Advancing the Best Treatment Technologies: a commitment to our patients

When we opened our doors over a decade ago, our goal was to provide leading-edge foot care, from start to finish.

 

Our commitment to education, state-of-the-art technology and progressive diagnostic techniques puts us on research teams and lecturing throughout North America and Europe.

 

There are no “one-size fits all” treatments, we treat each patient individually because each foot and ankle is truly different. Evaluating your physical condition is part of a treatment plan, but so is your lifestyle and the physical challenges your professional and personal life will present while healing. This is what true patient care is all about.

  • Years of research of the complexities of the ankle joint led us to improved implants and materials. We're one of a few US centers with expertise in all types of Total Ankle Arthroplasty.

  • The PARS technique for an Achilles tendon rupture is a minimally invasive technology that results in higher success rates, less scarring and a quicker, stronger recovery.

  • BioCartilage is a revolutionary treatment of cartilage damage that results in a stronger repair and reduced long term pain.

  • The InternalBrace significantly strengthens traditional tendon repair methods and decreases recovery time.

  • Cartiva is a revolutionary surgical implant designed to replace the damaged cartilage surface of the great toe joint.

  • DeNovo graft requires only one surgery, which can be performed arthroscopically and offers remarkable regenerative powers.

  • Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy heals using platelets from your own blood, and is becoming known as a break-through cure for hard-to-heal tendons.

  • UFAI's one of the only centers in the country to offer both the revolutionary high-intensity and low-intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (EWST) for heal pain.

  • Stem cell therapy is a regenerative treatment option used to successfully treat patients with degenerative arthritis, tendon and ligament damage.

  • Arthrosurface replaces missing cartilage with an implant so the joint stays intact and allows for pain relief and motion in the big toe joint.

  • Tenex Health's procedure has been very successful treating chronic tendon and fascia conditions in a minimally invasive way that has been impossible until now.

  • The Topaz Microdebrider wand uses radio frequency energy to cause microscopic “trauma” to scar tissue increasing blood flow to the affected area and healing of the sore tendon.

  • RelēF is a non-invasive procedure to that stimulates the body’s natural healing process by inciting the wound healing response, RelēF prompts damaged tissue to heal from within.

  • Cryotherapy Nerve Treatment is a rapid and limited deep freezing of the affected area. Nerve and fascia pain can often be resolved with a simple and comfortable office procedure.

  • Orthotics offer effective treatment  and relief for many conditions such as ankle instability, plantar fasciitis, bunions and more.

  • UFAI is the only location in Southern California to offer the diagnostic imaging technology, pedCAT. This CT scanner is the first true weight bearing diagnostic imaging machine in the world.

  • Our open MRI is designed for imaging of the extremities so only the joint being imaged is inside the scanner and the patient is comfortably outside.
