Dr. Brazis is a board-certified podiatrist focusing on orthopaedic foot and ankle care and surgical procedures, including total ankle replacement.

Dr. Brazis has a passion serving those with foot and ankle conditions. From patients with diabetes who have suffered with chronic foot and/or ankle pain to patients who have had an acute injury from a fall, she is eager to serve your need. Her overall practice focuses on areas such as arthrocentesis, athlete’s foot, bunion surgery, diabetic care, lower leg/ankle fractures and dislocations, plantar fasciitis, and wound care.

Dr. Brazis is originally from Chicago, Illinois, where she did her undergraduate at Loyola University, her professional schooling at Rush University, and her surgical residency at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago. She has been Southern Illinois for the past decade with Southern Illinois Healthcare, treating patients at both Herrin Hospital and Memorial Hospital of Carbondale.

“It has been a pleasure serving my patients through the SIH system and now I look to bring an even more focused approach to foot and ankle care at the Orthopaedic Institute,” said Dr. Amanda L. Brazis, DPM. “My family and I live right here in Southern Illinois where my children attend and participate in school and community activities, and my husband and I look forward to many more years to come.”
