Each foot has 26 bones, 19 muscles, 33 joints, and hundreds (yes, hundreds!) of combined tendons and ligaments. That’s a lot of complexity! It also means that when your feet are hurting, you should see a doctor who thoroughly understands how each and every component works together to let you stand, walk, move, and play without pain.
Dr. Bruce Scudday and his team in El Paso specialize in foot care. We offer comprehensive treatment for feet and ankles, with a focus on helping you return to health as quickly and simply as possible. If you’re hurting, we can help.
