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.

The front desk is much nicer now that you can see all the check in stations. I almost never have the same nurse, but all of them are really good at making small talk, and just chatting. I can tell that Dr. Dix is working on connecting with his patients. There was definitely a difference between my last visit a month ago, and this visit.
February 20, 2020
Dr. Dix was very compassionate.

Dr Dix seemed in a hurry and did not address all of my concerns

very professional and helpful staff.

At Avera on Louise Ortho, the front desk check in is challenging. You can't see who all is open as you approach the check in desk, so you end up walking down the line of "windows", looking for someone who will make eye contact to indicate they are open.
October 13, 2019
Told the nurse I'd put a good word in for her ??. She was a sweetheart..
October 12, 2019
The nurse and dr. Dix were very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with
October 12, 2019
The provider seemed like he was in a hurry and the appt felt rushed. He never sat down, basically just came in told me quickly what the options were for my foot asked if I had any questions and scurried out. It happened so fast I felt like a number. Not the experience I expected as a new patient, and new to the orthopedic area. Could use some assistance with his bedside manner.
October 11, 2019
Dr. Dix and team were all very helpful and professional!
October 09, 2019
Would definitely recommend to others in the future

September 28, 2019
I respect dr. Dix I know he's a busy person but maybe he could slow down a little and explain slower other than that he was great experience was great
September 26, 2019

September 22, 2019

My nurse who did my medical history was great! Dr Dix was kind and explained things well
September 21, 2019
Apppointment was on time.
September 20, 2019
Dr. Dix seem to be in a hurry. We didnt talk about my history at all. I think he spent about 10 min. With me.
September 04, 2019
Dr Dix and his staff are top notch.
September 04, 2019
I do feel rushed, considering how much thesee visits expect more than 10 min with the dr.....i feel like im being pushed through the Dr. Schedule. These visits are the fastest have ever seen an Dr. Let alone a Specialist. Slow down, talk out options better.
August 29, 2019
From the receptionist, to Dr. Dix's nurses, to Dr. Dix himself, top notch service!
August 24, 2019
Excellent care and would not change a thing! Thank you!
August 20, 2019
I only saw the Dr. for about 5-10 min.He offered a steroid shot but I thought not & told me what kind of shoes to get. He was nice & quick .
August 07, 2019
Everyone I met was very friendly and seemed genuinely happy with their jobs.
July 27, 2019
The doctor did very little physical examination of my foot during either appointment. He looked at it from his chair and on xray but didn't really touch or manipulate my foot at all.
July 25, 2019
The only thing I have to complain about is the offices being on the third floor. When you have people with walkers or other devices used in orthopedics, it can be a long walk to get where you need to go.
July 19, 2019
The receptionist was very rude at first. Seemed like I was a bother rather then there for him to do his job! By the end of our conversation he was a little bit nicer.
July 18, 2019
Doing great job
July 18, 2019
my first visit
July 14, 2019

July 13, 2019
