Village Podiatry Centers Acquires North Georgia Podiatry

Village Podiatry Centers announces the acquisition of North Georgia Podiatry in Canton, Georgia. Podiatrist, Stephen Byrne, was the primary podiatric care physician at North Georgia Podiatry at 224 Riverstone Drive Canton, Georgia. Dr. Byrne will be retiring effective May 15, 2018. The Riverstone Drive address will merge with the already established 132 Riverstone Terrace #101 Canton, Georgia address.

Our practice is very fortunate to have North Georgia Podiatry as part of our Village Podiatry Centers family. The addition of Dr. Byrne’s practice will allow us to extend our comprehensive high quality care throughout the growing Canton and Ellijay community.”

Dr. David Helfman, DPM and CEO, Village Podiatry Centers

Village Podiatry Centers offers an all-inclusive treatment of a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions, including podiatric surgery, laser treatment, innovative heel pain therapy, and diabetic foot care.

This transition has been bittersweet for Dr. Byrne as he has genuinely enjoyed interacting with his patients and working with his great staff. The Canton and Ellijay community can feel confident that they will receive exemplary care from Dr. Byrne’s replacement and colleague Dr. Ryan Fitzgerald. Dr. Fitzgerald earned his doctorate degree at Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, and completed his residency at MEDSTAR Washington Hospital Center, and at Georgetown University Hospital, in Washington D.C.
