Specialized Foot and Ankle Care Makes A Difference
The foot and ankle structure is home to more than 33 joints, 26 bones, and 100+ ligaments, tendons, and muscles. When you consider this, it’s no surprise that a lot can go wrong with your feet. This is why it takes a highly trained individual to care for such a complicated structure.
Podiatry is a medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the foot and ankle. Individuals who specialize in this area of medicine are called podiatrists. A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (known as a DPM). Podiatrists spend years in school and training to gain the knowledge, experience, and expertise necessary to effectively care for their patients.
Our Podiatrist, Dr. Nay, and the North Canyon Foot and Ankle team can provide everything from simple treatments to complex surgical interventions. No matter what ails you, our team is ready to help you choose the best treatment to address whatever condition is affecting your foot or ankle.
