OUR FOCUS: ON YOU
The Foot and Ankle Institute of San Francisco is a specialty practice devoted to state of the art conservative and reconstructive surgical techniques for all foot and ankle problems. Our Doctors' experience has involved some of the more complex cases imaginable. And every day, these doctors have just one goal: providing state of the art care for patients like you.
STATE OF THE ART CITY, STATE OF THE ART PRACTICE
Because The Foot and Ankle Institute of San Francisco is a specialty practice, every aspect of the patient experience has been designed to create the best possible outcome. From our state of the art musculoskeletal ultrasound, in office flouroscopy unit, and one of a kind practice management system, the practice was designed around the question of identifying and providing the best technology and care available today.
SURGERIES THAT ARE RARE AT OTHER PRACTICES ARE ROUTINE HERE
Acute injuries, chronic symptoms or deformity correction, we provide surgical solutions for those in need. Dr. Metaxas brings a unique skill set to the table, combining a robust background in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, advanced deformity planning and correction, minimally invasive and arthroscopic techniques, as well as basic Ilizarov and advanced Taylor Spatial Frame external fixation applications. All focused on the foot and ankle, all focused on you.
LEADING PAIN MANAGEMENT AND REHABILITATION
Dr. Metaxas collaborates with local anesthesiologists and anesthesia groups to provide more advanced regional anesthetics, which have long been associated with less post-operative pain and less nausea. Even more significantly, a lower incidence of blood clots, less blood loss, and less of an inflammatory response have also been reported. This all results in quicker recovery times. We collaborate with some of the best foot and ankle focused physical therapists in San Francisco. Focused physical therapy can often be the difference between a good and an excellent surgical result.
INNOVATION HAPPENS HERE FIRST
Dr. Metaxas' research interests have involved principal investigation into the application of new surgical technologies to improve outcomes. With an emphasis on evidence-based medicine, we are committed to the development of new techniques, the advancement of research, and active participation in education of patients, established medical professionals, residents in-training, and medical students.
NEW APPLICATIONS, OLD FASHIONED COMMUNICATION
Perhaps the most important part of our practice is good old fashioned communication. We partner with our patients to create a comprehensive surgical approach, emphasizing communication, focused on the surgical procedure, technology involved, post operative recovery, therapy, and outcome.
OUR PATIENTS RECOMMEND US TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY
We strive to be the type of doctor's office that we would want to go to. We're constantly checking to ensure that we provide the highest level of patient care available.
