Updated 7/7/2020
UFAI Education Team

The UFAI Education Team is led by Dr. Bob Baravarian, DPM, FACFAS, Dr. Gary Briskin, DPM, FACFAS, and Dr. Justin Franson, DPM. They review all content published on this website, its blog, and UFAI's in-clinic patient materials. They also review all contributing writers’ content for medical and technical accuracy.

The UFAI Education Team works hard to empower our patients and website visitors with the most up-to-date information about foot and ankle conditions, treatment options, recovery, and injury prevention.

 

Our goal is to pass on truly useful information to our readers. We hope you enjoy our work and find it of value. Please let us know!
