Advancing the Best Treatment Technologies: a commitment to our patients

Updated 2/27/2024

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.

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

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

  • With Bunionplasty, there is minimal pain, minimal incisions, stable fixation, and rapid recovery time. As a bonus, the procedure can correct any size bunion.

  • 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.

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

  • Lapiplasty bunion surgery addresses all three dimensions of the bunion and results in quicker recovery, less scarring, and minimal to no pain.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Unfortunately, not all toe surgeries have a successful outcome. Sadly, about 30% of our surgeries are correcting the failed outcomes of others.

  • 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.

  • This innovative medical device’s targeted approach to pain relief provides an excellent option for those struggling with chronic foot pain or ankle pain.

  • 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.

  • No matter how cautious you are, cuts, scrapes, and even serious wounds happen. When these wounds happen on your toes, feet, or ankles, they can be difficult to heal and very painful.
