Suite 110

Southwest Austin Foot & Ankle Clinic was founded in 2014 to provide comprehensive and compassionate care for all foot and ankle conditions, including heel pain, sports medicine, bunionspediatric deformities, and diabetic complications that affect the feet. Our highly trained foot and ankle surgeons treat patients of all ages, from pediatrics to geriatrics, with a special focus on diabetic foot care and wound management.

Foot and ankle pain is not normal. Many people have lived with various kinds of aches and discomfort for so long that the pain has become a constant, but unwelcome, companion. 

At Southwest Austin Foot & Ankle Clinic, we focus on helping our patients resume normal activities pain-free. We compassionately listen, making sure that the whole medical picture is appreciated. We know that each individual has unique circumstances surrounding their foot or ankle problem. Therefore, we avoid using a “one size fits all” approach to developing treatment plans and, instead, tailor our approach to each individual. Whenever possible, we utilize conservative solutions to resolve foot and ankle pain. When necessary, our surgeons apply the latest surgical techniques and technology to help patients resume their normal activities and maintain mobility.

No matter what treatments are needed for your foot or ankle problem, you will find that our physicians listen carefully to your concerns and work with you to develop a plan that suits your condition and your circumstances. Our experienced staff has “seen it all,” and we strive to make you at ease when you come to us for help. If you or a loved one is suffering from foot or ankle pain, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible so that we can work together to find a solution.

Southwest Austin Foot & Ankle Clinic physicians are accepting new patients at both our Austin and Dripping Springs locations. Our fantastic team of physicians is here to serve you.
