Dr. Hormozi has an excellent surgical success rate using Arthroscopic foot and ankle surgery. In addition Dr. Hormozi assists and teaches other surgeons about Arthroscopic Surgery.

Arthroscopic Surgery is performed by making two small 1 cm incisions at the surgical site, then instruments are inserted through these small incisions and the procedure is then performed.  The recovery from Arthroscopic Surgery is extremely fast when compared to the traditional open procedure.  Arthroscopic Surgery incisions are much smaller, therefore there is much less damage to the soft tissue, minimal scarring, and less likelihood for nerve and vessel damage.

Dr. Hormozi, our podiatrist Tarzana CA, uses the most advanced Arthroscopic Surgical techniques. In most cases, patients are able to walk immediately after surgery in a surgical boot, and by the third week most patients are back to regular shoe gear.


Dr. Hormozi performs the latest and most advanced foot and ankle surgical procedures in Los Angeles which allows patients to be able to walk immediately after surgery, return to regular activities, and wear regular shoes faster.
