- TLC’s new series, My Feet Are Killing Me, premiered in January, 2020.
- It stars Ebonie Vincent and Brad Schaeffer, two bold foot and ankle surgeons who treat some pretty gnarly conditions.
- Men’s Health readers may recognize Dr. Brad from another TV show—one that involves Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
They say we’re living in the golden age of television, and never has that been truer when TLC announced the 2020 premiere of My Feet Are Killing Me, a brand new show—as the title suggests—about people whose feet are killing them. Billed as a “Dr. Pimple Popper companion series,” My Feet Are Killing Me follows two foot doctors as they treat a plethora of holy-crap-what-is-that conditions, including gnarly bunions and funky growths.
One of these intrepid doctors is Dr. Ebonie Vincent, a California-based foot and ankle surgeon. The other is Dr. Brad Schaeffer, who in the series promo un-ironically utters the words “every foot is like a story.” (I’m telling you, this show will win Emmys!) While you’re busy being wowed by his foot and ankle expertise, you may also be wondering where you’ve seen Dr. Brad before. I’ll give you a clue: It involves The Rock.
Here’s what to know about Dr. Brad Schaeffer from TLC’s My Feet Are Killing Me.
Dr. Brad is a foot and ankle surgeon in New Jersey.
He’s on the team at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists in Hillsborough and Piscataway, New Jersey.
According to his bio, he played collegiate baseball at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida, before heading back north to attend the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia.
Dr. Brad appeared on The Titan Games.
If Dr. Brad looks familiar, it might be because you’ve seen him on NBC’s The Titan Games—yes, The Rock’s fitness competition show—where he made it to the semifinals. Schaeffer competed on the show at age 34. Here’s a video of him using “surgical precision” to master the Tower Drop challenge:
