University Foot and Ankle Institute Named Best Foot and Ankle Surgeons in California

Best Foot and Ankle Surgeons in California

University Foot and Ankle Institute (UFAI) has been honored as the Best Foot and Ankle Surgeons in California. This year’s Top Doctors Award places the ten-location practice ahead of the hundreds of other foot and ankle specialists practicing in the state.

What, you may ask, has allowed UFAI to stand head and shoulders above the rest? There’s more to it than just being impeccable surgeons. It’s also a team that surrounds the doctors and their patients that are there to help. It’s gifted physical therapists who personally guide their patients through their individual recoveries. It’s a trustful environment for patients from all walks of life who learn that their treatment plan is always personalized to them, their lifestyle and their physical condition.

“This award signifies that our entire practice stands out not just for our technical skills, but for how our entire team takes are our patients who entrust us with their care,” said Bob Baravarian, UFAI’s co-director. “It’s all about the complete patient experience.”

It is also worth noting that two physicians from University Foot and Ankle Institute also just received accolades from Los Angeles Magazine, being chosen among the Best Doctors in Los Angeles for foot and ankle medicine. “It brings to light how much the integrity and dedication of our doctors brings to the field of foot and ankle care,” said Gary Briskin, University Foot and Ankle Institute’s co-director.

University Foot and Ankle Institute boasts 10 convenient locations throughout Southern California, many that feature surgical suites, MRI, CT scanners and even on-site physical therapy clinics. Two more locations will be opening in early fall 2018 and another will follow in Northern California in the fourth quarter of this year.

“Virtually anyone can experience foot and ankle problems,” said Dr. Justin Franson, a longtime member of UFAI’s award winning group of foot and ankle experts. “We’re more than just sports medicine doctors, though we constantly keep professional and weekend athletes in the game. We’re more than just diabetic foot care specialists who get tremendous satisfaction keeping our patients out of trouble and preventing threats to their limbs. We’re more than pediatric podiatrists, though keeping kids active and safe is something we all absolutely love to do.”

“We’re more than a group of men and women who work hard to be the best foot and ankle specialists in California, let alone the country. What we are first and foremost is a group of caring people who put together a plan of action for our patients that is not only appropriate for their condition, but for their lifestyle too.”
