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.

    Exceptional care. Very professional, no BS, exactly what I was told would happen, has happened. How often does that happen in the real world? Rarely, but it did here and I am very happy and grateful for that.

    After years of chronic plantar fasciitis I'd given up running, stopped going to the park with my kids and couldn't dance with my wife. Grocery shopping meant icing my feet afterwards. I had been to 3 other podiatrists...
