Dr. Dharmesh “Dan” Bhakta
and Dr. Keyvan Ganz
Accent Podiatry Associates
For more than a decade, Dr. Dharmesh “Dan” Bhakta and Dr. Keyvan Ganz have been North Texas’ most reliable podiatrists. At Accent Podiatry Associates, they provide personalized, comprehensive care, from infants with congenital deformities to seniors who want to be active and pain-free.
Dr. Bhakta and Dr. Ganz address injury prevention as well as treatment of health issues involving the foot and ankle – from educating patients about biomechanics to wound care, creating custom orthotics and minimally invasive surgery. The doctors want their patients to think of foot and ankle medical care as the foundation that supports the health of the whole body.
“I encourage all ages to come in for an appointment for the knowledge, even if they are not having pain,” says Dr. Ganz.
Dr. Ganz has extensive experience and expertise in the area of sports medicine. He emphasizes the importance of preventing foot injuries in children all the way through seniors. Injury prevention is important to athletes and those who exercise to lose weight.
“The feet are the foundation. Biomechanics affect the knees and hips, the whole body. Everything else holds up better if the foundation is good,” he says.
Dr. Bhakta, whose practice is surgically oriented, takes pride in being able to save limbs through podiatric treatment. Pediatricians regularly refer patients to Dr. Bhakta, who encourages parents to have their child’s feet and ankles evaluated and get their questions answered about their child’s health needs. He also is an expert in woundcare and is pleased to be able to offer patients comprehensive care with many treatment options
Dr. Bhakta has a passion for taking care of people. “They just happen to be people with foot and ankle issues,” he said. “I get special joy and happiness from resolving patients’ pain, resolving concerns and deformity. There’s a real sense of accomplishment that comes from helping people get back on their feet.”
The doctors believe in one-on-one consultations, listening to patients’ concerns, personal treatment plans and following through with patients until they have achieved their maximum potential. Because Accent Podiatry Associates provides the full range of foot and ankle care, patients rely upon Dr. Bhakta and Dr. Ganz as their podiatrists for life.
