Los Angeles podiatrist, Kamran Jamshidinia, DPM, FACFAS, is the medical director of the Bunion Center of Excellence, a department of La Peer Health Systems. Unlike traditional approaches for treating bunions, Dr. Jamshidinia’s team specializes in minimally invasive procedures that require the least amount of recovery time.

"Any surgery performed on a patient’s foot will have a major impact on his or her life," said Dr. Jamshidinia, who performs bunion surgery in Los Angeles. "That’s why we have conducted extensive research to innovate less invasive treatments, so we can allow patients to return to their normal lives as soon as possible."

Some of the state-of-the-art procedures offered at the Bunion Surgery Center of Excellence include bunionectomies, hammertoe repair, athletic foot and ankle injury repair, joint replacement surgery for arthritic joints, and surgical treatment of chronic diabetic foot ulcers. Dr. Jamshidinia also offers non-surgical treatment options for less severe bunions and other foot conditions, including orthotic arch supports and splints which aim to delay or prevent ultimate bunion surgery in some cases.

"The most important advice I can give patients with bunions (and other conditions of the foot) is to seek treatment in their earliest stages," said Dr. Jamshidinia. "Bunions progress over time, and the longer a patient waits to start treatment, the more likely that surgery will be needed to correct it."

Dr. Jamshidinia also advises patients to make sure they can take time off work or other daily activities to ensure the most successful recovery from bunion surgery. For patients seeking the best bunion surgeon in Los Angeles, Dr. Jamshidinia recommends online research prior to scheduling an appointment.

"Reading patient reviews is an important tool for patients to find the right podiatrist," said Dr. Jamshidinia. "I always encourage people to use every resource they have when making important health care choices. In our office we provide patients with transparency in our work, allowing patients to not only see our comprehensive post operative before and after photo gallery but also speak with and see other real patients in various stages of their rapid healing process from surgery. We are in the process of also creating a comprehensive video testimonial from real patients who have undergone surgical correction."

Kamran Jamshidinia, DPM, FACFAS is the medical director of the podiatry department at La Peer Health Systems, and has specialized training in all areas of foot and ankle surgery. Board-certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, Dr. Jamshidinia is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. Dr. Jamshidinia possesses unique expertise in cosmetic foot surgery, with special emphasis on cosmetic approach to bunion correction. Other areas of specialization include minimally invasive hammertoe repair, athletic foot and ankle injuries, sports medicine, the latest technology in custom orthotic arch supports, joint replacement surgery for arthritic joints and state-of-the-art treatments for chronic diabetic foot ulcers.
