Dr. David Swain joined First Coast Cardiovascular Institute in October 2013 after practicing in Jacksonville for four years. As a podiatric surgeon specializing in wound care and limb salvage, Dr. Swain provides his patients with cutting-edge, proactive treatments that increase the likelihood of healing and amputation prevention. He is known for his down-to-earth personality and the compassionate care he provides for his patients.
Dr. Swain attended Georgia Southern University, where he graduatedmagna cum laudewith a BS in biology and a minor in chemistry. During his second year of college, he watched his grandfather go through the long and emotionally painful process of having diabetic ulcers, peripheral arterial disease, and a leg amputation. It was at this time that Dr. Swain realized that helping people prevent leg amputations would be his life’s work. After spending time with several podiatrists who specialized in preventing diabetic amputations, Dr. Swain decided to become a podiatrist.
