Don't let foot problems ruin your life

Our talented staff of podiatrists is experienced at treating all types of foot pain. Highlights include:




Experts at minimally invasive foot and ankle surgery

Our DPMs realize that foot and ankle surgery is often the only way to rectify a foot pain. Rest assured that we will discuss all of your treatment options prior to surgery.


UFAI podiatrists perform 95 percent of their procedures at an outpatient surgery center. Only major reconstructive surgeries are performed in a hospital setting.


Perhaps the most common surgeries performed are bunion, hammer toe, ankle ligament, and Achilles tendon repair.


Our ankle surgeons specialize in ankle arthritis, ankle deformity, and severe ankle injuries.


Two options are an ankle fusion or a state-of-the-art ankle replacement (also called "Total Ankle Replacement"). Both choices can change your quality of life. When you give our receptionist your appointment reason make sure you tell them you heard about these state-of-the-art surgeries 


The benefits of outpatient surgery are many and include time, lower infection rates, patient satisfaction, and acceptance by your insurance group. The majority of our surgeries are done with nerve-block anesthesia. Patients are numb for a day or two and they are able to control the pain.

Non-surgical foot care in Los Angeles

In addition to expert surgery techniques, our podiatrists are adept at sports medicine, physical therapy, custom-made orthotics, x-rays, and innovative treatments such as platelet-rich plasma injections (PRP) to help the body heal itself.


PRP injections help the body regenerate soft tissue. The injections increase the blood supply to the injured area and decrease your inflammatory response.
