The Caribbean Foot and Ankle Institute focuses on treating and managing orthopaedic all problems arising from the lower limb. Our internationally trained surgeons have extensive experience in all orthopaedic treatments. As it relates to the Caribbean we have paid special attention to the treatment of wounds, particularly those associated with diabetic foot infections. Treatments are based on industry best practice and the most current internationally accepted guidelines.
There are too many Caribbean mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters that do not receive proper medical care. This is especially true in the treatment and management of Diabetic foot conditions as well as other issues involving the lower limb. There are unnecessary amputations, falsely advertised quick fix methods to common problems and not even attention paid to the most serious ones. We aim to change all that and provide state of the art, industry leading care and treatments so that we can save not just your feet, but your quality of life. The motivation for this institute was personal and driven by passion, simply because a lot of our founding members and team saw their parents, siblings and grandparents not afforded state of the art treatment and were forced to sacrifice their limbs due to diabetic foot conditions and forced amputations. There is a better way. There is the COFAI way. At the Caribbean Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Institute you take back the quality of your life for yourself or loved ones. See our services here. Your healing is our success.
