Meet Your Santa Ynez Valley Foot and Ankle Specialist


Sr, Brayton Campbell, Santa Ynez and Solvang Podiatrist

Dr. Brayton Campbell's medical training began at the University of Wisconsin, where he received a Bachelor of Medical Science. He then went on to Des Moines University College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, where he received his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree.

Brayton's next academic stop was at Department of Veterans Affair’s Loma Linda Healthcare System in Ohio where he completed his residency. The three-year program is designed to produce a podiatric surgical specialist who is an expert in the recognition and management of all foot and ankle conditions.

“Dr. Campbell has a gentle bedside manner and skilled surgical hands,” says Dr. Bob Barvarian, co-director of University Foot and Ankle Institute. “He brings a small town sense of friendliness, combined with the medical skills of a metropolitan physician.”

As an lifelong outdoor enthusiast, Brayton took up surfing shortly after he moved to Southern California. And when the waves are flat, you can find him on the golf course or riding his motorcycle.
