Foot & Ankle Care

The Expertise to Keep You on Your Feet


If you suffer from foot or ankle pain, the simplest and most important daily activities can range from uncomfortable to excruciating. The foot and ankle specialists   at Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are dedicated to helping you live with less pain and more mobility.


The specialists at Houston Methodist lead and adopt the latest advancements in treatment, including minimally invasive approaches for tendon ruptures and rehabilitation. 
Our specialists are also involved in research around surgical techniques and prosthesis design through the Houston Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation & Education (MITIESM). For example, Kevin Varner, MD, invented a metal plate to help provide more stability  in the repair of certain foot and ankle fractures — a technique now being used nationwide. 


Our research and innovation means we provide our patients the most advanced and personalized foot and ankle treatments available.


Houston Methodist meets the highest standard of care for professional sports teams and performing arts organizations. Because we solve the foot and ankle challenges of world-class athletes, we are at the forefront of innovation and bring that same elite level of care to all of our patients.
