  • Ankle Fusion & Replacement

    Suffer from severe ankle arthritis or deformity? Conservative treatments didn't help? You have two very effective surgical options, but neither is right for everyone. Learning which is best takes a very experienced surgeon. That's where UFAI comes in.

  • Plantar Fasciitis & Heel Pain

    We're leaders in the treatment of, and product development for, plantar fasciitis. Less than 5% of our plantar fascia patients need advanced treatments, less than 2% ever need surgery. We offer the highest success rates with the very best care anywhere.

  • Bunion Correction

    UFAI’s at the forefront of bunion treatment in the US, providing individualized state-of-the-art treatment options like our new minimally invasive bunion surgery, Lapiplasty, and all-natural bunion correction.

  • Ball of Foot Pain

    Ball of Foot Pain can be caused by several conditions, including Morton's neuroma and plantar plate injuries. They often form because of an injury and are painful conditions that should not be ignored.

  • Achilles Tendon Injury & Repair

    Decades of Achilles' tendon repair experience has led us to offer the most technologically advanced treatments available today. Our dramatic improvements in the outcomes of Achilles tendon injuries and tears are best in class.

  • Foot and Ankle Arthritis

    We've helped revolutionize treatments for a myriad of foot and ankle arthritic conditions. Working closely with device manufacturers we’ve helped in the development of new technologies and research for toe and ankle arthritis.
