What Makes the Premier Podiatry & Orthopedics Difference?

We know you have more than one choice to take yourself or your family to for podiatric and orthopedic care. That’s a choice you should take seriously, and the fact you’re reading this right now clues us in that you do!

At Premier Podiatry & Orthopedics, our doctors and our staff take great measures to provide our patients the best in diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care. We welcome all patients to our offices in Carmichael and Roseville, with a commitment to finding the most effective ways to address their personal needs.

You don’t have to take just our word for it, of course. You can review our Testimonials Page to see stories of other patients’ experiences, as well as our reviews on Google and other listings.

We are always striving to provide more (and better) services than you might expect from a typical practice. Here are a few ways we are doing just that.

An Orthopedic Advantage

Let’s get a big one out of the way first: the “orthopedic” part of our name. 

We provide orthopedic services for the full body in addition to podiatry care. At times, the two are separate, but you might be surprised to learn how many times they’re not.

Orthopedics concerns conditions of our musculoskeletal structure, of which our feet and ankles serve as the foundation. There are many times when pain in the knees, hips, or lower back can be attributed to an abnormality in the structure of the foot. Just like a house, a flaw in the foundation can start to affect how weight and forces are distributed higher up!

Not every problem is orthopedically related, of course, and we provide expert treatment for all other types of problems that can afflict the foot and ankle. But a vast number of people go through their daily lives with chronic pain due to musculoskeletal problems, and we know how it all fits together. Whether the cause is sudden trauma or an inherited abnormality in structure, we are the go-to practice for proper help.

Extensive Surgical Expertise (When Needed)

We are not a practice that pushes surgery first. If a problem can be effectively addressed via conservative (i.e. non-surgical) methods, that will be our first call to action.

But the reality of the world is that sometimes conservative methods just won’t work in some situations. At those times, you need a doctor who not only fully understands surgical options, but can discuss them in an easy and personable manner.

We take the time to ensure each patient is fully prepared—both physically and mentally—before surgery. That includes answering any and all questions, as well as providing advice on how to set up your home for recovery, if needed.

Our doctors specialize in different aspects of surgery, with specialties in podiatry and orthopedics. Our bodies are complex structures, so having such specificity is beneficial!

Dr. Ripp, for example, completed his 3-year surgical residency at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, one of the top training programs in the United States. He has advanced training in microneurovascular surgery, reconstructive surgery, and total ankle replacement, just to name a few. Dr. Fujii has specializations in arthroscopy, including cartilage repair surgeries and surgical treatment of sports injuries. And that’s just two of our doctors!

After a surgery, we are here to help with post-op attention and rehabilitation as well. It is vitally important that care is seen through all the way to full recovery.

Helping Patients Feel Listened To

Our practice depends on the satisfaction of our patients. If we do not help them in ways that improve their lives, why are we even here? We simply wouldn’t last.

We think about patient satisfaction before you even set foot inside our office. We try to cut waiting room times down as much as possible for new patients by providing them access to our registration form before coming in for an appointment. Why spend time in the waiting room filling one out if you can take care of it at your convenience beforehand? We want to get to the important “helping you” part just as quickly as you do!

When you are in the exam room, it is also far from a one-way conversation. We not only want to determine what is going on to cause you problems, but also learn more about just how it is affecting your daily life.

There are many potential routes to treatment for different conditions. We not only want to employ one that is effective, but also best suits your lifestyle and daily needs. When a treatment not only helps you, but complements you, then we’ve had a smashing success!

In that vein, please never hesitate to ask us questions in the exam room. In fact, bring a list of questions you want to ask so you don’t forget any. That is not putting a burden on us by any means. In fact, in many cases it can provide us with deeper insight into your situation.

We’d Love to Be Your Choice for Care in Sacramento County
