About Me

If you’re in need of foot or ankle surgery to lessen pain, increase mobility, or improve your quality of life, look to Brian Dix, DPM, for experienced foot and ankle care.

Expert Surgeon for Feet & Ankles

Dr. Dix, a board certified foot and reconstructive rearfoot/ankle surgeon at Avera Medical Group Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Sioux Falls, SD, offers expertise in the surgical treatment of a variety of foot and ankle conditions – for all ages – due to injury, trauma, deformity, or conditions such as arthritis, ankle instability, bunions, flatfoot, high arch feet, and more.

As a young athlete, Dr. Dix experienced foot problems from sports injuries, including many sprained ankles. After seeing the benefits of working with a podiatrist first hand and shadowing a podiatrist during high school, he was inspired to become a podiatrist who also offers sports medicine services.

“Being able to help patients heal and get back to doing the activities they enjoy and the lifestyle they want is the best part of what I get to do every day,” he says. “I strive to treat all patients as if they were my family members, to look out for them and take care of their needs.”

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Dix enjoys spending time with his wife and young daughter, in addition to playing basketball and tennis, golfing, hunting, and fishing.

Dr Dix and his staff are wonderful. They never treat me with anything but respect! He takes time even if he is busy to explain things and talks to me about all options. He never treats me like the old lady who just needs to loose 100lbs.

Dr. Dix is always very attentive and caring. He explains where you are at and where you are headed with your treatment.
May 21, 2022
During both of my visits, Dr. Dix seemed pre-occupied and anxious to move on, as if he has something better to do. I had further questions, he answered the last question I was able to ask with one foot out of the door.

September 14, 2021
I am in Sioux Falls visiting from out of state. I didn't know what to expect with the visit. I can honestly say that from the moment I walked in, I felt very comfortable. Receptionists."- nurses- X-ray tech were very professional- courteous and friendly. Dr Dix came high recommended and I was very pleased with his knowledge - understanding and very caring of my issues.

Dr. Dix was absolutely great. He is very kind, willing to listen, and very patient. I needed to have a procedure done to remove a toenail. From previous experiences, I was extremely anxious. He was so understanding, calm, and patient with me as I weighed my pros/cons of the procedure. I would/will highly recommend him to anyone!

The nurse and Dr. Dix are the best. I can't thank them enough for the extraordinary care that I receive.
February 16, 2021
I had a lot of anxiety about this procedure and put it off for several years. Dr. Dix was confident that it would have a positive outcome. Although there was a setback (infection) I am still impressed by the minimal post-op pain (for both surgeries) and feel very optimistic about the long term success. I am confident I will regain the active lifestyle I had been missing. Thank you for your skill Dr. Dix.
February 09, 2021

I think you should provide a more detailed explanation of post operation recovery time span and possible home physical therapy.
January 19, 2021
Very personable and understanding will be my foot doctor from now on
January 12, 2021
Having an injury is a terrible feeling of uncertainty. Being in the care of Dr. Dix and staff has made me feel at ease. From reception to the nurses, xray techs and Dr. Dix himself I will recommend him to everyone!
January 12, 2021
Love this facility. It is ran nicely!
January 12, 2021
The doc was good, I just have the feeling he has seen this that it's too repetitive, gave me the feeling he wanted to be done!
January 05, 2021

December 29, 2020
Nothing I can think of! Everyone very helpful right from walking into the front door ! Th building itself I really feel a peace but it's the people inside that make it complete ! Thank you
December 29, 2020
I appreciate the courtesy and care that I receive when I am in your facility.
December 22, 2020
Dr Dix was in such a hurry to be finished with the appointment{kept looking at his watch} did not in any way take the condition as any kind of a priority in his schedule! I felt like we had wasted our time with this appointment. Would not recommend Dr Dix to anybody!
December 22, 2020
Show appreciated your fast friendly and efficient timing. Extremely brief waiting periodsBetween times with your professionals in-and-out of the office
December 22, 2020
Everyone was amazing, from the Reception Desk, to the Nurse and the Provider. Such a great staff! Thank y'all so much!
December 15, 2020
Every person I came in contact with was pleasant, efficient and helpful. My appointment was at 8:20. I arrived at 7:55, and I think I had been assessed by the nurse, x-rays taken, met with the physician, had education for future physical therapy and at-home care, and received an injection all by 8:26 (6 minutes after when my appointment was supposed to start). It was a great experience altogether and the front desk staff was helpful in answering additional questions I had regarding insurance switchover to a new company. Thank you all!
December 15, 2020
The staff are all so kind and caring. I appreciate all that they do. Dr Dix is very kind and caring. Great doc
