The West Coast Center for Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine
Welcome to the West Coast Center for Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine. Our objective at the Sports Medicine Center is to treat all orthopedic problems and allow a return to optimum function through up-to-date conscientious medical care. Our center takes the conservative approach, with surgery as the last option. Most injuries can be treated with medication and physical therapy tailored to individual needs.

Most injuries sustained during walking, marching, and running activities are overuse injuries, such as stress fractures. The casual factors associated with stress fractures include training errors, anatomic factors, surfaces, and footwear.
Different hallux valgus deformities require different types of surgical correction. Incongruent metatarsophalangeal joints, greater hallux valgus angles (generally >30°), and metatarsus primus varus (>12°) are indications for a basilar metatarsal osteotomy with distal soft-tissue realignment.
This study was undertaken to compare the clinical evaluation of 15 patients who suffered inversion injuries of the ankle with the results found on magnetic resonance imaging within 48 hours of the injury.
It is believed that obese individuals may have an increased number of foot and ankle problems.The World Health Organization recommends a standard classification of adult overweight and obesity using the following body mass index (BMI) calculations:a BMI of 25.0 to 29.9 kg m2 is defined as overweight; a BMI of 30.0 kg per m2 or more is defined as obesity. The purpose of this paper was to report a survey of 1411 patients in an orthopaedic foot and ankle practice and compare the incidence of orthopaedic foot and ankle complaints with the BMI.
