Virtual Consultations makes UFAI’s Expertise Available to All

Virtal Consultation, Foot and Ankle Conditions, Second Option

Many patients learn about University Foot and Ankle Institute from a friend or reading about our work in the media or through online research. But what happens if they don’t live near any of our Southern California locations?

 

Some travel to see us from around the world using our Fly In Program. But we realize that this option can be expensive as well as challenging to travel to Southern California for treatment.

 

As a result of patient requests, we are pleased to offer a virtual consultation where you can "visit" our nationally recognized doctors to learn what's wrong with your foot or ankle or to get a second opinion before proceeding with a course of treatment near you.

 

Our expert opinions are drawn from decades of experience, by performing tens of thousands of foot and ankle surgeries and our leadership in both treatment research and development of new treatment modalities.

The Advantages of a Qualified Second Opinion

When your orthopedic health is on the line, it’s always a good idea to get a second opinion from another expert. Getting a fresh pair of eyes on your condition can cut down on human error. A second opinion decreases the risk of an incorrect diagnosis and can help you avoid costly, unnecessary treatments and surgeries.

 

Most doctors recommend searching out a second opinion, especially for complicated or recurring issues. It’s important to get multiple perspectives on these problems. A diagnosis from a second doctor can sometimes be completely different from your original diagnosis. In many cases, a patient’s condition requires the seasoned eyes of a foot and ankle specialists with decades of experience. That is what University Foot and Ankle Institute bring to your table.

 

Here are a few common conditions and treatments that usually benefit from a second opinion:

  • Previous unsuccessful treatment or surgery

  • Chronic ankle instability and reconstructive tendon repair

  • Bunion surgery

  • Ankle replacement

  • Flat foot reconstruction

  • Ankle and big toe arthritis

  • Regenerative therapies: stem cell, amniotic cell, and platelet rich plasma

 

Our foot and ankle specialists are available remotely to help you consider all of the options available to you. A second opinion can assist you in making the right decision for you or your loved one, putting you on track towards effective treatment and a quick recovery.

 

UFAI’s virtual consultation system makes getting a second opinion easier than ever. Please complete this form if you would like to schedule a virtual consultation.

    Dr. B gave me excellent advisement regarding several bruised toe nails on my right foot. His assistant Alex trimmed my toe nails. I was a little scared at first, but he had very good technique and it didn't hurt at all.

    Everyone was very pleasant, and the doctor spoke and listened without typing into a database. Very knowledgeable doctor. I would definitely recommend Dr. Campbell to my "running" friends.
