His areas of expertise include foot and ankle surgery, minimally invasive and arthroscopic techniques, total ankle replacement, non-operative treatment options, sports and acute injuries, arthritis of the foot and ankle, foot and ankle instability, bunion/ hammertoe, achilles tendon pain or rupture, flat foot, and cartilage damage.

    A California native and lifelong athlete, Dr. Richardson enjoyed sports throughout high school and college. He played football at Arizona State University, where he majored in bio-engineering with an emphasis on mechanical engineering before being drafted to the NFL by the Carolina Panthers.

He attended medical school at University of California, San Francisco, and earned a Master of Public Health degree from Harvard University. He completed his residency at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, followed by a fellowship at Harvard Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Dr. Richardson loves solving complex problems. He always strives to be a partner to his patients, listening to their concerns and ensuring they understand their options so that, together, they can pursue the best treatment plan possible.
