Dr. Olivera Jovic was born and raised in Orlando, Florida where she later attended the University of Central Florida and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Dr. Jovic, who always loved helping people, quickly saw that science, and ultimately medicine, could provide her with the tools to serve, explore, and invent like no other career could. Ankles may not have been her plan when she was an undergrad, but like it does with so many of us a serendipitous mix of mentorship and opportunity ignited a passion for podiatry she pursues to this day.
Dr. Olivera Jovic received her Master of Science in Biomedical Science from Barry University and then later completed her medical education at School of Podiatric Medicine. She received many honors and awards, at Barry University, including the Outstanding Civic Service Award and the Podiatric Academic Merit Scholarship. After medical school, Dr. Jovic completed a three year Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery residency program at Mount Sinai Medical Center of Miami Beach, FL where she served as Chief Resident. Dr. Jovic’s residency training encompassed all aspects of foot and ankle trauma, diabetic limb salvage, advanced techniques in wound care, as well as elective and reconstructive foot and ankle surgeries.
After living in Miami Beach for over a decade, Dr. Jovic has become immersed in the community. She volunteers her time to many local charities, and when Dr. Jovic isn’t helping the beach walk better, she enjoys the social pleasures of biking, yoga, and traveling internationally – where she offers her medical talents to patients worldwide.
Today, Dr. Jovic specializes in both the conservative and surgical treatment of all foot and ankle conditions, ranging from pediatric to geriatric care, sports medicine to trauma, as well as reconstructive and revision surgeries. Her range of expertise allows her to treat a variety of patients which, in turn, nurtures and develops her already diverse skill set. Due to her vast training and experience, Dr. Jovic receives requests to lend her skills in all pathology of the foot and ankle.
Dr. Jovic’s calm, collected, charisma is difficult to convey in such a short biography. See for yourself the steps you and Dr. Jovic can take together toward a more amble lifestyle.
