Both work and active lifestyles make us more aware of our legs - and the limits pain and function can place on full participation.
We help to diagnose and address the complete range of adult and pediatric, orthopedic conditions. Staff privileges and out-patient procedures performed at the California Pacific Medical Center(CPMC) San Francisco. Objectives remain to resolve pain, stabilize injuries and/or arthritis, repair fractures, correct child disorders. Preference for trauma, sports medicine and industrial injuries with workers compensation. A balance between quickly providing relief and carefully weighing the choices is of primary concern via an accurate diagnosis. Advanced modalities in-office include ultrasound and fluoroscopy, but refer out for CT Scans, MRI and nuclear medicine studies. Many times, transient foot and ankle pain can simply be addressed without surgery, using medication, acupuncture, massage, pool-therapy, pilates and attention to arch supports with shoes. At times however when pain and/or dysfunction limit everyday activities, surgery is considered to repair, reconstruct, the soft joint tissues, tendons, ligaments, bones and nerves. Whether palliative care or complex surgery is recommended, patients and their families, employers and carriers can be certain they are in compassionate, skilled and expert hands.
