care. Her care philosophy is to exhaust conservative care first. Seeing her patients progress through post-op surgical appointments is very rewarding. She loves nothing more than to get patients back to their activities and daily routine.

She is on staff at St. Joe East and Baptist Health.

Dr. Barko has recently been named as an Associate Professor at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine.

I enjoy ALL aspects of podiatry, but wound care is by far my favorite and that is why I was motivated to go the extra step and get my wound care board certification.

Conservative Care

She loves that she has the opportunity to work together with her patients to create a comprehensive wound care treatment plan that is based on their lifestyle, activity level, and goals.

She is always compassionate and thorough while explaining wound care procedures and at-home care directions because Dr. Barko knows that most of the healing happens at home. While over 70,000 diabetics this year will undergo amputation, she is committed to reducing that risk for patients under her care.

If you’re a diabetic at risk for serious ulcers and wounds, she’d love to be a part of your care team.

As always my visit was amazing! The office has taken precautions to help patients feel safe during COVID. Everyone is wearing masks and I was quickly brought back to the exam room where I waited there instead of the waiting room before being seen. Super organized and efficient process from start to finish! And the treatment received from Dr. Barko was great!
