Advancing the Best Treatment Technologies: a commitment to our patients

Updated 7/7/2020

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.

  • Amniotic fluid is an all-natural regenerative medicine treatment that is rich in naturally occurring growth factors and can greatly aid the healing of stubborn pain or injuries.

     

  • These are two very effective surgical options for advanced ankle arthritis, ankle deformity or a severe ankle injury.

  • Arthrosurface replaces missing cartilage with an implant so the joint stays intact and allows for pain relief and motion in the big toe joint.

  • BioCartilage is a revolutionary treatment of cartilage damage that results in a stronger repair and reduced long term pain.

  • One surgery does not fit all. Every bunion surgery is different and should be tailored to each patient's needs.

  • Cartiva was a new surgical implant to treat hallux rigidus but is no longer offered as it had an unacceptable failure rate.

  • 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.

  • DeNovo graft requires only one surgery, which can be performed arthroscopically and offers remarkable regenerative powers.

  • Botulinum toxin (Botox) paralyzes damaged nerve so they can no longer transmit pain signals to the brain.

  • The InternalBrace significantly strengthens traditional tendon repair methods and decreases recovery time.

  • We are proud to be one of the first practices in Southern California to offer LenevaTM, a brand-new fat grafting system for ball of foot pain.

  • 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.

  • Ossiofiber is a revolutionary bio-degradable polymer and mineral fiber that replaces metal surgical screws and grows into human bone.

  • 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.

  • UFAI is the only location in Southern California to offer diagnostic imaging technology, pedCAT. This CT scanner is the first true weight-bearing diagnostic imaging machine in the world.

  • 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.

  • RelēF is a non-invasive procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing process by inciting the wound healing response, RelēF prompts damaged tissue to heal from within.

  • Stem cell therapy is a regenerative treatment option used to successfully treat patients with degenerative arthritis, tendon, and ligament damage.

  • 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.

  • SoftWave’s patented sound wave therapy is an exciting, breakthrough treatment option in the field of regenerative medicine for the foot and ankle.

  • Tenex Health's procedure has been very successful in treating chronic tendon and fascia conditions in a minimally invasive way that has been impossible until now.

  • TenJet System is a breakthrough technology that effectively treats chronic tendon pain by removing damaged tissue without the need for surgery.

     

  • The Topaz Microdebrider wand uses radiofrequency energy to cause microscopic “trauma” to scar tissue increasing blood flow to the affected area and healing of the sore tendon.
