Foot & Ankle
Our Foot and Ankle Program in Southern California cares for disorders, injuries and conditions that affect the feet and ankles. From heel pain to major joint damage—our experienced foot specialists give you the best care possible.
Our Approach to Foot Care
A team of specialists and support staff is devoted to your care. Our foot and ankle team—including three nationally recognized foot specialists—gathers regularly to make treatment plans for each patient. Other highlights of our program include:
Foot and Ankle Expertise
Our surgeons have decades of experience treating foot and ankle conditions. They give talks around the world and train the next generation of foot specialists. This expertise enables them to provide effective care—no matter how common or complicated your condition is.
Superior Nursing Care
Our nursing team has achieved Magnet Recognition® from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Magnet designation is the gold standard for nursing care—it means that patients experience more one-on-one time with nurses, faster recoveries and higher satisfaction with their care.
High Patient Satisfaction
Our surgical patients use a web-based tool to report their progress and satisfaction. This innovative tool is called the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS®). PROMIS helps your doctors better understand you while improving your quality of care.
Our surgeons improve patient care through research and clinical trials. One of our clinical trials studied the safety and effectiveness of outpatient total ankle replacement. Now, our patients experience excellent pain management, fewer complications and better outcomes overall.
