About Dr. Dixon
Dr. Alexis E. Dixon is a board-eligible orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon. With the goal of launching a foot and ankle center of excellence, she joins DISC following the completion of a fellowship at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, where she worked with Dr. James W. Brodsky, one of the most prolific and highly regarded foot and ankle surgeons in the world, and a past president of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society.
Dr. Dixon was raised on Maui, Hawaii, and received a BA in Spanish literature from Pomona College. After graduating from the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine as valedictorian of her class with Highest Distinction, Dr. Dixon completed her residency at USC, with a significant portion of training at the Los Angeles County Medical Center, one of the largest and busiest trauma centers in the United States. She then went on to complete her fellowship in Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle surgery at Baylor University, home to one of the nation’s oldest and foremost Foot and Ankle fellowship programs.
Tapping her extensive training, Dr. Dixon has a full understanding of the influence the feet have on function of the entire body, and is able to approach the complexity of the foot with a broad understanding of the musculoskeletal system. While at Baylor University, she worked closely with five orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons to gain a broad base of knowledge in the treatment of all conditions of the foot and ankle.
As a result, Dr. Dixon’s expertise is extensive. Her specialties include the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis of the foot and ankle, tendinitis and tears of the peroneal, Achilles, and posterior tibial tendons, flatfoot deformity, osteochondral lesions, plantar fasciitis, hallux valgus/bunions, hallux rigidus/arthritis of the great toe, deformities of the lesser toes, metatarsalgia, Morton’s neuroma, ankle sprains and turf toe, among all other injuries of the foot and ankle, including sports injuries and degenerative conditions.
Dr. Dixon is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society. She has published and presented six peer-viewed research articles on issues in foot and ankle surgery at national and international meetings for both of these societies.
