Advancing the Best New Technologies: A commitment to our patients

When we opened the doors to our practice over a decade ago, our goal at University Foot and Ankle Institute (UFAI) was to provide leading-edge foot care, from start to finish. We have met our objective by employing the most-advanced technologies available with truly individualized patient care.


Because of our commitment to education in state-of-the-art technology and progressive diagnostic techniques, UFAI physicians are sought after throughout North America and Europe to participate in leading-edge research. As a recognized leader in foot and ankle care, our group has lectured in almost every state in the country and around the world.


There are no “one-size fits all” treatments at UFAI, we treat each patient individually because each foot and ankle is truly different. Evaluating a patient’s physical condition is just one part of creating an effective treatment plan. We believe it is essential to also learn about each patients lifestyles and the physical challenges that that both their professional and personal lives wil present them while healing.

I hesitated to see a doctor because I thought I would be told to stop running... when I saw Dr. Franson, I got encouragement instead of discouragement. Suzanne at Physical Therapy not only got rid of the pain, but she also taught me how to avoid further injury. Foot & Ankle Institute goes the extra mile for their patients. Suzanne helped me go 13.1 miles! On March 20th, I completed the Moab Half Marathon without any pain in my legs. Kerri
