Dr. Ronald Bruscia: In Memoriam
The physicians and staff of Foot and Ankle Family Wellness Center and Foot & Ankle Institute are sad to announce the passing of the Katy practice’s founder, Dr. Ronald Bruscia. In his over three decades in practice caring for patients throughout the greater Houston area, Ronald Bruscia, DPM, was known as a trusted expert for foot and ankle care.
Dr. Bruscia earned his Bachelor of Arts from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He went on to complete his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland, ranking in the top 20% of his graduating class.
After graduation, Dr. Bruscia completed an intensive foot and ankle surgical training through the Harris County Podiatric Residency Program in Houston. During his residency, Dr. Bruscia cared for patients at Houston-area facilities, including Westbury Hospital, Citizens Medical Center, and the former Alief General Hospital. Dr. Bruscia practiced in the Katy community for over 30 years, providing his patients with the highest level of both clinical and surgical foot and ankle care.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Bruscia served as the owner and director of the International Wellness Consultants, where he focused on health care issues, disease prevention, and wellness trends targeting the foot, ankle, and lower leg. He lectured regularly at medical conferences in Southern Texas, as well as at national events. Dr. Bruscia was also heavily involved in the community and has served as the YMCA race director since the early 2000s. A runner himself, Dr. Bruscia completed 18 marathons and triathlons which he often said helped him empathize with patients going through sports injuries and pain- causing conditions.
Our hearts go out to his family who are missing a loving husband, father and grandfather and we join all who knew him in honoring his memory.
