Dr. Abimbola Johnson, Podiatrist Los Angeles, University Foot and Ankle Institute

Our newest podiatrist at University Foot and Ankle Institute is Dr. Abimbola Johnson, who relocated to the Los Angeles area from St. Paul, Minnesota.


Dr. Johnson took his undergraduate degree at Loyola University Chicago, where he played Division II rugby and was also involved in social justice clubs aimed at helping younger students prepare for college.


Upon graduation, he entered Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine, where he served as president of the practice management club and volunteered as coordinator at the Free Foot Clinic in Chicago. He served his residency at Regions Hospital/Health Partners in St. Paul.


The doctor began podiatry shortly after college, working as a medical assistant. “I loved the care we provided patients,” he says. “We were able to provide immediate relief for most conditions, and also long-term care for chronic pathologies. I enjoyed the variety of conditions that we treated.”


Dr. Johnson provides comprehensive medical and surgical care for a wide spectrum of foot and ankle conditions, including common and complex disorders and injuries. The doctor is uniquely qualified to detect the early stages of disease that exhibit warning signs in the lower extremities, such as diabetes, arthritis, and cardiovascular disease.


In addition to healing conditions that may pose an ongoing threat to a patient’s overall health, the doctor places further emphasis on sports-related pathologies such as sprains, fractures, and overuse injuries.


Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Dr. Johnson moved to the United States in 1997 and lived in Chicago.


Though not actively taking part in competitive sports currently, Dr. Johnson considers himself an avid fan of the Chicago Bears. He also enjoys hiking on weekends with his wife, 18-month-old child, and their Boston terrier.


Dr. Johnson can be seen at our Santa Barbara location.
