Dr. Omar Yaldo is a fellowship-trained Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Surgeon. The complex anatomy of the foot and ankle, the biomechanics of the gait cycle, and the variety of problems that can affect the lower extremity are what drew him to become a foot and ankle surgeon. Someone can be born with a deformity, can sustain an injury, or can develop problems such as arthritis; and he enjoys being able to treat all these different conditions and getting his patients back to doing what they love.

Dr. Yaldo's approach to treating his patients is to first treat patients through conservative, non-surgical treatment options when possible and only to recommend surgery as a last resort unless it is necessary for a specific condition, such as a fracture. 

Dr. Yaldo is originally from Michigan and has moved to California to enjoy the weather and the outdoors. He attended medical school at the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. He completed his Orthopedic Surgery Residency at Spectrum Health through Michigan State University. He then completed his fellowship training for Foot and Ankle Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where he helped provide care for the University of Pittsburgh student-athletes, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Pittsburgh Ballet.

In his free time, Dr. Yaldo enjoys playing golf, weight-lifting, fishing, hiking, walking, and playing recreational basketball.

Dr. Yaldo is an active member of the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society and currently serves on the AOFAS Young Physicians Committee as well as the AOFAS Membership Committee.

Dr. Yaldo's Healthcare Philosophy

My focus is to restore function and mobility while decreasing my patient's level of pain by using modern, evidence-based techniques to treat my patients.  I first utilize conservative, non-surgical treatments and only when these treatments do not alleviate the pain do I recommend foot or ankle surgery.  

Dr. Yaldo's Areas of Expertise

My surgical interests are minimally invasive surgical techniques, arthroscopic surgery, as well as modern total ankle replacement.  My conservative treatments involve bracing/orthotics, corticosteroid injections, platelet rich plasma injections (PRP injections), hydrodissection, and extracorporeal shockwave therapy.
