Testimonial on PRP injection
Howard Hewett of the hit band Shalamar had chronic heel pain and after cortisone shots, physical therapy and custom orthotics didn't resolve his problem, he opted for a Platelet injection which totally got rid of his heel pain. This method of treatment has replaced surgical intervention at my office, we have a 95% success rate!
I had battled with numbness and pain in my left leg and foot for 10 years. After one failed surgery I was told that I needed to have a portion of nerve removed in my leg to reduce my symptoms and that I would never be able to run again. I decided to get another opinion so I went to see Dr. Avakian. After receiving various treatments in his office my pain has reduced by 90% and after 10 years of a sedentary lifestyle I can now run & play basketball. Thank you Dr. Avakian for restoring a part of my life I thought I would never see again.

Having to deal with painful Bunions for years I decided to get a consultation for surgery. A friend of mine who recently had a Bunionectomy done by Dr. Avakian told me that she had minimal pain and was back to exercising after 2 weeks. Dr. Avakian informed me what type of procedure he felt would work for me and that I didn't need a cast or crutches. In fact I was able to walk the day after the surgery wearing a post op shoe. Well I'm happy to say the pain was minimal and my feet look great. I don't have to search for wide unattractive shoes anymore. Thanks so much Dr. Avakian.

I needed a new pair of Orthotics and noticed an ad in The Magazine of Santa Clarita for Custom Molded Orthotics. So I went to see Dr. Avakian and I have to say he is one the friendliest doctors I have ever met. He did a thorough exam on my feet and pinpointed my problematic issues. Two weeks later I received my orthotics and they are the most comfortable pair I have ever owned. Two thumbs up, a great all around experience.
