Dr. Dana Giacalone is a native Texan who was born and raised in Coleman, just south of Abilene. She attended Texas Tech University and finished her undergraduate degree at the University of North Texas.

Dr. Giacalone joined FAANT in 2005 and brought with her extensive training in diabetic wound care and limb salvage. She specializes in complex foot and ankle reconstructive surgery as well as ankle arthroscopy. She is board certified in wound care and foot and ankle surgery. In 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010, she was named one of America's Top Podiatrists by the Consumers' Research Council of America.
When she is not in the office, she is at home in Justin planning her next deep sea fishing trip or big horn sheep hunt. She might also be found at the gun range preparing for her next competition shoot. She also enjoys NASCAR and is a card-carrying member of DIVA WOW, an international women's organization devoted to promoting women in the outdoors. Feel free to share your hunting/fishing adventures with her next time you see her.
Foot and ankle athletic injuries are very common. We specialize in sports medicine getting you back to sports as soon as possible. The most common foot and ankle sports injuries are plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, shin splints, Achilles tendonitis, peroneal tendonitis, stress fractures, posterior tibial tendonitis, anterior tibial tendonitis, neuromas, tarsal tunnel syndrome, ankle instability, and metatarsalgia. Gait problems can also cause ileotibial band syndrome, patella tendonitis, back pain, hip pain and piriformis syndrome. Medications, injections, splinting, orthotics and/or physical therapy are often quite helpful in treating most injuries. Our doctors will discuss your injury and prescribe a course of treatment that will return you to sport stronger than when you came into the office.
Fall down, go boom? Foot and ankle trauma is extremely common no matter how young or old you are. Fractures, torn ligaments and tendons, sprain and strains, puncture wounds and toenail trauma occurs every day. Our physicians can help put you back together so that you can recover from your accident as fast as possible. Don't wait too long to seek medical advice after your accident or injury. Delaying treatment often only worsens the problem!
Foot pain related to congenital and acquired foot and ankle deformities is extremely prevalent in our society. Pain can be from flat feet or a high arched foot and associated gait problems; or be from a progressive deformity like a bunion or a hammertoe. Our doctors are extensively trained to diagnose and treat the underlying deformity to help you function at your best. We want to prevent your problems from getting worse, no matter what you inherited from your family! God may have had a sense of humor when he created your feet, but we will work with you to optimize your biomechanical function and aesthetics! No one should suffer from ugly, painful feet!
Neurological foot and ankle issues can be a burning or shooting pain, numbness, weakness or just a "pins and needles" sensation. Nerve can be affected by compression at the spine level, knee level, ankle level or in your foot. Neuropathy can be a subtle nerve degeneration from aging, diabetes, and a myriad of other causes. Do not assume your nerve issues will go away or that nothing can be done. A proper diagnosis can lead to alleviation of your nerve troubles.
