During his residency, Dr. Sana received extensive training in wound care, diabetic limb salvage, management of emergency trauma and complicated foot infections. He was trained by more than twenty podiatric surgeons and foot and ankle orthopedists in the diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle conditions, with extensive training in both conservative and surgical management. Dr. Sana has been involved with research conducted by the prestigious Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, AZ and his work has been published by publications such as BNI (Barrow Neurological Institute) Quarterly.Dr. Sana recently returned to Phoenix, AZ where he grew up and attended Arizona State University and where he received two masters' degrees, Master in Public Health and Masters in Health Administration at A.T.
