Dr. Brandon Nelson, a double board certified foot and ankle surgeon, was born and raised in the Northwest and attended school in Edmonds before graduating from the University of Washington. He received his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine at Des Moines University and completed his three year residency training at Tacoma General Hospital in functional reconstruction of the foot and ankle. Dr. Nelson has a special interest in foot and ankle surgical repair techniques that minimize downtime and help patients return to activities more quickly. He attends numerous foot and ankle conferences annually to learn the latest techniques for foot and ankle surgery.

He is one of the foremost experts on bunions and has pioneered new techniques that create better outcomes. He has extensive experience with the Lapiplasty bunionectomy and has performed thousands of bunion surgeries. He constantly reviews surgical journals and participates in surgical workshops throughout the year. He has cutting edge techniques that allow his patients to walk after bunion surgery and minimizes scar appearance with plastic surgery type closure. He currently performs bunion surgeries every Monday and is happy to provide consultations for bunions. Additionally, he also has an interest in heel pain and its causes. He is an avid exerciser and has struggled with heel pain in the past and so had a special interest in plantar fasciitis. He is one of the founding doctors for a clinic that specializes in heel pain. He lives on Mercer Island with his wife and two children. When not practicing medicine, Dr. Nelson enjoys traveling with his family, fishing and snowboarding.
