Dr. Robert J Joseph II creates a strong connection with his patients by informing and educating them about their medical condition, accommodating their needs, and providing a positive and satisfying experience. He is the largest growing podiatrist in the elderly care population.

Dr. Robert Joseph continues to be at the forefront of emerging technology in foot care by performing non- invasive procedures, minimally invasive surgeries, PRP/ Cell Base therapy, and laser treatments for foot and ankle problems. These procedures/ treatments provide his patients with quicker recovery time and a minimal amount of discomfort. One of the minimally invasive procedures developed and perfected by Dr. Joseph is for ankle stabilization and sprain. Most foot and ankle surgeries performed by Dr. Joseph are done through a very minimal incision and patients can rehabilitate over the weekend and be back on their feet very quickly.
Additionally, Dr. Robert Joseph provides innovative, comfortable orthotics that are a pleasure to wear as they gently reduce problems associated with pressure points, muscle strain, and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips, and spine. Over time, custom orthotic support that is prescribed by Dr. Joseph brings our patients relief from fatigue and pain, allowing them to enjoy daily activities comfortably. In November 2013, Dr. Joseph was named Director of Podiatry at Mission Community Hospital in Panorama City, CA. He is also the co-founder of DoctorInsole which is the first over-the-counter custom-grade orthotic insole. Restore your natural alignment, promote better posture, and revive your feet.
When the foot sustains an injury there are several contributing variables. It is important to understand the cause of the injury as well as the foot mechanics of the patient. Dr. Joseph’s exam and diagnosis entail understanding these variables. With this information, Dr. Joseph can effectively treat the problem by implementing a comprehensive treatment plan, including a prescription for orthotics to improve foot alignment, as well as active rehabilitation to prevent further injury. Each patient is unique, and this integrated approach allows Dr. Joseph to treat each patient as an individual with a treatment plan and type of orthotic tailored to their specific need.
