Dr. Kevin Ragothaman, DPM

My name is Kevin Ragothaman, DPM and I am a foot and ankle specialist, native to the Bay Area. I attended the University of Washington where I majored in molecular biology before attending the Western University of Health Sciences College of Podiatric Medicine. I then completed my residency training at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C. While in residency, I garnered a special interest in treating difficult to heal wounds. I also participated in research projects related to outcomes of techniques and the application of biotechnology in limb preservation. I then completed a fellowship in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, much of which took place at Grant Medical Center’s Bone and Joint Center in Columbus, OH. There, I learned minimally invasive techniques and management of lower extremity deformities.

I have a special interest in treating complex wounds and infections. I am also interested in treating painful deformities of the foot and ankle, along with sports injuries. I believe that an interprofessional, team-based approach is the proper way to care for the human body. When conservative measures do not work, I am well-trained in surgical modalities, including minimally invasive techniques, as well as medical innovations to help people get back on their feet.

For fun, I am a music enthusiast and I enjoy playing the guitar. I am also a big sports fan and spend as much time as I can outdoors. I am happy to be returning to the Bay Area and look forward to helping you.
