About

Bio

Hi, I'm Steve Geller from Phoenix, Arizona. Through my private practice at Desert Foot Surgeons, I am dedicated to relieving pain and deformity so that you can continue to live a vital and active life. Our approach is called "personalized foot care" meaning you are part of the team. I will tell you what science says we can do to relieve your pain and/or deformity. You will tell me what your life demands of you on a daily basis. Together we will choose the best possible treatment for you and only you. Feet are like snowflakes, no two are alike. Don't let someone tell you that your problem cannot be treated because of the cards life has dealt you. Come see me at Desert Foot Surgeons in Phoenix, Arizona
