About Dr. Hausenfluke

Matthew Hausenfluke, MD, is a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon at North Texas Foot & Ankle, which has locations in Dallas and Garland, Texas.

Prior to founding North Texas Foot & Ankle, Dr. Hausenfluke spent several years practicing surgical foot and ankle reconstruction at the Foot and Ankle Institute at Monrovia, California, where he participated in the BAJA Project for Crippled Children, spending two years, off and on, serving children in clinics in and around the Mexicali, Mexico, area. During that period, Dr. Hausenfluke spent almost every weekend treating pediatric limb deformities with conservative care and surgical reconstruction. “I got to know the children so well,” comments Hausenfluke, “I could recognize their cries from another room. They were very special to me, and I thoroughly enjoyed my work there. There’s nothing like healing children.”

Dr. Hausenfluke also dedicated a great deal of time to third-world pediatric intervention through “Operation Footprint,” sponsored by the Rotary Club in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where he volunteered his skills in the treatment of pediatric congenital limb deformities.

In January of 2005, Dr. Hausenfluke joined a medical team based out of Baylor hospital of Garland. The surgical mission performed 53 surgical procedures at the Predisan mission in Catacamas, Honduras.             

From 2005-2007, Dr. Hausenfluke led a medical team along with E3 ministries to the Amazon basin in South America. The team spent seven days going from river village to river village, establishing daily clinics to care for the needs of the Brazillian natives.  “I grew a new respect for those who live off the land, and I truly admire the people of the Amazon Basin.” 

After graduating from Texas A&M University with a B.S. in biomedical science, Dr. Hausenfluke attended Des Moines University in Iowa, where he earned his doctorate in podiatry. He then began his residency at the Veteran’s Administration and Scott & White Hospital in Temple, Texas. There he mastered his skills in the treatment of diabetic limb salvage and diabetes-associated ailments. Dr. Hausenfluke has said, “It is my sincerest desire to help heal my patients with as little discomfort and inconvenience as possible.”

Dr. Hausenfluke has a conservative perspective on treatment options and surgical intervention, which considers the patient’s entire body. “I try to achieve a more functional result with conservative treatment options and a heavy emphasis on biomechanics,” explains Hausenfluke. “This philosophy is very important in the patient’s daily activities, as well as in sports-related injuries.”

Dr. Hausenfluke is a native Texan from Abilene. In his spare time, he enjoys sports activities, including distance running, backpacking, cycling, and woodworking. Dr. Hausenfluke is Board Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery.
