Orthopaedic Surgery


Dr. John Priddy is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the foot and ankle. He has a particular interest in deformities and traumatic injuries in both adults and children.

Dr. Priddy began his medical career at Louisiana Tech University with a bachelor’s degree in Zoology followed by a medical degree from Louisiana State University Health Science Center in Shreveport, Louisiana. He concluded an Internship at The University of Tennessee in Memphis, Tennessee, before completing a five-year orthopedic residency and an Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Fellowship at the renowned W.C. Campbell Clinic.

With over seventeen years of experience, Dr. Priddy has extensive knowledge and advanced training in orthopedic surgery of the foot and ankle. He is highly specialized and is one of the few surgeons qualified to perform total ankle replacement surgery in East Texas.

“Patients who are suffering from foot and ankle pain have to manage this daily — and that’s a very high price for them to pay,” Priddy explains. “We can help these patients regain their mobility and their way of life with the latest, most advanced surgical and non-surgical treatments. Seeing my patients up and walking, pain-free is a wonderful accomplishment.”
