Dr. Bruce Ford - Podiatrist

With one forth of all of the bones in our body located in our feet; along with miles of blood vessels and nerves, the human foot is an engineering marvel that has never been duplicated. The foot must be able to bear loads of hundreds of pounds and at one moment in the gait cycle be a loose moveable structure that can adapt to terrain changes and in the next moment; a rigid lever that will propel you into the next step. Is it any wonder that with these stresses day in and day out that our feet tend to wear out long before other parts of our bodies?

IS IT ALSO ANY WONDER; WITH ALL OF THESE COMPLEXITIES, A SEPARATE MEDICAL SPECIALTY WAS NEEDED TO TREAT THE FOOT?

For almost 40 years Dr. Ford has been treating the injuries, diseases, and deformities of this complex structure. With this experience coupled with decades of training and Board Certification in Foot Surgery; it can probably be said: "there isn't much that we haven't seen".

Dr. Ford is a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association, a Diplomate in the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, an Associate in the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, and a Fellow in the Association of Peripheral Nerve Surgeons.

Dr. Ford has also received the designation of Master Surgeon from the Graham International Institute of Implant Surgery.

Dr. Ford has also been privileged to have been accepted as a Fellow for training and certification at the Dellon Institute for Peripheral Nerve Surgery under A. Lee Dellon, M.D. Dr. Dellon is a professor in the departments of Plastic and Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

As a result of that training and certification, Dr. Ford is one of only 300 surgeons in the world certified to perform the Dellon Decompression surgery for peripheral neuropathy. He is also the first and only surgeon in Northern Nevada so trained and certified. Dr. Ford is also the only surgeon in Northern Nevada to become certified in the Pressure Specified Sensory Device, a state of the art method of testing nerve function.
