Troy Foster, DO

Practices Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Performs EMG/Nerve conduction studies

Practices in the Arlington, Mansfield and Waxahachie locations

As a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Physiatrist, Dr. Troy Foster has been with AOA Orthopedic Specialists since July of 2015. He obtained his Doctor of Osteopathy degree from the University of N. Texas HSC-Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2011.

A lifelong Texan, Dr. Foster originated from Ovilla, TX and he actively volunteers in Medical Services at Mission Arlington, Mansfield Cares, and The Arthritis Foundation Preparticipation Physicals, Habitat for Humanity, and several other organizations.

In addition to his medical history, Dr. Foster also enjoys outdoor activities such as backpacking, skiing, fishing, hunting, and spending his free time with his 7-year-old triplets.  Dr. Foster describes himself as a “do-it-yourself man” with a passion for traveling as well as maintaining an active lifestyle outside of work.

When asked about his biggest challenge, Dr. Foster replied,“During my second year of high-demanding medical-training, my wife was on complete bed rest with our triplets for 13 weeks.  We lived in a 2-bedroom apartment with 2 Labradors.”  


Practicing Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Dr. Foster focuses on identifying and diagnosing causes of pain, planning out treatment, and managing levels of pain while actively working towards eliminating their source non-surgically. 


An initial visit will start with a physical and verbal examination to get a history of what symptoms are experienced, how long, medication history’s, and previous treatments. 

Dr. Foster is one of two doctors in the group that perform EMG/Nerve conduction studies.  These studies are used to diagnose nerve disorders involving impingement and damage.  In this study it will be determined if and where a nerve impingement exists, the extent of the impingement, and the extent of the damage that has occurred and where.


Treatments provided includes specialized exercise, steroid therapies such as oral, local injection, and x-ray guided injections into the spine under anesthesia, nerve blocks, nerve ablations, and, for chronic pain that fails to respond to anything else, he can preform a trials of implantable devices that override nerve signaling of pain.
