Dr. Kahan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kahan "I grew up in Southern California. I remain a Dodger, Angel, Rams and Kings (hockey) fan. Just can't get the kid out of me. I was exposed to quite a few things growing up in the Southern state, including chicken pox (LOL, HAHA, etc). I survived college at UC Davis, Podiatry School in Des Moines, IA and chose to start my working life in Sacrameno. I have lived in Roseville since 1993 and have been practicing in Sacramento since 1995. I am happily married with 3 great kids (all boys). As of this writing only 1 still in college, 1 graduated and working and 1 is married. In terms of my professional life, I take my profession much more seriously than myself. In other words, do your job well, but ALWAYS remember to laugh, smile and help others around you do the same. Life is too short to think otherwise. After 20 years in private practice I have been humbled by the internet reviews about my practice. When that changes, and I certainly hope it never will, then it will be time to hang up the white coat (don't wear one anyway). My treatment philosophy is quite simple. Everyone is equal, nobody deserves more or less because they have this or that insurance. There are conservative means to treat nearly every foot or ankle condition and that is the way I roll. If by chance, you do require surgery, I no longer perform any extensive procedures, but have some the best hands available to my patients at a moments notice. I look forward to meeting you, helping you or just answering any questions you may have that relate to the field of medicine. Our website gives you that opportunity to submit any information or questions prior to coming in. With the utmost sincerity, Dr. Kahan"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kahan "As a nonsurgical foot and ankle specialist my ultimate goal is to treat EVERY condition conservatively, but aggressively enough so surgery is not needed.  That is not always possible though.   I have a close network of doctors that are available for emergencies or elective surgery."
