We emphasize a team approach to foot and ankle care, treating common problems such as calluses and bunions as well as serious injuries and disorders. Many foot and ankle problems can be remedied with conservative care, including correctional orthotic devices. Our physicians also treat a variety of serious injuries and disorders using sophisticated surgical techniques such as internal fixation, ankle arthroscopy, and ankle replacement.

Eisenhower Desert Orthopedic Center provides treatment of the entire spectrum of hand and upper extremity conditions from complex hand reconstruction to rotator cuff repairs. In order to successfully treat injuries to a complicated mechanism like the hand, our surgeons are skilled in a combination of techniques - orthopedic surgery, microsurgery, vascular and plastic surgery.

Joint Replacement

Our physicians perform more than 800 joint replacements each year, putting Eisenhower Desert Orthopedic Center in the top one percent in volume of joint replacements performed in the United States by a single orthopedic group.
