Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Dr. Christine Seaworth began private practice at University Orthopedic Surgeons in 2013. She grew up spending much of her time in the hospital with her father, a cardiologist, and mother, an infectious disease physician. Her previous career was that of a civil engineer, which carries over into her practice today in understanding how the body’s musculoskeletal system is built and helping people restore function in their joints and muscles.

Dr. Seaworth is fellowship-trained in both foot and ankle surgery. She specializes in many conditions of the foot and ankle, including arthritis, sports injuries, Achilles injuries, bunions, deformity correction, osteochondral lesions of the talus, and fractures all related to the foot and ankle.

Dr. Seaworth is excited to call Knoxville home and cheer on The University of Tennessee Vols! She enjoys hiking with her dog in the Smokies and discovering new restaurants in the surrounding area.

University Orthopedic Surgeons Provides Free Foot Exams, Shoes, and Socks to the Needy

Dr. Seaworth provided foot exams and distributed shoes as part of the Our Hearts to Your Soles program at Lost Sheep Ministries' Under the Bridge event on Wednesday, December 2.

“Dr. Seaworth performed flat foot surgery on my left foot. She suggested many things I tried before surgery (physical therapy, new shoes, and inserts). At each of my appointments, Dr. Seaworth was always very thorough. She always explained what was happening and what to expect with the surgery and what to expect after surgery. On each visit, she ever asked if I had any questions or concerns. I left each visit knowing all my questions got answered. Thank you, Dr. Seaworth!”
