About Us

Welcome to Central Texas Foot Specialist!

We at Central Texas Foot Specialist take pride in treating Foot and Ankle issues the best. After graduating from college our doctors completed medical school with the emphasis on the foot and ankle and how they affect the rest of the body. After podiatric medical school our doctors trained three extra years becoming surgeons specializing in foot and ankle surgical treatments to ensure comfort and return function to as quickly as possible. Our surgeons, unlike other foot and ankle surgeons, have a philosophy that keeping you active and mobile is a key to healing. Though our doctors are surgically trained, we pride ourselves on trying to keep surgery as a last resort option if possible.

So if you, or your loved one, ages 0-100 have foot or ankle pain, or simply even would like an foot/ankle evaluation, give the doctors at Central Texas Foot Specialist a call today. 512-819-4555. We serve all of Central Texas with locations in Cedar Park and Georgetown, Texas.
