Dr. Yi provides both nonoperative and operative treatment strategies for the whole gamut of foot & ankle problems.

Dr. Yi completed his general orthopedic surgery training at the prestigious University of Washington and Harborview Medical Center where he served as the administrative chief resident in addition to honing his surgical skills and clinical acumen under world-renowned leaders in orthopedic surgery. He then selected for additional training at Harvard Brigham & Women’s Hospital, where he honed a diverse set of Foot & Ankle surgical skills under the mentorship of leaders in the field. He is well-trained in procedures ranging from novel minimally invasive techniques to major reconstructive procedures such as total ankle arthroplasty and deformity correction.
