Foot and Ankle

If you suffer from foot and ankle conditions, every step can serve as a painful reminder to take better care of your feet. The foot and ankle is one of the most problematic areas of the human body from acute injury, chronic overuse, or deformity. Whatever the cause, the experienced physicians at UT Southwestern Medical Center can help.

Our Services
