Specialty Areas

foot and ankle surgery

Revision Foot & Ankle Surgery
Sometimes treatments for foot and ankle conditions do not work or do not have the desired outcome. In these cases, revision surgery performed by a physician with specific training and expertise in this area can result in reducing or eliminating pain, stiffness and walking challenges.


Arthritis is a common condition of the foot and ankle and often occurs after trauma or as part of the aging process. It can be painful, resulting in loss or limited movement, problems with joint function and deformities in the joints. Fortunately, there are options for arthritis sufferers to reduce pain, optimize function and improve quality of life.

foot and ankle trauma

Fractures, breaks and injury to the tendons and ligaments are the most common forms of trauma to the foot and ankle. These traumatic injuries can cause pain, walking issues and an inability to bear weight on the foot. Trauma often requires immediate care to ensure the best possible recovery and outcome.


In addition to specialty in foot and ankle surgery and arthritis, Dr. McAlister provides care for all general foot and ankle conditions, including common conditions such as flat foot, Charcot foot, Achilles tendonitis, hammertoes and bunions. Dr. McAlister treats both adult and pediatric patients.

regenerative medicine

As a leader and educator in the field of foot and ankle surgery and treatment, Dr. McAlister offers minimally invasive regenerative medicine treatments, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, amniotic membrane injections and shockwave therapy.

As an endurance athlete himself, an area of focus for Dr. McAlister is on treating both conservatively and surgically the foot and ankle needs of the athletic community. He has worked extensively with the running and triathlon community in Arizona, treating foot and ankle injuries and helping athletes get back to play.

Dr. McAlister did my ankle replacement and restored my mobility. This enabled me to get through the day without terrible pain. He is not only an excellent surgeon, but a kind and caring Doctor who takes time with his patients and explains everything to their satisfaction. He is the best!

Patient review from HealthGrades

Dr. McAlister performed an ankle replacement, along with two other procedures on my foot. I know I received the best care possible and am confident that the outcome will be excellent. Doctor listened to my concerns and answers my questions when necessary.

Patient review from HealthGrades

I went to see Dr. McAlister after I had two failed bunion surgeries on my right foot. I was pleased to see that he does bunion revision surgery. From the moment I went to his office I knew I was in the right place to get help. He is friendly, knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything about the surgery, what to expect with recovery etc. I was given complete care instruction on how to care for my foot in between visits with the assurance that they were available for any question.

Patient review from HealthGrades

I ruptured my Achilles and Dr. McAlister did a great job of putting me back together. From my first appointment Dr. McAlister and his team were great to work with, knowledgeable, informative and professional. He treats you feel like a person instead of a patient number. I would highly recommend Dr. McAlister and his team.
