Faye E. Izadi

Dr. Faye Izadi was born and raised in San Diego county. She attended the University of California, Irvine, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences, with a minor in Sociology. She then moved to Chicago for her post-graduate studies, where she received her Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine from William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. Her residency training in Foot and Ankle Surgery was completed at Lakewood Regional Medical Center, with an added credential in Reconstructive Rearfoot & Ankle Surgery. 

Prior to her starting her post-graduate training in Chicago, Dr. Izadi devoted her time to research for the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, Irvine. The aim of this research was to define the beneficial effects of neural stem cell implants on radiation- and chemotherapy- induced tissue injury in the brain. From her involvement in these projects she is published in a number of peer-reviewed journals. Her goal is to continue her love for research even while in private practice. Most recently, she and Dr. Richie published a unique case report in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association. 

Dr. Izadi is board qualified in forefoot and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. She is a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association and the California Podiatric Medical Association. Her current hospital affiliations include Lakewood Regional Medical Center and Los Alamitos Medical Center. She has a particular interest in sports medicine, wound care, and reconstructive foot & ankle surgery. More importantly, her greatest priority and joy is in providing exceptional care to her patients.
