Welcome to my web page! My name is Lindsay Russell, DPM, and I am one of the four podiatrists here at Kaiser Permanente, South Sacramento.

I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2004 at the completion of my three-year podiatric surgical residency program with Kaiser here in Sacramento. I finished my first two years of residency at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego.

I’m originally from Salt Lake City but have become very comfortable here in California, as my wife and I have spent the last 10+ years living in both the northern and southern portions of the State.

Working at Kaiser Permanente is an honor for me, and I firmly believe that the quality of medical and personalized care provided here is second to no other I have encountered. Practicing within Kaiser Permanente allows me to focus on patient care. It also allows me the unique opportunity to interact and consult with other medical specialists, a practice that only improves the care you will receive.

I look forward to providing the best podiatric care to my patients and hope that you feel comfortable asking informed questions and actively participating in your care.
