There are conditions related to the foot and ankle that are specific to sports medicine and athletes, runners in particular. Dr. McAlister specializes in treating foot and ankle issues with athletes, and is a sought-after physician for the Arizona athletic community. He competes in marathons and triathlons and understands the importance of maintaining optimal health to continue doing what you love to do.
Many foot and ankle issues related to athletes are treatable conservatively. However, when surgery is required, as with the case of a major fracture or deteriorated Achilles tendon, Dr. McAlister is a fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon uniquely qualified to help get athletes back to play.
When an athletic injury does occur, oftentimes early evaluation and treatment will result in the best outcome. Dr. McAlister will collaborate with you on options based on your goals and lifestyle.
